Troubleshooting (in relation to the stack controller)

  • Stone Edge is slow!
  • My Tracking numbers aren’t updating!
    • Check the stack error log to see if numbers are being sent
      • If not, make sure the “Status Event” for “Add Tracking Number” is set to “Notify Cart.”
    • If using a shared stack, ensure the stack computer is on and running Stone Edge.
      • The computer should be up-to-date and running the same version of the software as other computers.
    • My Inventory isn’t syncing!
      • Make sure your cart supports “Real Time Inventory.”
      • Check if old inventory posts are getting stuck in “Website Updates” or the “Error Log.”
