Bad Ecommerce

Just completed our on line shopping at ASDA, logged in and reserved by delivery slot.

Completed the shopping, but my slot had vanished, it's not before the cut of deadline of 5PM, and I haven't gone over the 3 hour limit, I only takes us about 20 minutes to shop!

So what went wrong??

I don't know, but if anyone from ASDA on line shop reads this perhaps they might wish to comment.
