Can't Access Staples - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I had to add to my comment i just posted.....if i had stock in Staples I would be furious!!! Ten of Thousands of dollars are being missed b/c Staples is obvisouly not hiring the best IT people. Staples, you better fix your ordering problems and fast....or you will be just a memory like Tower Records and BlockBusters.

I used to spend thousands in office supplies b/c i have my own business....but they won't let me give them my money. staples, you are losing all my dollars to amazon and jet.

Been trying all day to do business card orders on Staples and when I select the store for pickup I get the "SERVER ERROR
Oops! Something went wrong.
The server encountered an unexpected error.
Please try again a little later.
If the problem persists, please contact support."
Talked to support and they say they have big problems.
called local store to see if I could get business cards directly from them and they said I had to order on the web site.

I have been trying to place an online order for the past 4 days now. The first three days said that the website was down temporarily and I could call to place an order? I don't want to have to call, this has been an issue and affected our business in a unproductive way. We are now out of various supplies due to the issue with the website. I went to order supplies using option 1 hr in store pick up and when I select an item I get a message that reads, order cannot be placed an error has occurred, close the window...And then what? This is not good for business at all, I am frustrated and disappointed at the situation. TRIED TO SEND FEEDBACK TODAY AND IT COMES BACK WITH WEBSITE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE - WTF?

One minute it was up, and the next (less than a minute) it was down. Safari is saying, "Can't find server." This site is saying, "it's down just for me..." Gee...don't I feel special.

Done with Staples. First they tried to deny me my rebate last month. Wouldn't let me log in today, had to change my password, still wouldn't work. Site keeps crashing. Fed up with this co. since they closed their store in my hometown last year. Today is the last straw. Taking my business--and I own a business--elsewhere.

The site either won't come up at all, or when I get in and log in, it's in Portuguese and English is not an option to click on. I got as far as trying to order something, but it redirected to a loop site and my security software shut it down.

Confirmed that website is having problems. They boast they are the "second largest internet retailer" source Businesswire 11/13/13 8:00am company news release announcing their upcoming earnings conference call coming 11/20/13 at 11:00 am.

I think their stock is a short. They have redundant processing sites and are a worldwide company. It has been hours now of the same problems. Time to short.
