Argos website problems

Argos is one of the most well known online shopping destinations in the UK, which first made its success as an offline retailer in the UK and Ireland. If the Argos website is down today or experiences online ordering problems for different reasons, it can be a nightmare for those relying on this store for their shopping needs.


The most common problems would be related to Argos online going down completely, or occasionally their website could produce error messages and run slowly. The online website receives over 300 million visitors a year, so any downtime can impact thousands of shoppers and many more during busy Christmas shopping periods.

If the Argos website is down right now, or the online ordering isn’t working then leave your status update below. You will also be able to see problems reported by others as well.

    Disgraceful online experience.
    This website is a joke.
    I’d love to ask their CEO to go online and make a purchase… What shambles!

  • K. Thomas

    I have e mailed Argos enquiries wanting to know if taking a digi recorder box still under guarantee back to the store it was purchased from is the correct procedure when a message appears on my TV , ‘that it is unable to record, an error has occurred’. Will I have an immediate replacement? The e mail address was correct, but I have a reply from the ‘postmaster” stating the message could not be served.
    What am I to do next?

Get as far as filling in details, email and create pass word but keeps taking me back to same screen every time WITHOUT TELLING ME WHY go duck yourself Argos I’m getting really hacked off here. What the hell!?

  • Gary

    Argos won’t let me delete an item from my shopping basket. I am signed in to my account with them so every time I log in, the item returns. I have checked all browser settings and tried with two different laptops. Completely tinpot, I hope you go bust Argos, absolutely laughable.

  • Jacky Green

    Been trying all week to go onto the site, every time l have tried l receive an access denied error, l have even tried a different search engine. I have now
    decided to shop with Amazon.

  • Joseph Grant

    I’ve tried paying 5 times. The worrying thing is that the payment has been processed on my credit card and my PayPal everytime but nothing has cleared on the Argos site

  • Eveizzy

    Service unavailable zero size object for 2 days now upon checkout. What’s going on???

  • Kal Solette

    I have been trying to order a TV through them for two days now. Neither the app nor site will let complete a transaction. It either says it cannot complete the order, can’t find the URL, or can’t check the stock. They must losing out on tens of thousands of pounds worth of business at this time of year. I’ll give them one more day then I go elsewhere.

  • Laura

    I’ve tried several times today over 8 hours.

  • Dilson Von Belper

    ARRRGGGHHHHHH waited in all day for
    delivery ….then get text sayning that it hasnt even left the
    depot…….effffing useless yodel and argos
    Website down and Yodel are a waste of time …never again….

  • Rosie Adams

    To told to select delivery date, which I did and then told that the Argos site ‘is not working’. Rang to check stock in store and went obeyed all instructions only to be told, “Sorry. We are unable to locate the …… store due to technical problems”. What a complete waste of half an hour!

  • Ingrid Brown

    When i try to reserve or check for delivery tells me I have to reserve via an expensive text service or costly phone call. Same with delivery. Ridiculous on black Friday weekend. Took 8 texts to order 2 things as you have to order separately and even when you choose a store it gives you 3 options so that’s another 2 texts!!

  • carol

    I have items in trolley that are out of stock, but it will not let me remove them.

  • Matty Genesis Sales

    Site keeps timing out and app isnt logging in….

  • Andrew Smith

    You need to fix your site. Always very slow or get time out. I give up buying stuff from your guys

  • numeniusaqua

    Been trying to buy an item online since 1030 – it is now 13:55 . Takes all your details then sends you in a loop when you apply either a discount code or gift card number – just sends you back to re-enter your address manually, then back to the order page and over and over. Their telephone line ordering says they cannot accept gift card numbers OR apply any discount codes! Don’t believe you argos, you are just exploiting a problem!

  • Julie

    I’ve been trying for the past 6 days to reserve an item. They are going to lose a lot of business, which isn’t good considering the time of year

  • Rachel

    ‘We need a moment’ for two hours and counting. Must be losing a lot of business Argos. I can see Amazon might getting mine if it’s not sorted soon

  • Steve Marsh

    Wow it’s back – but for how long?

  • Katie

    All i want is to order the wardrobe i spent 2 weeks deciding on and a coffee table but no. ‘We need a moment’ ive been trying for hours now!!

  • Paul Brant

    Been trying all morning and cant get past “Sorry we need a moment” page.

  • jackie burroughs

    Happens every year!! Still down trying to get on their site all morning looking else where like I always end up doing.How come other companies manage at this time of the year but not Argos??

  • Katy

    it’s been saying this all morning :(
    Sorry, we need a moment
    Demand for this part of the site is really high.
