> running about 20 products.  We are not verifying credit cards live, but
> batching everything out the back end.
> Here's the problem, on checkout there is at least a 20 second delay before IC
> responds with an error or success.  The server is under no load at any time,
> it just seems like IC is doing something very slowly,  Is this normal
> behavior? or have I forgotten to turn something on/off?  It also shows signs
> of slowness on the login page, but other pages pop just fine.
