The singer's hotly-anticipated collaboration with Topshop became available to purchase on the clothing chain's website on Wednesday morning, but high demand left customers unable to pay for their purchases.
@TopshopHelp my order wont go through? Keeps saying 'timed out' when I try to pay ???

I've tried submitting my payment for @Topshop Ivy Park three times and then it stops loading. Seriously?!

Topshop's customer service Twitter account replied to annoyed shoppers, telling them, "Sorry, due to high demand, we're experiencing some technical issues. We should be back up and running shortly."
They told worried customers who had entered card details multiple times that they would receive an email notification if the order had gone through.
But those who did manage to get their hands on the range of leggings, vests, bodies, hoodies, crop tops, shorts and accessories couldn't stop tweeting their happiness.

The only benefit of my radiator making strange noises and waking me up pre 6am this morn is being able to buy #IvyPark in peace online!
