Can't Pay for Simple Bots ebook

I can't pay for the SimpleBots ebook.  Pressing "Proceed to Checkout" does nothing, and yes I have the agree to terms checked.

I don't have a PayPal account, but that button does seem to work.

OS:  Mac OS X 10.6.8
Browser:  Chrome 18.0.1025.163
(I think I properly attached the screencap if not let me know)

Though the button works, I also can't pay for it. The checkout demands I put in a country, and the only options are the US and Canada. I'm not in either, and I don't have a Paypal.

What do?
There are more payment options (other than paypal), which include; Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. You'll see them in the step after you've added your name and address.

Now as far as the country options are concerned, I'm not sure if that was intentional or an oversight. If a staff member does not respond (to clarify this issue), then I would suggest that you click on "Add a note to your order" (shown in the step illustrated above), and note your actual location. Then when you complete the fields for your address, pick the U.S. (and any state). Proceed to the next step and select your payment method and click on "Complete my purchase".

If the country/state fields are NOT passed to the credit card provider, then it should work fine. If the information is passed, then it may be rejected, (but technically, no harm done).

I hope that helps. Unfortunately, other than emailing Instructables (at their address shown at the bottom of the website), there really isn't anything else I can suggest.
All right, you can use the regular checkout now.
Odd, it was working last week. I'll check it out.
