I just got an estimate to fix my Canon GL2 from Canon Online Repair via email. It says in part:

So I called hte phone # and the customer service rep informed me that it takes 24 hours for the online system to be updated, so you have to pay over the phone with a credit card.

Canon needs to immediately update the system when their email goes out.
How many people log on to pay and then find they have to call? Maddening.
