        1. I too face the same problem. I have been trying to add bank details but the page remains stuck saying “LOADING…” However, today I tried the same thing after installing Firefox browser and it worked like a charm.

          You try too, since the website says “This site is best viewed at 1920 x 1080 resolution in Mozilla Firefox 58.0+”
