Hi all,

We are running Magento Enterprise and a couple of our sites process B2B transactions.  We are largely seasonal and due to this fact these sales transactions can sometimes reach 250-300 SKUs per order.  We are seeing abnormally long post times after the customer completes the check out process and hits submit.  Sometimes 15-20 min or longer.  The delay is long enough that we field a lot of calls from people concerned that the checkout process is broken, when in fact theres just a heavy delay while the server processes the order details.

I realize that Magento was probably not built originally to accomodate such a transaction, but would anyone care to share any suggestions as to how optimize the checkout process for a large number of items in the cart?

Thanks so much

Ben
