How to deal with "A network timeout error occurred. Please try again later." in iTunes Connect

I first encountered this error about a week ago, while trying to set up a new purchase item for an existent app. Given the recommendation to try again later, I assumed it's a transient error and I ignored it.

About a week later I tried again, with the same result:

Hmm, now this doesn't look any more like a transient error, unless a really unlikely coincidence it at play here. In any case I alerted Apple. Then I figured I should also try with a different browser, and sure enough it works fine with Safari.

So if you're getting this too, try switching to Safari and you may be able to work around it.

Thank you so much for this. This has had me pulling out my hair now for a few weeks. Never thought of trying Safari.
