I just read how some site cancelled orders under the guise of ‘pricing error’. Why should this be the responsibility of the customer? Why do most mature online stores just send the item despite it being a ‘pricing error’ and some of the newbies use this as an excuse to cancel orders? It appears that they can cancel anytime with this excuse. The best of legalise is clearly explained on ebay. The display on their website of an item is a contract to supply it once payment is made. The payment is a CONTRACT on the part of the buyer to accept the item (if it genuinely has no defects) once it is sent to him.
Why dont those affected by such arbitrariness join and take legal action against such sites? Once they have put up an item on their website and accepted money from the customer, it is their duty to provide the item at that cost.
I find some Dimers actually telling even as a deal is posted that ‘Definitely these orders will be cancelled’. Instead, we should ensure jointly that such orders are not cancelled.
What do you say?
