Tricky online sellers
November 24, 2021 11:14pm CST
I was going to buy chicken online this afternoon but I just cancelled it because the price I saw was not the real price. The owner said that it was last year's price. I told her that I wish you changed it so that your buyers would know. Anyway, I will just go to the convenience store close to my house. Have you encountered such online?

I never encountered this case,if the online price is different from real price,we can complain of it to supervision platform,and refuse pay.there is a intermediary platform between online buyer and seller,we pay money to intermediary when ordering sth,until correctly received goods,and we confirmed,then the money will transfer to seller.So seller dare not to send some false informations,unless they wouldn't like to get payment of goods

Here, she has to sell the item for the price she shows for it, online. The same goes for any in-store purchases, too. That's why merchants are so careful about pricing of their items... There are consequences for showing the wrong prices.
I came across a similar situation at the supermarket. There was an item on sales but when I went for checkout, I could see that a higher place was displayed on the point of sale. I then told her that a different price was displayed on the shelf. They told me that the sales is now over and that's the new price. I insisted that it's their fault that they didn't change the price. Eventually, they agreed to sell the item at the discounted price.
