    Money's been taken out of all of our accounts.
    Iirc, Amazon process the monetary side of marketplace orders and hold the funds until the company confirm the order for dispatch. Either way this is exactly the same as happened when I ordered from them before (Yep, I ordered again anyway :p:)

    I've just tried to check how long it took them to cancel last time, but my Dad's deleted the email to 'stop his inbox getting too full'.:rolleyes:
    (lol wth would anyone delete emails)
    EDIT: Looked on the Amazon account and it doesn't show up there either, I guess it doesn't record cancelled orders.

    yes, please do, especially those who did bulk orders, we're more interested in seeing those than single iPods that might have been just bought independently/borrowed etc. :yep:

    I have the money taken from my available balance, but not officially taken it out of my account. They probably wont take it, its probably just ordering procedure.

    This is referring to misleading prices rather than mistakes.
    As in putting a price of £5 + £1 delivery but then actually dumping the customer with £500 in processing fees.
    Or deliberately advertising lower prices to lead a customer into the store than charging higher on the till.

    It doesn't apply to the honest mistakes of an online seller

    if it is out of your available balance, then the transaction has been successful, and a direct debit has been imposed on your account. that money is no longer yours, and it has been technically paid for.

    I think the money has been taken from my account as the option to cancel has now gone. However, while browsing I found a review of another i pod product which was cancelled as out of stock before being advertised at a higher price after someone was emailed. Think it was a 5th generation white ipod if you're interested.
