    OH MY GOD.

    Just realised:

    'Please note that for items ordered from Amazon.co.uk this e-mail is only an acknowledgement of receipt of your order and your contract to purchase these items is not complete until we send you an e-mail notifying you that the items have been dispatched to you. For items purchased from third parties in Marketplace, this e-mail confirms the completion of your contract to purchase those items.'

    When buying from amazon, you have to receive a second email. BUT with marketplace sellers as soon as you get the confirmation email, that's it! They have to give it to you at the contracted price.
    Hmmm. I ordered one but I just spoke to my dad (solicitor) about it and he says that if the mistake is an obvious one (say someone accidentally advertised a Rolls Royce for sale for 10p), then the sale does not necessarily have to go through.

    I still have got the £8 order open, just need to click "Place your order" to have it 100% confirmed :eek:

    Should I do this? Is there any chance they might ask me for the full price later on? :confused:
    Go for it. You can always cancel your order later (they will have to tell you the price has changed)

    Hahaha the price has gone up xD

    As soon as I read the link about the 32GB one for £8.90, I ran to show my dad. He ordered seven :pinch:

    Wonder if we'll get them.

    I knew this from my Consumer law textbook, it actually has that exert from Amazon but I've ordered anyway. Buy clicking to buy you're actually making the offer which they can then accept or reject.

    EDIT: Hang on, it's sold by 'IT Hardware Direct Ltd'.. third party, right?
    Er yeah, but that's only applicable to amazon. They can accept or decline but for marketplace sellers, the confirmation email is to show that the sale is final.

    So then the sale is final? As this isn't sold by Amazon. :woo:

    Or no?

    Well that's what their T&Cs state so yeah, I'd assume so.

    "your contract to purchase" /=/ "their contract to sell"

    Thanks mate, people will abuse you for anything on here...
    Glad plenty of other people have ordered too, not just me if something goes horrifically wrong :rolleyes:
    Guess there's not much more we can do now, talk about a mad afternoon adrenaline rush!

    Can someone please explain what this means? I've ordered one, whilst the price was still £8.90, but really don't want to be charged £300 later on!

    Can they charge me the proper price? I don't care about losing £13 but £300 is hell of a lot!

    I don't know what the legal definition is, but the example my dad gave to me was the Rolls Royce one I mentioned in my earlier post. This seems like a similarly obvious mistake.

    Guess we'll just have to see what happens.
