Has anyone noticed that products are listed at outragous prices? For example List price $14.99 Amazon Price 129.99? Looks as if typo, but I have seen quite a few. Of course I dont list them in a capsule for fear that the buyer will shy away from the site but is there a solution or explanation?
I've seen that too Paula and I'm not so sure it isn't deliberate. The careful buyer will ignore it, the buyer who just wants the product regardless of the price will buy it.
Not sure if it is a marketing ploy or not, never clicked through the check-out to see if the price remains the same.
It's happened to me before, but it usually gets fixed pretty quickly. One of my books on Amazon was listed by one marketplace seller at over $400. While I was flattered that he thought someone would actually pay that much for a copy of my book, I knew it must be a typo...LOL
I wish Amazon wouldn't list 'marketplace' prices as if they were offical direct sales prices. It gives traders a chance to try and gouge buyers and look pretty bad....

I thought I saw a discussion on this recently but I can't find it now, but is there somewhere where we can report an Amazon product that has a list price lower than the Amazon price? What is the best thing to do in a...
