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....
Yes, I've seen that many times, too. It's weird how for most things Amazon has some of the best prices, but then on occasion you run across something that's ridiculously more expensive at Amazon compared to elsewhere...

I have a question or more of a concern. I have a product hub of a hot toy just recently released. I have checked the amazon site everyday for the item. I have only found it for sale at a much higher price than advertised, so I'm not using the amazon capsule. the top google ad on the page is from...

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 situation like this?Thanks

What is the strangest purchase you have seen on your Amazon orders list?e.g. totally unrelated to what you write about in your hubs or the amazon items you have chosen to relate to your writing.

Why doesn't Amazon provide prices for some items?I am trying to add information on my ebook to a hub via the Amazon capsule, but I keep getting a message saying Amazon would not provide a price for the item - my book is no longer on free promotion, but it is only 99 cents - is that the reason why...

I don't understand why some of the prices of Amazon products I choose for my hubs are so weird....like pajama pants listed for 80 dollars, or a book listed for one dollar? Can someone please explain the Amazon pricing system...and wouldn't these weird prices scare off potential customers? (At...
