Looks like they've sorted it by not letting you checkout -more a glitch than a hack I reckon -it was all low priced stuff ,
#2

Yes but this time it was free postage in the items as well so just 1p an item, crazy!

Yes, low priced diesel generators and pallet trucks and trolley jacks. Cheap stuff like that.

I bought five 750g jars of Nutella for 1p each. Priorities.

What sorts of things were involved in the glitch? I can't see anything listed for 1p
#12
How do you quickly do a search to find all items that are 18 with free postage? :)

... Which has now gone up to £3.55. They processed the payment at 1p so I wonder if they will process it for me?

And so it begins.

Hello,

We're writing to let you know that your order from Home Secure has been cancelled because the price of the item(s) wasn't set correctly by the Seller. In most cases, you pay for items when they're dispatched to you, so you won't be charged for items that are cancelled.*

There was a problem with a third party auto repricing tool. Probably all orders will be cancelled.

This is their last email:

"We first became aware of this issue at about 19:00GMT – the problem was rectified so that any new prices sent from ******* were correct by 20:00GMT. Since then, we have been working with Amazon to identify affected products and to revert these to their original prices. We have also been working with Amazon to identify all affected sellers and SKUs and in particular to identify FBA items so that these are not shipped. The process of updating prices is largely complete (as long as updates are still enabled on your account). If you can still see incorrect prices please email support and we will action asap. We have requested that Amazon do not penalise sellers for this issue."
