curious to the laws of mis-prices

I'm curious about misprice deals, If a company advertised an item at £x.xx and i placed an order at that price, but no money has been taken from me, then I get an email saying sorry for the error in this listing blah blah blah.

This then means that the seller hasn't entered in to a contract with me, because the money hasn't been taken from my account, therefore there is nothing i can do.

I'm I correct, put another way. A contract is only binded once the seller has taken money from you.

Generally yes. It's a little more variant than that but if a company takes the money from you it definitely makes it much easier to establish a contract was made.
oooh feel kind of honoured that Mr/Mrs Admin Sir/Ma'am answered my post.
Well I think a few members know more than myself on this so hopefully they will stop by and answer also.

There's a few variants to this but if they have sent you the emails and taken the money and the price is a reasonable one they would have a hard time backing out at that point. If it's just an automated email and no money taken then they can back out easily and very legally.
doesn't the sticky in "comments and suggestions" answer this? (haven't read it all myself)
