Many orders getting cancelled from multiple sites! What's going on?!

Hi all...

OK taking this opportunity to vent my anger, disappointment and suspicions at the continuous cancellation of orders from multiple sites, multiple customers, all within a short period of time.

Recently, some bargains have been posted on HUKD from various different sites, some honestly did seem a little too good to be true, others perfectly fair. I've had about 6 or 7 orders cancelled all within roughly a week! This seems rather odd to me, so I'm beginning to become suspicious.

Some examples are SceneIt! £6.98 and Blacksite Area 51 PS3 £2.99 from Sainsburys, Catherine Cookson Collection DVD £4.44 at Asda, 16GB USB stick £1.99 @ Play, plus others.

Clearly I'm not the only one as most others have had their same orders cancelled for various reasons. These can be 'stock issues', 'availability issues' and 'price errors'. However, there have been the odd few rare customers who happen to receive their orders successfully which really adds salt to the wounds! These orders could have even been made AFTER mine was made. Hmmm!

This is the first time I've experienced so many cancellations in one go and from various sites, so I'm wondering what on earth is going on? I can't help but to feel suspicious, as well as very angry and disappointed. It's put me off buying any more bargains online as they're only going to end in disappointment.

Is anyone else feeling the same? Is there something fishy going on? Is this a marketing ploy? Are there worldwide web database issues?

A few years ago these deals would be honoured. Now you find that once a good deal is posted it spreads across the net and the sites are overwhelmed with orders which usually end up being cancelled.

some of the above companies use 'The Hut Group' for order fulfilment, so there is possibly one reason why they are cancelled.

absolutely! this is the one problem with Hukd and mse-they tip you off to great deals,but they actually destroy the chance of getting a misprice-if only one or two people order then they will most likely honour-if hundreds/thousands order it then they wont. The exception was the zavvi ebay deal on wii consoles,but I suspect thats because they realised that 100 negatives on their feedback would be far more damaging than honouring the deal.

I was disapointed when my £0.49 induction hod never turned up. Only joking.

I'm sure some sites make pricing error just to get extra e-mail info for their marketing departments.

I think these sites need to be a lot more careful with their pricings, and the law needs changing to make them honour these deals, as it is effectively false advertising, mistake or otherwise.

I had a sainsburys wii game cancelled today. Their systems should be set up to ensure stock availability is monitored as the orders go through.

Probably due to snow, lot's more people ordering online, Some stock check isn't always accurate, Especially going to affect cheap on offer items.

I have had Next cancel my order of a fleece for my son! I ordered it online as all stores near me were OOS in his size, but as it was available online I bought the jeans and top to complete his outfit for a present!
Then they went and cancelled the fleece!! I know its not major issue, but a bit annoying when I bought the rest of the items to make a whole outfit :)
