got to be a typo on there part!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From their Terms and Conditions:

2.3 An acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via e-mail when you place your order, but acceptance of your offer to buy the Goods will not take place until after your payment is taken and you receive your confirmation of payment. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any contract is subject to these Terms and Conditions.

Confirmation of payment is generally automatically e-mailed - they may have no grounds to cancel!

Though:
2.6 The Supplier reserves the right the decline any order for any reason.

Is your PayPal account actually showing the payment as paid or pending authorisation like many retailers do it.
very good deal
Lets see what happens...........

No contract exists between the Customer and the Supplier for the sale of any goods or services until the Supplier has received and accepted your order and the Supplier has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once the Supplier does so, there is a binding legal contract between us.

That is incorrect in law, but good grounds for hoping they will honour it

As a lawyer myself, I think I know a little about contract law.

What you have said is completely incorrect, however, they can cancel the contract but only because of the clause which I quoted above:

2.6 The Supplier reserves the right the decline any order for any reason.

and NOT because of a general contractual principle. If this was the case, as you seem to think, contract law would fail.

That clause could be argued in that it places an unfair imbalance in favour of the seller. Many times ambiguous or contradicting terms, such as the two clauses above, have been awarded in favour of the consumer.

Indeed, UCTA permits this, however it is unlikely that in this instance a court would take that viewpoint.

PS: All discussion along that line is purely academic- only a fool would take somebody to court over a switch. A thousand switches? Maybe. But as I said above, unlikely a court would decide in favour of the consumer in this particular case.
