AbeBooksHidden Pricechanges

Review updated:

CAUTION: I experienced a major price change - without any alert. Chose a book at US$ 80, 00. Price changed to US$ 290, 00 when the item was placed in the shopping basket. No notification - no alert!!

Comment from Abebooks Customer Support: "I understand that the book you wish to order is appearing in your shopping basket at a different price than what was displayed in the online listing. This kind of price discrepancy occurs when a bookseller updates the price of a listing - it will appear at the new, correct price in the shopping basket even though the updated price is not yet reflected in the search results."

Imagine this kind of attitude in your supermarket...

    I purchased a book through AbeBooks. The process was handled by Thriftbooks. I received the book two weeks later. Great merchants.

    Wow. Sounds like flat out fraud to me.
    Especially since AbeBooks automatically sorts the books from lowest to highest in price when they are searched, meaning, the cheapest book is the first book that will be listed but then when you put it in the cart it increases more than 300 percent? That's ridiculous.
    And very very very advantageous to that bookseller who lists his books at a ridiculously low price in order to get excellent placement on the page, and then more than triples the price when you put it in the basket to purchase it! That's flat out FRAUD.
