Amazon Glitch Leads to Items Being Sold for Almost Nothing
Christmas is a time of giving but, as far as retailers are concerned, it isn't necessarily a time of giving away. Yet on Saturday, some U.K.-based retailers were aghast as their wares were suddenly being sold on Amazon.com for one penny. No, this wasn't an attempt by Amazon to wipe out a recalcitrant book publisher or diaper maker. Instead, it was an alleged glitch that affected some of those on Amazon's Marketplace who used the Repricer Express function.
