Was going to buy this.  Your advertisement on the front page stated the addon was $25 (has since been edited out since I have emailed you), but when you click on the link, it take's you to a place and charges $59.  I contacted you and you refuse to honor the price that you are advertising your product for.  Fairly bad business practice.  I will no longer purchase any addon's from you in the future.

Hello,

 

I already explained you the situation that the price that was set on the first page was there from the first release of the add-on and its cost was $25. From that time, we have already added a lot of functionality in there and of course the price of the add-on was changed (it was changed several months ago) and on the marketplace the price was correct. We just forgot to change the price on the first page of the thread. You requested the discount, but unfortunately, for now we have no discounts and can't offer you a better price for it. We are sorry for misunderstanding, we already updated the first post of this thread and will check the others also asap.

 

Thank you.

You should be a stand up company and honor the price you are advertising.  What you are doing could be considered false advertising and illegal many places.

Dude, they just forgot to update the pricing on this 1 forum location. They apologized about their mistake. 

 

Their add-on has improved a lot and they added tons of features. $59,- is a fair price especially so for a good add-on by a company that is reliable and offers support.

Dont wanna jump on you here bud, but this is not true.

There is no contract of supply until payment is exchanged and terms accepted they are under no obligation to sell it at a price listed somewhere incorrectly.

$25 is not a realistic price for an addon with the current functionality. The keep adding more functions and you cant expect Cart Power to work for free.

Not expecting them to work for free.  Just expecting them to sell a product for what they are advertising it for.  Just wondering, say you bought something on eBay for $25.  Would you expect to pay for the item and be done with it?  Or do you think its perfectly OK for the seller to come back and say, I want $59 and not the $25 I told you i would sell it to you for?  Just sayin, if you advertise something, then you should be an honest person and honor the deal.

Actually, Google even states it:

 

State and federal laws are in place to protect consumers from false or misleading advertising. These laws make deceptive claims illegal. No business may make falsemisleading, or deceptive claims about a product regarding its price.

 

I know this is US law, which obviously does not cover the world hehe, why I stated many places.

Depends on the context of  the "advertisement".

 

A forum post is really related to the date that the item was posted.

I would not take any price I found here as gospel, but instead would go to the developer's site and review the price (with options included) and any other T&C's that relate to the actual purchase.  They may charge for support or updates and that wouldn't necessarily be factored into the price, but certainly would be part of the cost of ownership.

 

You can't rely on any info in a 1yr old posting to be valid.  Note that the version of cs-cart has probably changed 5 times since the original post.

 

Note too that places like the cs-cart marketplace do not account for product options that may modify the price. So what you see there may only be accurate for one set of option modifiers.  I.e. I sell addons for V4 and MVE at a different price than the base price listed which is for V2.

@parodius420:

 

Your eBay example is apples and oranges...not the same thing at all. Unless you are claiming that you bought the addon for $25.00 and now Cart Power is demanding you pay an extra $34.

 

I doubt seriously that Cart Power set out to deliberately deceive. It's more likely they forgot to update this forum post after the price increase. I have bought a couple of addons from them and find them to be very good people to deal with.

Not stating they are being deceptive on purpose, was just pointing out how it could get someone in trouble. I am done on the topic, its stupid to argue.  I am just saying, if I advertised a product, I would sell it for what I am advertising it for, not over twice of what I am advertising it for, especially on a page that I have edited multiple time's to add new features etc to the list and kept the price the same.  There has been several time's that I have sold an item only to find out that I could have got a lot more if I canceled the order and relisted it, because prices on things fluctuate on any given week.  I just feel you should honor what you preach.  That's all.

Still doenst matter Im afraid, no contract anywhere in the world is binding about  th eprice until you the consumer actually pays the money thats when the contract takes place.

If it allowed you to pay $25.00 then he came back and said its $59 then yes, they would have to honour the $25.

 

I know its a shitter but that the way it is, Like is say no hard feelings its just a fact.

 

Maybe he could have offered you a gesture of % discount for spotting and alerting him to the price issue, which possibly avoided them further embarrasment, buts that his choice

Thank everyone here for the support. We have more than 60 add-on on our store and about 40 that we have no time to publish. We are working on improving the functionality of our add-on all the time and really want to make them perfect and suitable for most users of CS-Cart. Of course, we are trying to update all the info everywhere, but sometimes such situations happen. As I said, we are sorry for it and have actualized the info already.

 

Thank you.

For some reason the live search does not always work. I don't know why. At other times it works fine.

  • ability to clear search history, ability to delete separate search phrase;

  • ability to determine the minimum number of characters required for starting search;

  • ability to show/hide ajax loader for live search process;

  • usage of the ajax technology (only one request after customer finished entering search phrase);

  • ability to offer some suggestions according to the characters typed (new!);

  • easily adjusted search area ( search is available in keywords, features, options, product code, categories (new!), subcategories (new!);

Dear Cart-Power,

 

Can you please update my site/add-on with these new features you mention?  Please keep the other changes we have made intact.  I have also sent an e-mail request to do so.

 

Thank you.
