If you realise you’ve paid more for an item than it was advertised for at the time, ask for the shop to refund the difference between what you paid and what was advertised.

Your legal rights depend on something fairly tricky in the law: whether or not you have a ‘contract’.

Keep any evidence of the mistake, if you can – for example, you could take a photo of the advert in the shop window.

It’s the same if you see an item advertised anywhere for a lower price than the one on the price tag.

Note: Depending on which text editor you’re pasting into, you might have to add the italics to the site name.

Your legal rights in a shop will depend on whether you’ve paid for the item yet or not.

Assuming that an incorrect advertised price is truly an error rather than an attempt to deceive, companies are only obligated to honor it if a customer makes an offer at that price and the company accepts it. This exchange creates a contract between buyer and seller. In a store, customers make an offer simply by indicating they want to buy an item — for example, by bringing it up to the register — and the company accepts the offer by ringing up the sale. In the brick-and-mortar world, contracts don’t get formed around pricing errors because the store just won’t ring up the sale. But online selling, in which transactions are processed automatically, has added a new layer of complexity to the issue.

If you take an item to the till and are told the price on the tag or label is a mistake, you don’t have a right to buy the item at the lower price. You could still try asking the seller to honour the price.

A buyer-seller contract exists only when an offer is made and accepted.

If something you want to buy is advertised at the wrong price, you may be able to buy it at the lower price.

Consumers who seize upon a fantastic advertised offer that they’re later told is a mistake might cry “bait and switch” — and they frequently do. However, the Federal Trade Commission has a very specific definition of illegal bait-and-switch schemes, which it refers to as “bait advertising.” In a bait-and-switch scam, a company intentionally advertises a specific item at a specific price simply to get customers into the store. At that point, the company tries to sell them a different product at a higher price or on terms “more advantageous to the advertiser.” Customers who demand the advertised offer are never told that it’s a mistake, but they’re never allowed to actually get that product at that price.

If the shop sold you an item at a lower cost than they meant to, you don’t have to give it back – they’re only legally entitled to ask you for more money if you’d talked about the price (eg £100) and they ended up charging you much less instead (eg £10).

Depending on the company’s terms and conditions, you’ll have legal rights (and a contract) either:

When an e-commerce website has had an incorrect price entered into its database, it can end up not only advertising that price but also accepting orders and charging customers’ credit cards for that amount. The central issue here is whether retailers can void the contract created when orders were accepted. The easiest way for a company to deal with such situations is to have website “terms of use” that clearly state the company can cancel orders and refund customers’ money because of pricing errors (or for any reason). Otherwise, a common law doctrine known as “unilateral mistake of fact” applies. This doctrine allows a party to a contract to set aside the contract if honoring it would be “unconscionable,” or if the other party could have reasonably assumed it was a mistake. A $1,000 item advertised for $10 likely would meet this definition.

A pricing error in an advertisement can be a nightmare for a small business. Imagine customers flooding into a store expecting a great deal because an advertisement said an item would be “$10.00” rather than “$1000.” The question is whether the store is legally obligated to sell the item at the advertised price. The answer is probably no, but don’t expect customers to be happy about it.

In general, there’s no law that requires companies to honor an advertised price if that price is wrong. Typographical errors, miscommunication and other glitches can result in items being offered at what appear to be deep discounts — discounts that would be ruinous for the company if it were forced to honor them. Laws against false or deceptive advertising require an intent to deceive on the part of the advertiser. If a company can demonstrate that an advertised price was simply a mistake, then it’s not false advertising. Still, if the mistake isn’t too big, it may be in the company’s best interest to honor the advertised price rather than anger so many potential customers.

If you have a contract, the company can’t usually cancel your order, even if they realise they’ve sold you something at the wrong price. They’ll only be able to cancel it if it was a genuine and honest mistake on their part that you should’ve noticed.
