Dell Ordered to Honor Online Pricing Error

Kara Reeder

After Dell discovered an online pricing error that offered 19-inch LCD monitors for only $15, it corrected the listing to the intended price of $148. However, Taiwan consumer regulators have ordered Dell to honor the initial price, according to The Register.


Taiwan's Consumer Protection Commission says more than 26,000 customers placed orders for nearly 140,000 monitors. If Dell doesn't make good on the erroneous price,

"Taipei will consider it a violation of the country's fair trade laws and seek legal recourse."
