        Why can't they put their prices up?

        • +22 votes

          Because usually when you advertise a sale, youre supposed to decrease the prices.

        • -12 votes

          @Orpheus:

          It's an ebay sale though, not the store's. They should be allowed to sell items for any price they like, and then you chose whether you want to buy from them or not.

        • +22 votes

          @jv: No. If they want to increase prices they can. Just dont bring attention to it and call it a sale.

          @jv: Yes. What do you think "participating store" means, jv?

        • +11 votes

          @jv:

          The sale is typically listed on their page as well.
          Also they've already fined other online stores such as Kogan for increasing prices for sales. So the precedent is there. This is arguably worse as they're increasing their own profit margin to take advantage of an ebay sale at no cost to themselves.

          “It is simply unacceptable for businesses to raise prices before applying a discount in order to give consumers the misleading impression that they are obtaining a larger percentage discount than is actually the case,” ACCC acting chair Dr Michael Schaper

          @polk:

          Also they've already fined other online stores such as Kogan for increasing prices for sales.

          That was Kogan advertising a sale and increasing their own prices.

          This is ebay giving you a discount. ebay do not set the store prices.

          @jv:

          Well we shall see if the ACCC agree. I don't see how Dr Schapers wording there would somehow exclude ebay price jacking.

          Participating stores. So JW computers elect to be part of the sale, and then set their prices higher in preparation for the sale, to give a deceptive 'discount'…. Sounds familiar….

          I said no such thing.

          All I said was they have every right to charge what they want. The store is not claiming to offer a 20% discount to their normal price (as Kogan did)

        • +1 vote

          they possibly do decrease some prices …. but jack up others ….
          the discount is paid for by ebay, not the retailer as you will notice from invoices, so it’s something that ebay needs to address to protect their brand ….

          @garage sale:

          so it’s something that ebay needs to address

          exactly… that's why the ACCC can't do anything about the retailer.

          @jv:

          i must be the only one that agrees with JV. As much as it sucks for us all. Ebay are doing the discount. Not the retailer. Retailer can charge what they like and they seem to be covered by Ebays discount blanket. If its too expensive , don't buy it. You have a choice.
          JV is only pointing out the facts.

          @jt0505t:

          I agree with JV as well, eBay is the main advertiser of the deal, the stores just join in, they don't actually advertise it themselves.

          Store reps have said before that eBay does not cover the entire discount hence why prices are jacked.

        •  

          @SlickMick: Well, he provided a photo I find useful. It's my understanding there are only 25-26 stores participating because eBay only partially covers the cost of the 20% discount. Consequently some participators increase prices which does not interest ACCC because they avoided false promises concerning previous prices. eBay provides a 20% discount off their prices, increased or not, which does not interest ACCC because they too avoided false promises concerning previous prices.

          @jv:

          As I said we will see if the ACCC agree.the retailer agreed to take part in the sale and then put their prices up and continues to hold the higher prices on their eBay store specifically because of that sale while offering conveniently 20% lower prices for the same items from the same store but from their website
          No one forced anyone to buy from Kogan during their shady sales either yet they get fined so that is an utterly ridiculous comment.

          @jv: Why are you so relentless to argue with Polk on every comment? What he is saying isn't unreasonable. Whether the ACCC can do anything or not, this is a shady practice and even though you haven't directly defended these actions, you come off as somebody who thinks this is fine and "Stores can do whatever they like". The whole reason the ACCC exists is to stop shady business practices like this. Instead of bashing the idea, you should be encouraging people to complain. If enough people do than the ACCC will be forced to look into it further. If you like fake sales and price jacking to mislead customers, why are you a member of Ozbargain? If you don't like these things, then why argue with people that want to complain? How do you think regulations are created? People need to issue complaints for anything to ever happen, this is fact. Your getting down voted for a good reason.

        their own website is usually cheaper with many retailers as they don’t pay ebay a commission ….

        for some like myer, they are trying to train their customer base from an in store experience to online ……like maccas app and deals so more use the app.

      Depends on whether the store hasn't got an immediate payment required on the item, if it doesn't say "Immediate payment required for this item" under "Postage and Payments" on the item page, you can.

      If you're in the market for a Surface like tablet/laptop, decent price (especially since they haven't hiked the price up… yet).

      Reviewed pretty well compared to the surface pro 3, and comes with a keyboard/LTE (which surface's at the entry level don't), so you'd be hard pressed to do much better switching to microsoft. However it's not the price of a lifetime, it was $835 a month ago - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/349059 - and the m5 is regularly under $800
