Mytopia Price Jacking on eBay Black Friday Sale

Haven't been posting regularly here.
Came across the ebay listing where price was inflated during blackfriday sale.

  1. Price of product was $479 and further 20% discount of blackfriday effective price should be $479-81.80 = 397.2

  2. Later the base price was inflated to $529-$93.80=435.2

The same has been done for another model of the electric scooter by the same seller.

Have reported to eBay and see below screenshot

    do not recommend opening in public, without adblocker turned on

  • Hope this image uploading site is okay

  • Yes they have jacked up. Saw many eBikes at $1400 plus 20% off but I bought one for $1100 plus 10% off 2 weeks ago.

    • Yeah it let me also add to cart at old price yesterday, but I was not sure and when I checked later the price was inflated.
      ebay rep mentioned he has reported the seller but I doubt any action will be taken

    And you're surprised, how?

  • Excuse my ignorance but how is this wrong? Aren't sellers free to set their prices (and change them) for whatever reason they want? I would think it's up to the consumer to do their due diligence to see if they are getting a good deal or if it's a fair price?
    Sorry this is a genuine question as I'm not across the issue of price jacking. Cheers.

    • i thought it was illegal to claim X% off and having jacked up the price making it more than normal.?

        Mytopia and eBay are two different entities. The seller is listing an item for x price and the platform is providing the vouchers.

      The problem is when they offer the product at $x as regular price and then join promotion like black Friday offering 20% discount and increase to price to $x+

      That's not genuinely offering 20% off on the price which they originally sell the product at. So why mislead by changing the price.

      They had the product at $479 until about 10 pm yesterday and further 20% off, later changed the price to $529 offering 20% off…

  • And now since the sale is over price is back to $479 from $529
