Dell Snafu:Only $15 Instead of $148 140000 Monitors Sold
Dell has been done costly snafu in Taiwan: A promotional deal went online with the wrong price of $15 for a monitor.
WOW!! Just about eight hours, 26000 customers ordered 140000 monitors.
The Taiwanese regulators are now saying that Dell has to fulfill the order, which is standard procedure I guess. The original price was intended to be around $150.
After Dell changed the pricing, 471 grievances have been filed and Dell will successfully have to use the $15 price for clients who have prepared a single monitor. For the others, Dell will have to apply a unfathomable discount.
