Hello,

 

I ordered some taps online for our new bathroom. Today the taps for the basin unit turned up but not the bath set. The retailer is no refusing to send out the bath taps due to the price being wrong on the website.

 

We thought we got a discount for buying the bath and basin sets together. Turns out the price was wrong on their website and they are now refusing to send without the extra payment.

 

Do they have to send as they have accepted and taken payment and sent half of the order.

 

 

Thanks in advance

Matt

Had an email from them now saying that the 2nd tap wasn't on the original order. I have forwarded to them the 3 emails that show both items on the order.

If you have proof of the order then i'm sure they have to fulfil it!

Have they cashed the payment?

If it's a genuine mistake they can refuse to supply at the price given. You could go further into it but I'd suggest you email them or write to them that you intend to return the goods they have already supplied, as they can't fulfill the contract for the price they had stated for the 'set'. The return will be at their cost, and you require a full refund, including any delivery charges, plus your reasonable expenses for calls etc. If a companies attitude isn't good from the outset then walk away while you can and find somewhere that will give you the service and you'd gladly pay that little bit extra to get it.

yes they have taken payment. I have 2 sets of confirmation emails 1 from sagepay that lists the items and one from them that lists the items. I think they are trying to get out of supplying the second set for the lower price

So now it's more clear that they have indeed taken payment and have fully confirmed it, my fault for playing on the side of caution. If they don't supply the goods at the price they advertised, and HAVE taken money for in full or a deposit , they are now in breach of contract by asking for more money. You can ask them to rectify that by honouring the contract or giving you a refund. If they refund then you can claim the difference from them if you have to pay a higher price for the same product elsewhere. Write to them and give them 7 days notice that they are in breach of contract. Might also be worth calling your local Trading Standards to make a note, if nothing else, of what the retailer has told you.

That's as i thought, if payment has been accepted then the transaction is legally binding.

Thanks for clearing that up Crapstone :wink:

Well they have ignored 3 emails from me so far. The last one sent was to cancel under the DSR. I gave them 30 days to refund and 14 days to contact me regarding collection.

 

I paid with my credit card. What would be my next course of action.

 

 

Thanks

You could contact your bank and request a 'chargeback' on the card

I've no experience of this (except it was done against me on ebay) so i would have a look around the site for more info on it :wink:

Did you send the cancellation within 7 days under the DSR? Can you be more specific and say what payment they took and what the total was for? Was it all under one order? If the order came to above £100 and you used your credit card then the credit provider may be equally responsible. Did the company provide your rights for cancellation?

The cancellation expiry period of seven working days begins on the day after the day on which the consumer receives the goods, so if the consumer did not yet receive the goods (as would appear to be the case) we have yet to get as far as that.

Which is what I have sought to find out as they have received part of the order. You answer the question then. Go on get on with it! :|

Hi, I believe you can get a full refund if you send the items back. What you need to do is contact the third party and inform them of the following

 

You ordered some items from them, this was a contract between you and them.

You understand that there was a listing error in the price and that the contract was not complete as you did not receive all the items.

You therefore want to send the items back for a full refund plus the postage for your to return them.

If you donot recieve a reply you will issue a claim in the small claims court which will incure furthur costs for them.

 

Try phoning them first and explaining the above, and then say you want a aknowledgement via email if they agree, if they cant then tell them to tell a manager or request to speak to a manager, and be nice and have a smile, nobody likes the angry person.

 

as the order has not been fully sent to you then you are within your right to send it back for a refund (do not send it back unless they accept to have it back), doesnt matter how much time has expired.

 

The reason why a chargeback shouldnt be used is because you can be arrested for fraud. It is possible the seller tells the Police and say you paid and have the items. unless you have proof you sent it back.

 

Have you paid by visa? they do charge back

have you paid by a credit card? you will have legal expense insurance to fight the tap company and make them say sorry.

 

Ohh BTW they dont have to send you the item as comet sold tv's for 1p then later realised their mistake and said it was a error.

 

Regards T.K

 

 

I am not legally qualified but my experience on life is passed on to you, my advice is a guide and should be checked before taking it at face value

Hiya Folks,

 

Ok to clear things up.

 

1: Order placed for bath taps AND sink taps.

2: Paid amount stated on Invoice/Order Confirmation. Provided by sagepay

3: Received via email order confirmation from Retailer

4: Received payment confirmation from sagepay although stated payment wouldnt be taken until order checked.

5: Payment taken

6: Goods received minus tap Bath Taps.

 

Emailed retailer stating not received full order they state that bath tap wasn't on order I then emailed them proof that bath tap was on order as shown on order confirmation AND payment confirmation.

 

Sent request to cancel under DSR 6 days after receipt of half the order.

 

I have an email from them saying that the bath taps were in my basket but were deleted before payment.

 

The seller has acknowledged that they have only sent out sink taps and not the bath taps.

 

 

So in short.

 

They have received an order for 2 taps, Bath and sink.

They have sent out the sink taps but not the taps with the pricing error.

I have an order confirmation AND a payment confirmation for the full Invoice amount.

 

They are no ignoring my emails.

 

My full order has not been received.

 

In my payment email it states

 

Thank you for your order. Your card was authorised successfully butNO money has been debited from your account.Your card will only be debited when Frenix LTD (TBB) review the order and release the payment.

 

So the retailer has then reviewed my order and STILL not picked up on the error.

 

Surely at some point a contract has been formed.

 

 

 

If the retailer had found the error and contacted before taking payment saying there has been an error we cant process then fine. We'd move on.

 

But they had reviewed the order, Processed the order taken payment and despatched half of it.

 

 

 

 

Thanks

Matt

Very clear now.

Can you just confirm the value of the order ?

Any chance that you can name the retailer here ?

If they have made a mistake with the price it is their fault and they are legally bound by the law to provide the goods at the price advertised.

You could threaten them with trading standards see if that works?

They have taken the money so they have breached the contract by not sending the goods. As above you have the right to cancel if they have asked for more and can seek to claim back the difference. What they disclaim can be ignored as it has nothing to do with your rights that you can still enforce.

http://www.topbrandbathrooms.com/terms-amp-conditions/i3

 

Put your complaint in writing to the H/O , get a name and establish a contact. I'm not familiar with Sage Pay but have a look to see if they have a dispute resolution service. They really shouldn't need telling or advising that they are in the wrong and have made a mistake in this case. You still have your rights under your credit card for equal/several liability if they fail to refund as the sum total was over £100 regardless of how much you paid on the card.
