Amazon customers buy hundreds of products for 1 pound due to technical glitch

AmazonLondon, Dec 14 : Amazon customers have bought hundreds of products for one pound after a piece of software used by retailers at the company went wrong.

Some firms that use the software RepricerExpress said that there was a risk of going bankrupt because it had resulted in a huge loss of money, reported Sky News.

The software is designed to keep firms competitive by repricing items of stock so they are cheaper than others in the market.

Hundreds of items were sold at a fraction of their normal prices on Friday between 7pm to 8pm.

One of the sellers, Judith Blackford of Kiddymania said that she could be forced out of business as a result of the technical glitch. (ANI)
