Fnac ordered to deliver discounted Huawei flagship to buyers following computer glitch

Thursday 27 February 2020 | 14:25 CET | News
Spain's ministry of consumer affairs has ordered French retailer Fnac to honour the orders it received for a Huawei flagship smartphone it erroneously offered at 75 percent less than its RRP on 27 October 2019, reports El Pais. The retailer blamed a computer glitch on its website for the error, which led to a Huawei P30 Pro 128GB handset being offered for EUR 124.90 to Fnac members and for EUR 139.90 to non-members compared to a RRP of EUR 699.90. By the time it removed the offer, some 12,911 orders had been placed.
