Yesterday I bought a clothes hanger (tender) on ML because it had a huge discount (40%) and was listed at 19.109 pesos with 2 items left in stock.
This was around noon and the ad said that there was same day free delivery if paying within 2 hours. Well, as life had it, I was unable to get up for a hour or so (read= Serafina was sleeping on my lap), then I went to the PagoFácil to pay. After less than a hour the seller cancelled my purchase with the reason "item out of stock" and the money was credited on my MercadoPago account shortly thereafter. When I clicked on the ad, it was still for sale, just for 32.000 pesos and with 48 units left in stock.
I thought it was a case of too good to be true. Later on, I was still browsing on ML and the same ad popped up, again at 19.109 pesos. So I went, again, to the PagoFácil to pay. It was 6 PM and the purchase this time was not cancelled. I received a notification saying that it would delivered the next day (i.e. today) between 12 and 21.
I don't understand what happened. Perhaps the seller cancelled because it was too late to dispatch it on the same day? Was it because it was raining? I am not sure because it is too big to deliver on a bike, anyway. Any insight is appreciated.
