US online retail giant Amazon announced Wednesday that it had achieved historic sales during its annual super-sale "Prime Day" operation. The Seattle company said it sold more than 175 million products in 18 countries to customers on the Prime loyalty program on Monday and Tuesday.
Is that a bug? But some American media, which specialize in new technology news, ensure that the Jeff Bezos site is wrong in labeling dozens of products in the Photography category, reports our colleague from La Voix du Nord. This equipment, sometimes very special, is intended for the North American market. A site that specializes in good offers, SlickDeals.net, first sold packages including Sony a6000 and 16-50mm lenses which cost $ 94.50 while it was worth $ 550.
A sign that it might be a bug, some Premium customers have benefited and seen promotions, others have never been able to access the same discount, according to the French newspaper La Voix du Nord. Quickly, photography enthusiasts have started looking for cheap items on the site. They finally issued an offer that was hard to match. Amazon does sell Canon EF 800mm f / 5.6L IS telephoto, usually offered for $ 13,000, always at a very good price of $ 94 and 48 cents. Web users managed to identify labeling errors on the Fujifilm X100F ($ 1,299), Canon EOS R ($ 2,000), Sony a7 ($ 2,000) and Sony a9 ($ 5,500). Obviously this discovery triggered the madness of comments and traffic on the offer.
