An Amazon seller was found selling a plastic bucket for Rs 25,999. Hilariously, plastic buckets in India sell in the range of Rs 399 – Rs 599 in India. Apart from the plastic bucket, another seller was found selling two plastic mugs for Rs 10,000. Note that these prices were listed after applying the discounts.
The plastic bucket was originally listed for Rs 35,990 but it was available for Rs 25,999 at a discounted rate. Similarly, the plastic mugs were originally listed for Rs 22,000 and with the 55 per cent discount, their price dropped to Rs 9,914. Fortunately, the prices were removed from the above mentioned products page and the listing showed ‘Currently unavailable’.
The pricing, of course, is way higher than what it should be and we think that this could be a glitch from e-commerce platform or seller end. Most likely, it is an error from the seller as it is them who list the price, details, and product images. However, this came soon to the attention of internet users and they started trolling the e-commerce giant, Amazon for this. Here are some of the top hilarious replies we found.

This isn’t the first time such a thing has happened. Since the goof-up is common among sellers on multiple e-commerce platforms, there have been many such instances of extremely high prices.
