Default COMC question

So I did a search, saw a card that I had been wanting to get for a while where the seller seemed to have almost doubled his previous asking price, but it now said it was 70% off and was now like 15 bucks.

I was willing to get it for that, I sent some Paypal to the site, went back into buy it, and now the 70% off is gone and its 66% more than the previous asking price was at

So now even the 50% offer is way more than I was willing to spend as the 70% off price was about 50% of his previous asking price

Anyone know why this may have happened? Did he take away his sale in the 2 minutes it took me to put some money into my account? I find it hard to believe the timing of that

A seller may change the price of their cards at any time.

I fully understand that

Just seems weird that he had this card listed at $40 for 2-3 weeks, then lowered it to $30 about a month ago up until the last time I looked a couple days ago

I then go in 10 minutes ago and it's listed at $50, but 70% off, so marked down to $15

Then in the two minutes it took for me to put money into my account the discount goes away and it's now listed at the full $50????

Just seems weird with the timing and prices, felt to me like it was more some glitch in the system that the discount disappeared

Are you suggesting there is a conspiracy?

Not at all, I was wondering if anyone else had this happen to them, if someone knew there was something going on with their system maybe.

Just seems unlikely to me that a card that has been on the site for a couple months and has slowly been lowered in price would be on sale and then two minutes later its not only not on sale anymore, but almost 4 times the asking price it was at two minutes earlier

All the more reason I wish you could message sellers on there

Upon further review, this may have been a case of horrible timing, I think the seller might have had the 70% off across the board and then took it off, as he has his cards priced horribly. But if you take 70% off of them, they're not the worst I've ever seen, so I think there actually is a chance he just removed a 70% off sale but not changed any prices yet
