New to the site and just starting to use the Wantlist feature. Maybe I'm not doing it right but when I see comics from my Wantlist listed for sale, it says how many are available and gives me a price for the lowest one. But then when I click the comic, the webpage that comes up doesn't have the same price listed. This frustrated me because I saw a comic I wanted for $0.99 but when I checked the inventory the lowest price listed was $3.99. I made sure to see if perhaps there was a lower graded copy available for cheaper in the pulldown menu but nothing. I also checked to see if there maybe the low price was part of a lot but again nothing. Or maybe the site takes into account a seller having a sale? I even emptied my cache and there was no change.

So is this a bug or am I missing something? I was so excited to see the low price only to be let down when I found out it wasn't actually available for that price.

If you have seen them on the main CCL homepage under the "From my Wishlist", yes it's a bug of sorts. Unfortunately, when a seller closes their store, if they do not clear out their inventory before closing a store the CCL system will still show it for sale on the homepage.

And yes, it is frustrating. I've gotten excited to see issues I've been looking for that show up with a great price only to find them not actually for sale.

This has gotten less and less of an occurrence though as CCL staff have been manually cleaning up the inventory of closed stores.

Thanks for the answer. I was beginning to think it was a way to draw people in with the old bait and switch. Hopefully I don't come across any more of these phantom listings, I might cry.
