Apple under fire over Kiwi’s cut-price order

Apple will represent itself at a Dispute Tribunal in New Zealand next month after a mistake on their website allowed an order of $35 for as much as $1600 worth of products.

Waikato man Adam Crouchley pounced on the error after discovering Apple's heavily discount products last month.

A number of products had been mistakenly price significantly below their retail price, including an item worth $89 for 83 cents, his queries were confirmed by an Apple representative before he placed the order.

But after racking up an order the tech giant cancelled the deal, recognising its mistake and intercepting many of the deliveries before they reached Crouchley.

Crouchley has filed a claim with the Disputes Tribunal, and received a date for his hearing at Te Awamutu District Court.

“I’m a bit nervous about it,” Crouchley told TVNZ.

“I’d imagine they’d probably want to settle before we get to that date.”

“They may want to prove a point and show up but it can’t go too wrong against me.”
