Online sellers keeping mum on price tag
KUALA LUMPUR: Online sellers on social media are still keeping mum on the prices of their products.
Checks on Facebook showed that there were sellers who were adamant in not displaying the price tags, and being coy on details of the products they were selling.
Some would even put ludicrous price tags, just for the sake of having one, like RM123,456 for jars of macaroons.
Buyers would need to approach the seller privately to get the actual price of their products.
Buyers can get anything, from homemade roti jala to getting their cat spayed, all from advertisements on social media, but sellers seemed to shy away from announcing their products’ selling price to the public.
The New Straits Times yesterday front-paged an exclusive interview with Domestic, Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry enforcement director Datuk Mohd Roslan Mahayudin, who said the ministry was going after online traders, including those on social media, who did not list prices and other details of their products and services.
“We are fully enforcing this law after having relaxed it to allow traders to adjust accordingly,” Roslan said.
