Doesn’t this Facebook ads say that you can get a Samsung Galaxy s3 for just Rs. 417.99 on eBay?,well, out of curiosity I clicked the ad and I was taken to the product listing page where the same Samsung Galaxy S3 was listed for $417.99 (Rs.25000 approx.)
This is clearly a technical issue, when a product from eBay.com is advertised to a Facebook user from India, the price should be displayed in local currency, but unfortunately, in this ad eBay/Facebook knew that I am from India, so converted the $ symbol to Rs. but failed to convert the currency value. To avoid this issue eBay could have shown a product from it’s local version eBay.in
This may be a technical glitch or a deliberate black hat marketing trick, whatever it is, this eBay ad is just misleading and it should be fixed. Write your thought in the comments below.
