Retailer Fights Against Ps5 Scalpers By Mercilessly Canceling Orders
Right now, people or groups who are buying up PS5 consoles and reselling them at a marked up price are a huge problem. From what we’ve noticed, a lot of these scalpers are trying to sell the consoles at almost double the retail price that online retailers are selling the console at, and are netting a pretty decent profit out of it.
That being said, a report from Kotaku has revealed that over in South Korea, one retailer by the name Gamewoori is trying to fight against these scalpers by taking a no-mercy approach and outright cancelling orders if they are found to be bought for the intention of resale. According to the retailer’s Instagram, they claim that if they find any evidence that one of their customers is trying to resell their pre-order at marked up prices, they will cancel their orders, even if payment has already been made (presumably they will refund these orders).
