Not being able to see the price of items in the store if they are sold out? Answered

Is it just me, or are you not able to see what the price of the items in the Instructables store that are sold out.
(Unless it's just because of the "legal review".)

Anyways, if it is true, and you cannot see the price, I'd recommend adding that feature if possible.

Thanks,
Me

I do agree, it would be nice to see those prices, but they very possibly won't come back the same price. For example, they were selling a product that ending up costing more to make than they were sold for. My guess is that once the store is up and going, the prices and stock shouldn't be an issue again.

Hopefully, when the store is back up and running, the prices will be available even when the product is out of stock.

Why do you want to see the price of an item you can't get? Much of what the site carries in the store comes from individuals and not a large company with mass production capabilities. The number of products these individuals can make or order is limited. The cost of materials is always changing so the items need to be priced accordingly for any profit to be made.

I would like to see the price, even if I cannot currently (or ever) purchase it, so that I could plan my purchase (or to not purchase).
Even though the price of items fluctuates, shouldn't the old price still be available for us to base the approximate price on?

Everything but the shirts and mug instructables designed themselves is listed as out of stock due to legal reasons. They were also having issues with the price point on several of the items being below cost before the legal review. The combination of those two issues means they probably have intentionally removed the prices from the items since they're not actually for sale and may never be sold there again.

Thanks for the reply.
I am aware of the legal review, although I would still wish it would be possible to have information on the products, still.
