Advertised for $23 is now $40Jan 27, 2015

Four hours ago I received a email from you saying "Only 10 seats at $23USD remaining", but now that I click the link and come here, it is $40. What's the mistake?
Thanks for your attention,
Ramiro

Hello Ramiro,

Those that purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, and those that confirm participation later or last minute, may likely get to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low. Therefore the message you could see informed that only 10 seats are available at $23USD and then the price will be changed.

Hope this helps and clarifies.

Please let me know if you have any question and feel free to submit a support request http://www.proz.com/support/ if you need any assistance. Thanks!

My bests,
Helen
