Australian Online shops will charge more to customers who use Internet Explorer 7
Sure many of us carry out online shopping, either for convenience or because the product is more convenient. But can you imagine that by using a very old browser have a purchase fee? As this is already happening in Australia’s Kogan Technologies with Internet Explorer 7, which was forced to take this drastic decision, since the use of Microsoft’s browser means that workers have to be constantly adapting the site.
The charge is 6.8% extra for anyone who uses the Internet Explorer 7 poorly weighted to shop at this online store. This will pay the costs associated with the extra hours they must spend the team of designers and web programmers to make the site friendly and compatible with IE 7 in this case.
Thus, those who access from this moment Kogan with this browser will be alerted with a pop up that will have to pay an additional value of your purchase if you purchase any of their products with IE 7. So if the user goes ahead and decides to use this medium to buy will be responsible for this extra will be applied to final invoice.
How about this measure?
