There was a recent purchase I made where the website price was inaccurate and I paid the additional to complete the order.
Communication seemed to be an issue since I had to call to check the status of the paid order to discover that I'd "underpaid" several days later, and that the listed price was inaccurate. After, there were several calls to check the status of the order. It shipped yesterday.

I'm not dissatisfied enough with the transaction to claim that an AP order isn't advisable, all that said. I grant leniency, and have a good understanding of the struggles of maintaining solvency, therefore I offer this as only a factual account of my transaction experience, and nothing more.
Edited: I spoke with Tim at All Pro (I believe) and I will say that when I called, he may not have been able to answer immediately, but he did get an answer, and promptly call me back.
