The full extent of the glitch was confirmed this morning when data showed a total of 38,575 UFO devices were purchased for $9.90 USD - costing the company more than $10 million USD in lost revenue, in just two hours.

The glitch, which affected the foreo.com site globally, is thought to have started around 12:30 p.m. PST on Friday, Nov. 29 when an insurge of irregular traffic caused the site to crash for the first time.

Assuming it was Black Friday madness, the company’s tech team repaired the fault but failed to notice the UFO mishap, leaving the option still open to purchase.

By approximately 2:00 p.m. PST, a second site crash initiated a further investigation and with session users hitting unprecedented levels the fault was escalated by FOREO’s global tech team working the nightshift. Social media channels were flooded with messages about the UFO at $9.90 USD as fear of missing out syndrome appeared to have taken effect around the world.

Around one hour and 20 minutes into the glitch, 20 UFOs per second were being purchased across the globe on foreo.com.

By midnight, the glitch was resolved and rectified, and it was understood to be human error listing the UFO device for $9.90 USD.

"It was an error on our part, however, seeing the number of orders placed per minute is a testament that our customers have their eyes on the brand and our innovations," said Beki Hoxha, General Manager, FOREO North America. "This opened the door for new customers to understand who FOREO really is and we are happy to honor everyone's purchases."

In total, the FOREO glitch is thought to have lasted around 120 minutes, generated 38,575 sales of UFO at a 96% discount, which has cost the brand upwards of $10 million USD. The usual retail price of the UFO is $279 USD.

Any customers who have questions regarding the error or the status of their order may reach out to the Customer Care team at FOREO.com.
