Usually when sorting parts by price at a particular quantity (e.g. 1000 pcs), the pricing does not completely get sorted by price. Often there are much higher priced parts stuck in the middle the list:
This issue has been going on for at least a year, and I’m starting to wonder if is an intentional feature from Digi-Key like Amazon’s “Sponsored” advertising which inserts advertisements for more expensive products in the middle of a list of items sorted by price.
My expectation is that if I’m trying to find parts which are the least expensive at 1,000 pcs, I should see the parts sorted by price at that quantity. I’d be happy to provide more detail on either my expectations or the problem if you’d like.
Is this a feature, a misunderstanding of how it was designed to work, or a bug?
