Here's how people reacted:

An individual wrote, "Yes it is, and those pricing depends on how frequent you order. For infrequent users, they give discounted price on some products to attract the users, but only on first usage from that outlet. For example, if you order it second time, that discounted price will be gone."

A second said, "The first user has put the last packet from the stock in the cart, so for the second user, they'll procure from Blinkit. Hence the cost difference."

"This is because IOS and android has different apps. Sometime they can fetch different stores which are almost at equal proximity to your location. And depending on stock availability at a particular store they adjust the price," commented a third.

A fourth shared, "I think it is inventory based discount.Maybe they just had one last in stock with discounted price and the next onwards in stock was on full price. It happens."
