See these two screenshots for two different collections. Notice the price to buy individually is more than the discounted, bundled price. I am afraid to buy anything because I don't trust the pricing system. Can someone explain the problem?

There seems to be some confusion or errors in the process and calculations and the way things are displayed.  I noticed the same thing reported here.

It may all be explainable if you pick apart the details for each scenario, but it seems something is broken .. at least it is not transparent.

Like you, I'm a little wary of the information on the pages.

In the "Total value if sold separately" area, we display the current sale price of the remaining library resources you need to purchase to complete the collection.

Sometimes individual resources are on sale for a better deal than what you would get by purchasing the collection.

For example, if a collection was made up of 10 books that sold separately for $10 each, but was priced as a collection at $80, you would be saving 20% by purchasing the collection.

If you needed to purchase only 1 remaining volume in this scenario, your Dynamic Price for the collection would be in the $8 range. 

However, if that particular title alone was on sale for 35% off, you could purchase it individually for $6.50.

The system makes it easy to understand what the lowest cost purchasing option is.

You'll see this happen more often when we're having significant promotions, like we are currently with March Madness.

Sale purchase of $ 6.50 would likely reduce collection dynamic price by $ 8 (so save on initial purchase plus save on subsequent collection).
