They're watching when we put things in our shopping carts but don't make it through the checkout -- and they're figuring out why we left their websites and how to get us to come back.

Ok, so if I have a retail web site and all I list is the MSRP and my price BUT do not include where the buyer can go to get it cheaper the buyer is "going to call me on it and take their business elsewhere."
"Hello Mr. Store Owner Person. Where can I buy the whatsitdoodle you have for $129.99 with free shipping included at a cheaper price?"
Seriously, you WANT to tell people they can go elsewhere to buy it cheaper than at your site? And this is supposed to make you successful?
1) If you don't tell me, I'll take my business elsewhere.
2) If you do tell me, I'll go there to buy because it was cheaper.
Please show me a web site or any retailer doing this. I'd like to check back with them in a few months and see how their sales are doing.
