If you order a product from a store and they give you a receipt showing the product and total price, do they have to give you the product at that price?

I ordered some products online from a store and got a receipt back showing the products i ordered and the price I paid. Ahe products have not shipped yet. is the company legally obligated to give me the products at the price stated on the receipt? and can they legally cancel the order without my consent even after I have been given the receipt?

If you have ordered and paid for product online and have the receipt showing the product and price paid, under the laws of all states in this country you are entitled to receive the items purchased at such a price.

The only way the company can legally cancel the order is if it runs out of the product and if it does, it must offer you a similar product at the agreed upon price.
