Walmart Stores Inc. says a ‘‘technical error’’ caused certain products to be priced absurdly low or high on its website Wednesday morning.

The company said late Wednesday that it had resolved the issue and Walmart.com is now operating normally.

‘‘We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers,’’ said Ravi Jariwala, a spokesman for Walmart’s online operations.

Earlier Wednesday, shoppers took to Twitter to cite ridiculously low prices like treadmills for $33.16 and Hewlett-Packard LCD monitors for $8.85.

Jariwala said that the company is notifying customers who ordered these items that their orders have been canceled and they’ll be refunded in full.

In addition, it will send customers a $10 e-gift card that can be used toward future purchases at its stores or on its website.
