It all depends how automated your order fulfillment system is. And what information the people involved have.

If all the person in charge of completing a work order to fulfill the customer order only knows that Customer X needs to have Product Y shipped for delivery on Tuesday, then no one would know about the billing error for a while.

If the error is smaller, say a $20 item for $5, the error might not be caught unless there is a sudden surge in orders.

This kind of thing could get ugly.
