E-commerce - Is it user-friendly to not provide the option to filter by price?

2 grammer, spelling, removed unrequired closing salutation

I'm currently working on an e-commerce website which salessells magazines, books, subscriptions, and trainingstraining materials.

When the user searches for a product, filter options are provided to refine his search. I was recently told that the stakeholders want to get rid of the price filter because they think that the user is not the person who will pay for these products, his company will pay for him. However, they have no idea how the users use their website because they didn't get feedback from the users in the first place.

Thanks for your help.Is their reasoning sound? Should we not display the price as a filterable option?
