Customer-A & Customer B are into joint venture.
Customer-A's manager directly interacts with us on a product.

Customer-A is a long time one, so he pays only 20% of the product's cost.
Customer-A introduces Customer-B.

Since they are in JV, I assumed, everything is transparent.
Over a conversation, Customer-B asks, how much we charge for Product-X for customer-A.
I say the discounted cost. i.e $200. (When actual cost is $1000)

Just after a day, Customer-A dials and warns me not to disclose the discount details.
He says it's a disgrace for their brand to pay such a low amount for the product/service,
(but he wouldn't pay the $1000 as well Hmmm | :| )

He wants to project to customer-B that he's paying $1000, the actual cost.

But, now that I had already shared the details to customer-B.
What a mess! D'Oh! | :doh:

Now I'm just keeping quiet. Should I go back to Customer-B & say the shared info was wrong.
or should I dial back customer-A and say it's too late to correct this.

(Please excuse the unprofessional data sharing. This is how things working here in mini-start-ups, since we tend to be customer friendly, we end up getting roughed up like this. But personally both these customers people are nice behaving)
