so there was this GREAT handbag i wanted to buy but the seller didn't list charges for shipping to Canada on it.

when i emailed, she said it would be $15.90, which i thought was pretty reasonable for the size of the package.

so i bid on the bag and i won it.

and i got home just now and she's sent the PayPal invoice and charged me $22.00 for shipping!

i'm SOOOOO angry!

i sent her an email asking what's with the extra $6 and she said that $15.90 was "just an estimate". well, no, i have her original email to me and she didn't use the word "estimate" in there at all.

eBay won't get involved because they tell you in advance that you are responsible for asking about shipping, which i did....

    I bought something recently. . . well, actually I bought it from a second seller. I contacted the first seller to ask what the shipping was. Turned out the shipping charges were really reasonable. I don't like to bid till the last minute because I think if you bid early then someone knows you are interested, and if they are too, they bid the amount up too high. Anyway, back to my first story. I thought the shipping was reasonable and meant to bid at the last minute. The next day I thought "shoot I forgot to bid on the dish I wanted on ebay." Luckily, someone else had one for about the same price and same shipping. The first seller probably wondered with such reasonable shipping why I never bid. Was definitely a senior moment.

    i don't know... eBay did make changes so that sellers can't retaliate against buyers who leave negative feedback...

    this person had one neutral and all the rest were positive, so i thought she'd be safe to buy from.

    bleh!

    but i really do want the handbag...

    :lol:

    that's still a better deal than when I tired to sell my laptop and the winner was from "nigeria" three times.
