View Full Version : shipping/difficult seller question.

Got a seller trying to yank me around.

He's shipping a skystriker, whale, and Moray to me and trying to tell me it's going to cost me $60 + $30 packing material to ship. Yes, I know that I should have asked first blah blah blah but I didn't think someone would try to rip me off THIS bad. I emailed him telling him that would NOT be acceptable and gave him several different calculated shipping options based on the size and weight of the package (ups, fedex, usps) none of which exceded $33. I also told him that if it came to it, to ship each individually since I know they each cost about $10 to ship. And I stated there was no way in hell I was paying $30 for packing material.

My question is, how the hell do I deal with this? I just have a feeling he's going to write me back and tell me that no, I'm wrong, etc.

What did the auctions say?

So $60 shipping + $30 materials?

WHOA! This is interesting. I knew that no shipping was listed for the auction, but I went to get the exact wording and found this:

"Seller will pay shipping cost."

...and this is domestic shipping, too.
