Last night I won an auction for a Stormtrooper. It ended for a very decent price of 5.50. The seller listed FREE Shipping.
It did say in the item dscription that shipping would be three dollars. Well, seeing how we all know people are idiots and list incorrect information in descriptions all the time, I didn't pay any mind to it. Again the listing said FREE shipping.
Item ended, I pay instantly. Today I get a message from the seller. The free shipping was listed in error. I need three dollars, or we can cancel the transaction.
I sent him a message, he sent back a reply. I called ebay, explained the situation, and guess what? They sided with the SELLER..... telling me that mistakes happen, and I can either pay the three dollars or cancel the sale!
Another message to the seller, and at least we settled on 1.50 for shipping..... but still. WTF??
If it were me, and I made a "mistake" and listed an item for free shipping, I would have just sucked it up, took the hit and moved on. I don't know how you can accidentally list an item for free shipping in the first place. I guess compared to other horror stories this is just a minor inconvenience. And it really is. But It frustrated me enough to have to vent about it a bit. Anyone else ever get this from a seller, AFTER the item has been paid for?
