So, I purchased a bag on eBay in the US on September 22nd, and paid on the 24th (after informing the seller immediately upon winning I had to wait 48 hours for a transfer to my credit card to happen). I received an email on September 23rd asking if I could pay yet (which I couldn't as I explained in my first email to the seller). I then paid promptly on the 24th when my transfer went through. So far, so good. The seller left me feedback on 4th October, saying "good job". Extremely descriptive as you can see. As of today, I haven't yet received the bag, but I haven't been too concerned as there has been a postal strike in the UK since Thursday so it's quite possibly waiting for me at the post office. Then today, I received an email from the seller saying "would you leave positive feedback thx". I emailed them back and said that I would be happy to provide feedback, however the bag hadn't yet been received. I then also asked what date it was posted and if they perhaps had a tracking number they could provide so I could keep an eye out for it. I also mentioned that we had had a postal strike so I was hoping it was just caught up in transit. This is the reply I got! "sent the bag Oct 1..priority int'l 32.00 plus insurance8.70 plus custom form #cp055398879US...plus customs postage 28.00..hope this helps the difference if at all possible was 12.70 extra ..can you put that into my paypal account thx...I had to pay that extra...appreciated." I paid $30 in shipping, and I'd asked prior to bidding how much shipping would cost. I know it's only $12.70, but surely it's the principle! Also, if the bag had been posted sooner rather than 6 days after I'd paid I'm sure I would have had the bag by now and could have left feedback. This particularly grates me because the seller was completely on top of me to pay, even though I had explained why I kept a separate credit card just for eBay and it would take 48 hours for a transfer to happen. And I got "good job" as feedback....c'mon, surely they could have written at least double that! They only have around 70 feedbacks, so it's not like they're a massive power seller who has 50 rounds of feedback to write each day What do you guys think? Should I just pay the cash for karma purposes?
