question about ebay postage payment

9 replies
Found 12th May 2010
A guy from the USA bought an item from me of ebay despite me not having set a price for international postage. he requested a total but I was away for a few days, so I couldnt reply. after a few days he decided to set his own postage, which was more than domestic but it actually cost me £7 more than he payed to post. Is there anything I can do to get the difference back?

So you've actually already posted the item, before querying this with him?

yes unfortunately, i was sending a load of items at the same time so i only noticed when I looked at my receipt. stupid i know.:oops:

Probably should have emailed him explaining you'd been away and that the postage was more then told him you were going to refund the payment and send a revised invoice with the correct postage on it.

To be honest George you shouldn't have sent it until you got paid the correct ammount.

EDIT - sorry just seen your reply above. Think it will be difficult now but you could try taking it up with Ebay & see what they say. Good luck :thumbsup:

no there isnt and you just have to hope he doesnt claim he aint received it

You should have refunded the payment straight away from paypal then sent him an invoice for the correct amount but to be honest I would send nothing overseas anymore. There are enough scammers buying stuff in this country without the added problem of not being able to get to them when they tell you it never arrived...

Just explain you were away and mention it cost you more than you thought and could he pay the difference most of the time ebayers are quite reasonable were not all scammers and crooks you know!!

I've sent him a message asking him to meet me in the middle and add a fiver. I haven't told him I've already posted so hopefully he'll do the decent thing.:thumbsup:
