    Hey All,

    2 nights ago I won 3 auctions on ebay. The auctions had no pics and the description was very vague. I figured that I would take a chance and buy them, since there was no other bidders.




    So after I won these, I sent the seller a message asking for a total shipping amount, and also told him that I lived an hour and a half from him.

    Payment instructions at the bottom also says must be paid within 24hrs or it will be second chanced.

    I hadn't responded to my message yet, so yesterday and I sent another message asking him if he had received my first message (sometimes they dont go through).

    Well, still no response. I don't know if he's ignoring me, and he didn't want to sell them for what they went for or what.

    I do know that I'm not going to pay $40.00 for shipping, when it should be $15.00 at the most. Especially when he only lives an hour and a half from me.

    Anyways, I thought I would share this.

    If you hav gone to the payment option and officially asked for a total then you have done all you can do. The worst that can happen is that he relists them. At least you'll know he wanted the huge shipping charge to inflate his sale.
