Default EBAY Shipping Question

I recently bought 5 1948 Bowman cards on Ebay. The total of the cards was $77. When I received my invoice the bill was $165. This person wanted to charge me $88 in shipping. I got back on the auction and carefully checked the costs and he/she is charging $14.90 shipping per card. I have emailed them on three occasions asking to combine shipping and send me a new invoice. I have had no luck. I have perfect feedback on EBAY and have never not paid for an item. I wondering your thoughts on if I should not pay and leave bad feedback regarding shipping.

I wouldn't pay. That's ridiculous shipping.

He can't neg you anyways. You can do one of those ebay agreements where both sides agree not to complete the transaction and he gets his fees refunded and can list them again.

I wouldn't pay either since he can't leave negative feedback. The only side effect will be a non-paying strike placed against you. Like the previous post, If the member will not combine shipping, see if he/she would do a mutual withdrawal so that they can get their fees back. On a side note, I will usually email the seller to inquire on combined shipping prior to bidding to avoid this type of problem.

Good luck.

I should have checked with them in the first place. I even told them in one my emails that I was willing to pay $14.90 shipping for all the cards. This is even outrageous but since I didn't read closely enough I was willing to bite the bullet. Unfortunately I still have not heard from them.

Default must be one of those Isoldit places

I once bought about 7-8 E210's on ebay, all listed singly, by an ISoldIt on ebay shop. For ground shipping the charge was around $100.....I called them and argued and got no where. I got the cards at a great price so went ahead and paid it. This was in the old system where they could retaliate so I just didn't give them feedback. With todays system they would have gotten 7-8 negatives and 1 on every shipping remarks......They gave me some song and dance about it was their system blah blah blah......it was BS if you ask me...but I did get about 7-8 seperate boxes....regards

ps...on this one, if they stick to their guns, I would blast them (and I never do that)

some sellers will charge $14.90 and then stick the card in an evelope with a single stamp on it.


for that high of a shipping charge. I would expect 2 day delivery, with insurance, gift wrapped, and a bow on top !!!!

For that shipping price, I would expect the seller to send them to either PSA or SGC for grading with a return shipping to the winner

I'd contact eBay and complain BIG time. No way on this planet am I paying that incredible shipping fee.
