Default Shipping increase after auction closes

Just won an auction for a SP variation David Ortiz 2017 Topps for opening bid for a very low price, and within minutes of the end of the auction, the seller jacked the shipping cost by $40, explaining he couldn't sell it for that low and he thought he had put a reserve on it.
I'm guessing I have to wait three days before opening a case with eBay, right, and then nothing much will happen? Surely won't ever see the card arrive in the mail...

Umm..i didn't think you could do revisions on Ebay within a certain time period. Also, if you had a bid, then for sure he should not be able to change it.

He was able to up the shipping cost from $4.88 to $44.88, sending a note along with it:

"Sorry, I thought I had a reserve on this card, there's no way I can sell it for as low as it went , I sent this , this is the lowest I would take for it. Sorry for the inconveniences."

ok. Was this from a Invoice from the seller....or the You won item from Ebay invoice??
Then, the seller could make/add charges, such as adding sales tax and insurance (as long it was stated) on their invoice.
I would just move on and forget this guy.

I assume this is the listing/guy...and he has it relisted at a much higher price now.

You will never get the cards.....I would report to ebay (via phone call) to avoid a NPB claim. Hopefully ebay will take action against him, or at least advise you as to the best course of action. Then time to neg this newb.

That's the card. He actually also sent a message saying he'd put the shipping back to the original, but then relisted it. What an adventure.

And sorry that I put this in the wrong section, meant to post in modern.

Giving eBay a call now!

That's the plan! But yeah, I'll never see those cards beyond the relisted auction...

I've never been through a process like this with eBay, but a question: would it have been better for me to have paid immediately (without getting the invoice), or would it not have mattered in the long run?

I normally pay within minutes of winning an auction for single cards. Invoices only matter when it comes to combining shipping, IMO.

That was my plan, but I was looking up my eBay Bucks redemption code and he jacked up the shipping before I got to the checkout.
