ebay purchase - what was going on here?
Bought a £70 book from an online bookstore for £20 plus £5 postage. Brand new but damaged cover.
The invoice only came to £20 though.
So, paid that.
Got an email through my normal email account (not ebay message) asking for the £5 postage charge.
I replied saying sure, no problem, guess you forgot to add it to the invoice total. If you could just submit the request via ebay PM and I'll pay the fiver immediately.
Now received a message saying you're not having the book, here's a refund.
Aren't I legally entitled to it? I'll never find it at that price new again.
Why did he email through personal emails?
What's the (seeming) problem with asking for the postage money through ebay - he doesn't pay commission on postage to ebay does he?
He has 100% positive feedback and the message I sent him about asking for the fiver via ebay was very polite.
