Ebay Question....

So I won the auction on ebay the other night so I asked the guy for the shipping price and I think the price the guy quoted me is ridiculous. What kind of rights do I have here? Am I hooped? Hes trying to charge me 15 bucks to ship me a DVD. With the price I won it for, plus shipping, I can walk into the local Futureshop and but this thing for about 4 bucks cheaper ! What should I do? He had no shipping details posted with the item.

Harry, I'm droppin' the hammer

Re: Ebay Question....

Tell him to send it USPS Priority Mail, with insurance. Shouldn't cost any more than $5-6. UPS could run $8-10, depending on the distance. But $15 sounds kinda high, even with packing materials factored in.

What's the link to the auction?

Yeah, but I just had a jacket in a big box shipped for 13 bucks from the US.

...or how they make up for eBay fees and/or the 'labor' involved in selling/packaging/etc.

Not unusual to find $0.99 Buy It Now DVDs etc. with $15 shipping charges. eBay takes a cut of the $0.99, but not the $15. Voila.
