I bought 4 Queen items from someone who want to sell his on ebay:

QUEEN The Show Must Go On New&Wrapped 1 US $5.50 US
Queen "Hot Space" Like New 1 US $0.01 US
Queen "Jazz" 8 Track Tape New & Sealed 1 US $11.01 US
Queen "News Of The World" 8 Track Tape Like New 1 US $2.25 US

Shipping and handling via USPS Airmail Letter Post:
(includes any seller handling fees) US $14.00

Total: US $32.77


I paid money by paypal.


After that, he send email to me like this:
Actual cost for shipping to South Korea was $20.00.
Can I ask you to send additional $6 to my account please?


I replied like this:
Really? I think it's too much. Can I see your sending fee receipt please?

He send to me the copy of receipt and answered this:
Please find copy of receipt, and I paid $5 for package.

this is the reciept from him:

Can you show me your opinion whether he is lying or not? Do they pay package fee addtionally, in US?
He lives in New York.

Thanks,

Some ebay sellers ask for more shipping payment when they are unhappy with the outcome of the auction. Mainly the Hot Space CD for only 1 cent was pretty cheap, so he tries to make up for that. If you agreed on 14,50 USD he should send for that money but the package could get easily lost...

If I were you I would pay the extra 6 USD, it's still a good bargain. Paypal costs about 3% when you pay with credit card, so he lost money through the paypal payment, too.


I do not want any google ads here.

That receipt is solely for the shipping costs, and it looks like the amount is $14.50. That's already more than the amount origianlly mentioned. He claims his packaging cost another $5, which is possible but you won't know that until it arrives.

I'd go with what YV said.
