    Default eBay whoops...

    I need some experienced ebay advice... I made a big big mistake. Recently I listed a fox Capri spoiler from an old RS that I've had sitting around. Good news... it sold for about $50. Bad news? I somehow estimated the shipping at $30. Actual shipping cost? $90 - $200. Any ideas what I can do? I AM NOT paying to have this thing shipped.

    Contact the guy who bought it,tell him that you made a mistake on shipping,and give him the option of paying more for shipping,or giving him a refund.

    Generally, UPS is the cheapest way to ship from here (Ohio) unless the box or the item is oversized. Then it's cheaper to go USPS. Just my observation.

    Yeah, I dunno wtf I was thinking. I listed it with $25.50 est shipping USPS and $35 for UPS. UPS lady quoted me $90 because it's oversized.

    I don't think the guy is going to want to pay the $90 for the shipping, so hopefully he'll agree to a full refund. Ugh... every time I tell myself that I'm not listing anymore big items, I do.

    Check with your local Greyhound Bus station. The buyer will have to agree to go to one to pick it up but the bumper cover I bought from a seller in MO didn't cost that much to get to FL that way....

    Well, I sent an email as follows:

    I'm afraid I've got some unfortunate news regarding the spoiler. Somehow I must've miscalculated the shipping costs because when I stopped at the post office today, they quoted me shipping at nearly $200. I realized then that UPS is usually cheaper for such large boxes (the box is close to 60" tall and 15" by 15". But unfortunately UPS wanted nearly around $100 as well. That being said I can offer you a full refund plus 5% on top of your total cost (price + shipping) to cover the paypal fees on your end. That's the only alternative I have to paying the much higher-than-anticipated shipping costs. I'm hoping this unfortunate mishap doesn't sour your eBay experience. Let me know which course of action you'd like to take.
    What MEGA-ULTRA-SUPER fvcking SUCKS is that I can give this guy a full refund and then some and he could ****ing still NEG me and poof, there goes my new found 100%.

    If you offered a full refund I cant see him doing that... If he does, he is a dick to begin with.
