I sold 2 pair of jeans in a bundle on ebay, best offer of $60 to a lady in Canada. I've posted internationally by registered post before so I quoted the normal price which is $30. I did say this was tentative but based on Australia Posts website quote.

When her e-cheque cleared, I sent them with my postman on tuesday but have received them back today because the postage is actually $44.50. 2 pairs of jeans pushes the weight up to 1.4kgs hence the price dif.

Should I email the purchaser on ebay and ask for the difference or cop it on the chin? Its $15.00 difference. Not really sure what I should do....

Thanks :thumbsup

No you shouldn't ask her for the difference because you quoted her $30 and you should stick to $30.
IMO of course.
I would suck it up and pay the extra and never mention anything to the buyer.

the terms on the auction page are binding for BOTH parties.

you expect the buyer to follow theirs, you have to follow yours.

this would have been even more embarrassing if they had arrived to your buyer Postage-Due!

No worries, this is what I thought too. :thumbsup

Idalis, A.Post won't send if we haven't paid enough luckily, because you're right, I would have been dreadfully embarassed.

Thanks girls.
