General OT question (like most), what can I do as a buyer if a seller won't ship me the item? Remember winning a Code 3 collectible for an insanely good price (UK seller), but after bid the seller wanted to bump up shipping costs from something like $60/70 to $200, which I of course could not at all agree with. What can you do? From what I've read on the Web seller has all rights here and Ebay can't do poo.
You should ask to see the shipping quote.
It’s their fault they didn’t properly price their shipping beforehand. It happens to everyone though. I own it and pay out of pocket, which sellers should do. Unless of course it’s some extreme circumstance.
Maybe you can negotiate? If it is really a lot higher than expected then offer to pay half the difference if you really want it.
Otherwise there’s really no way to force them to ship it.
It’s possible they got cold feet after it didn’t sell for as much as they wanted. That’s on them for not taking precautions though. In which case they probably won’t budge.
