Question on Ebay sales and seller adding fees after auction’s end??

Can anyone please send me a link from Ebay’s help site to answer this question: Is it legal for a seller to add extra fees into the shipping and handling of an item after the auction has ended? Provided that the listing did not mention any such extra fees?

I know that the seller cannot do this. I remember once seeing it written down and thinking "Why would any seller be that stupid?" Just my luck that it just happened to me. Seller charged a flat rate shipping, with no insurance availible. That’s ok, I didn’t want any….just a delivery confirmation. Now this seller is wanting extra money, which I know is because the items I purchased are worth far more than what she feels they are worth. I got a bargain!

I can’t seem to find it listed anywhere under the help section. I want to send this link to my seller as proof that I do not have to pay these extra fees.

If the seller ask for extra money then what is agree, he or she screw up. It too bad if they didn’t put in the correct amount, they shouldn’t be selling if it a big deal. If the seller complain that the bid was lower than what he or she expected, tough luck because they are going to learn their lesson.

If they refused to ship things then they better give you the refund or file a complaint.

eBay is a semi-legal binding auction. You and seller agree as eBay is a transaction system for auctioning.

    this may help. do not pay extra. that’s not what you agreed on. if they insist, tell them that you are being forced to report them to ebay and then let ebay settle it. hopefully it won’t come to that though. they may just be testing you to see if they can get the extra money out of you. GOOD LUCK!!
