So I recently purchased a card off eBay. I made an offer for what I thought the card was worth (being it is my PC guy and I am familiar with the general market for his cards). The seller, who had it listed pretty high, came down to meet me at half their original asking price, which might still be slightly overpaying, had the card been at auction. Anyway, I was happy enough. The card cost me $6.50, with an additional $2.66 shipping (the standard paypal shipping amount for a padded envelop). I received the card yesterday, shipped fairly quickly, which was nice. The card arrived in a plain white envelop, well packaged enough considering. Luckily, the card was not damaged. I get it, didn't make as much as you wanted off the card itself, so throw it in a PWE, slap one stamp on and shove it in the mail...profit an extra $2. I don't agree with it, but I understand why someone might do that.
Regarding feedback, what are your thoughts? I think a flat negative might be too harsh. Neutral perhaps? I am not sure what to do. To make sure there wasn't just an honest mistake, I reached out to the seller. Just letting him/her know what had happened, and that I was a smidge confused about the shipping price vs what I received. Asked for perhaps a small refund of some of the shipping costs. I think I sent a very kind and non accusatory message. Of course, feedback will depend on the response, if any, but just wanted to ask the community's thoughts. Am I making too big a deal out of this? Should I just let it slide? Leave positive feedback (and perhaps just fewer stars regarding shipping price)?
Appreciate everyone's input!
