"sticker shock" can get you when you least expect it. I had ordered a player and paid for it and postage, four days later the seller requested 128 gbpounds more postage. I should have held him to his original price and the postage was stated on his ebay site. However it was a christmas present and I did not want to argue as it may delay the present getting there on time. Suprise however when it then supposedly took another week to post, tracking number was invalid, 30 kilogram parcel untraceable. Seller said he had email with tracking number but was never able to provide it. Ebay refunded me the cost of the player but not extra postage. Then the seller said he got player back in the mail. I thought , here we go, lets see if you can prove that. The seller had caught himself out as he would have to prove he got it back in the mail. He was then unable to provide proof of this i.e packing slips, photos, whatever. He was saying the player went from portugal to australia and back to portugal again, but without a trace of it ever happening. Yes, "sticker shock" can get you when you least expect it.
