Well, that's going to be an interesting one... Earlier in this thread I mentioned my fruitless attempts to contact TC Sounds. The main reason I desperately tried to contact them was because I was worried about the shipping costs. You see, when I ordered the drivers I was in a bit of hurry (because of the sale) so I just, you know, put the items in the basket and basically clicked "order".
The strange thing was that I was never asked for the shipping address. My guess is that this was taken from my PayPal account. Anyway, the shipping cost was printed as $60. From experience I knew that this was unikely the real shipping cost to Norway, so I wrote at least 3 mails
to TC Sounds, because I wanted this sorted out. I never got any reply except for a standard "we have confirmed your order" type of mail.
And now, after the FedEx has actually delivered the items I get this letter from Heather at TC Sounds:
"Also I will be sending you an invoice for the balance of the shipping charges when we get the bill. I would appreciate it if you could get the money to us right away since I did not have you pay for it up front. Thanks I will let you know an amount when I find out".
So basically they could (attempt to) charge me for another $300 or whatever it costs to send 80 pound by air mail. This was exactly the thing I'd hoped to avoid with my 3 mails to TC Sounds. My plan was to send them by sea instead.
Does anybody have any idea how I should handle this?
