I've been on eBay for years as a buyer. Something happened last night that I've never encountered before. I bought an item using the Buy It Now feature. I paid for the item as I normally do and figured I'd get a shipping notice in the next day or two. Instead, I woke up to a message from the seller: Hi--there was a mistake in the listing price of this buy it now item...it was to be listed at $32.99...we are going to cancel and refund this purchase...we just wanted to see if you wanted us to coordinate a repurchase or you just want the refund..let us know before we do refund..thank you I was taken aback. The item was listed at $26.99 so we're not talking about a huge difference. Has anyone else ever experienced this? But it gets stranger. I was mulling this over during my work day. I didn't reply because I don't do anything of this sort while I'm at work. I do this stuff in the evening. I came home and started looking through my e-mails. I see I have an order update from this seller: We are sending the book..it is up to your discretion to send us the balance of $6 ... I'm not sure whether I should be angry or amused. I think the seller has some nerve trying to change the price after the deal has been made. If you stated the incorrect price, that's for you to deal with. But to then try to guilt me into paying the balance after going ahead and shipping the item without even giving me 24 hours to respond? Collosal nerve! Just curious to see what others here think as I know this is a mostly male forum. Do you think my being a woman has anything to do with this? What would your response be? And most importantly, would you pay the new price the seller was asking?
