When you hit the buy it now button, you knew that he was going to charge you Â£6.75 postage so by BIN'ing it, you agreed to pay his charges. I do see your point, but its not as if he hid the charge from you.
Generally people don't know what it costs to post stuff, so they guess. He guessed at Â£6.75, and you came along, quite happy to agree to that cost, and hit the BIN button.
It always pays to query high shipping charges before buying something on e-bay, but then if the price is so good that you don't want to miss out by procrastinating then surely in your mind, you've already justified the Â£24 for the shoes anyway?
Leaving you poor feedback is harsh though. With the new e-bay system, you can give him a bad rating for his shipping costs, which will affect the way that future stuff he sells is listed.
Agree entirely. The charge was clear, and you chose to buy at the BIN + Shipping. There's no case for him to answer...though leaving the negative feedback sucks. If you don't like the shipping charge, don't buy. When you hit BIN you'd already decided that the BIN + Shipping = a deal you were prepared to enter in to. If this is a gripe about people overcharging fair enough, but you made the call, and the seller made a profit - intentionally or not - and whether intentional or not doesn't really matter as the price was clear.
