Arrow rearsets won on ebay
I just won a set of Arrow rearsets from an English shop on ebay for 200 pounds (which works out to be less than 50% of what I could get them for over here in Australia). It stated the postage to urope would be 25 pounds so I assumed it would be around 40 pounds to Oz.
I get an email from ebay this morning saying the shipping is 120 pounds!!! I've sent the shop an email asking them to confirm this is the correct shipping prices because I checked the Royal Mail website and airmail will only cost 44 pounds. I don't see it's my problem they would have lost money, they didn't put a reserve on the item so too bad. Maybe they thought they'd be able to recoup some of their losses from an idiot who doesn't think 120 pounds is extremely excessive. Not this little black duck!
