....tell the douchbag that the FLAT RATE is 48 states...he 'aint 48 states....he gets it for what the price was + the 'fixed rate'.....and HE can arrange to ship it to whereever he wants for any aditional rate.

some of these guys do this on purpose so that they can re-sell things at big profit where they are as they try to pin the seller to a 'fixed rate'.

I never specified that it was $100 to the 48 or else Id be all on board with that. Maby Ill just present him with the options. A:cough up $425 more and get the short block in a week. B:Wait 4-6 weeks.

I cant believe someone would post a SB up for sale and not mention S/H. Just send it to him by ship, he might see it by July. LOL

Worst case is to relist it if he doesn't want it anymore. I would NEVER eat the shipping in this case. A shortblock to the UK? That's some mad $$$.

^^ Yeah the most he could do to you is put a blem on your feedback. Most everyone here would recognize that as just a failed business transaction. Just refund his $ and call it off. If he paid you by paypal you could just ne accept the payment, check the refund box.

Nah, Its sold, and I want it out of the garage.
I figgured Id let it go for $500 min and it sold for $700 +$100 shipping so even going with the two box idea thats still $620 sure beats paying the listing price over and over again till it sells for the minimum $500 bid.

Id like to save as much $ as I can but I cant see calling it off.
