YAET: Shipping address

So I have 2 addresses associated with my paypal account and both are confirmed.

In ebay when I buy something I typically just pick whatever address I need an item sent to.

This time:

I bought a rather pricy item ($420+$50shipping) and set it to ship to my Indiana address. Seller sends to the Oklahoma address. I ask for a refund on shipping since I am now going to have to re-ship the item and get told to basically get lost.

Should I file a partial paypal claim?

Also Item was shipped non signature delivery and sat outside on the porch for 5 days until I realized their mistake and called my mom to get it. Item does appear undamaged though.

How did they get your Oklahoma address if you picked the Indiana address?

Probably by looking at my paypal account as opposed to the ebay transaction.

Shouldn't he have seen you had 2 addresses associated with your Paypal account and looked further than just grabbing one of them and shipping to it? I think the guy's a douche for not double-checking the shipping address. -kd5-

Considering you have to send to the address on the Paypal transaction to be covered, its not his fault. You should have had it set to your Indiana address.

Both addresses are confirmed and covered by paypal. Also I did, during checkout.

It's PayPal's fault. Because paypal would randomly pick any shipping addresses you have on file with them and send that to the seller. It's happened to me before and I immediately email the seller and give him the correct shipping address I want the item sent to.

Re: YAET: Shipping address

Can you even do a paypal dispute for just cost of shipping?

Re: YAET: Shipping address

Well I did a ebay dispute and asked for the $50 shipping back, I don't think the seller understood what that was as he proceeded to tell me to go fuck myself. So instead of ebay just giving me the $50 back they gave me the whole $470 back. I feel a little guilty about that but he was an ass.

This is why selling on eBay sucks these days.
