I think he should have eaten it and then learned his lesson on factoring shipping costs before posting the on BST. Good that he refunded immediately, but you already completed the transaction. He could have just as easily received a better offer and blamed shipping for cancelling yours. In short...I'd leave neutral to negative feedback.
Iíve sold drivers on here for $60 that cost $40 to ship. Problem is nobody would buy it for $100 even if I did factor in a worst case scenario shipping cost.
For something like bags I would probably change my normal policy to ďbuyer pays shippingĒ.
I think cancelling is ok because Iíve been in the sellers shoes. Luckily the guys I was selling to were gracious enough to send more money when they found out the shipping costs even though I did not ask.
Since the OP was trying to work w/ the seller itís a bummer but I think you have to let it go this time.
Just my 2 cents. 🙂
