What to do with eBay transaction?

I like both of you guys just fine, so I'm not gonna pick sides...but Rookie, what if someone ships you an item only charging you the bare minimum and it arrives damaged or gets lost? They charged you the shipping you wanted, but didn't get insurance on it. Do you adjust for someone buying insurance, do you expect the seller to make that his expense, or what? Just curious.
I always add insurance unless it's something I can pay out of pocket if something happens and I don't recall any item I've shipped being under $10 no matter where it's going (I know it's a bit cheaper online).

Shipping and handling cost are just part of doing business (or "overhead" cost , if you will).
Now I received a used RBZ fairway the other day that was simply tossed in a box and the ends taped shut. No headcover, no bubble wrap, no paper, nothing, just a club flopping around in a box. Seller was LUCKY!

So did you get the difference from what it cost and what they charged you? You said before that it was 15 cents difference between Priority and parcel. Could you go into more detail what the decission was based on. If PP is deciding on the difference of actual shipping costs and what is charged it sure does open up alot of disputes. I never paid just actual shipping costs on anything I ever bought on Ebay.
