Hi, I could use some help. How can I add additional shipping charges to a international buyer that has already paid. I am new to international charges,so I made a mistake on how much the shipping was. Buyer is willing to pay more, I do not know how to charge ?  Thanks you so much,learning things the hard way!LOL

You can't.


If you made a mistake in shipping, then YOU absorb the cost.  You CANNOT change the terms of the sale after the fact.  It does NOT make a difference if they are willing to pay the extra cost.............They do NOT need to.  You will need to ship with the extra coming out of YOUR pocket.


Make sure you read EVERYTHING you can about selling..........It is CRUCIAL that you do.


The buyer can report you for even asking. 


Examples of prohibited behavior include:


Entering an amount for shipping costs when you're listing an item, and then indicating that you charge a different amount either in the item description or after the buyer has committed to buying the item
