I hadn't realized that the seller was from Maine and should charge sales tax. Turns out he was from Texas and charged sales tax because he said that he did on his ad. Not only that but he was charging a 13.3% sale tax. I inquired about why and he replied he said he put it on his ad and therefore could charge Texas sales tax, and it wasn't 13.3% rather 8.5% (Texas Sales Tax Rate) and that he had included sales tax on the shipping and handling charges because Ebay charged him a tax on shipping and handling (part of his insertion fee).
Now would it be unreasonable to dispute such a charge or since it was only $0.84 just forget about it and steer clear of this guy.

Seems the po is telling me the 1.71 with dc is not enough and they are cracking down on it.
The lady said that delivery confirmation shipping is 2.51 and that is why I am being charged xtra.
Well why then if I /you use paypal printed shipping labels? For 1.71.

Sound like it was postage (for reg envelope + 1 oz) and DC from PO. They consider it a large envelope or package and charge more, thus the postage due.
Is this the case??

The shipping charges are right and where you get your savings is with the DC #. Honestly I sent a bubble mailer out with a card I traded didn't do the DC and it cost me 64 cent because it didn't meet the thickness limit. So its all on how you look at it.
