Chapter 6. After the Auction: Taking Car... > Making Contact—And Paying

Making Contact—And Paying

The first thing that happens after an auction ends is that eBay sends you an email notifying you that you've won the aforementioned auction. Depending on what kinds of payments the seller specified, you might be able to pay directly from this email message.

Calculating the Final Price

In most cases, the price you pay will include your high bid and a reasonable amount of shipping and handling fees. Don't be surprised if the shipping/handling actually runs a little more than what you might know the actual shipping to be; remember, the seller has to cover the costs of packaging supplies and the labor involved to pack and ship the item. If shipping/handling runs a few bucks more than actual shipping, don't sweat it.
