Seller on Another Forum. Am I Wrong?

I bought a bumper from a guy on another forum. We agreed on a price and I paid it. Now he's asking for another 50$ because apparently shipping was so expensive and he needs money. Am I wrong to deny him?

"We agreed on a price and I paid it" that should answer your question. If he agreed, AND took you money then it's yours and you owe him nothing. Now, if you want to be a really nice guy(and possibly a sucker) then sure pay him. He may be playing you to see if you'll pay.

Usually the sale is contingent on shipping. Was the sale price independent of the ship cost? If so, it should be easy to verify if he's being legit.

If it included shipping, I'd ask him to honor it. Otherwise, if you're not willing to part with the cash, I'd cancel the transaction. If he already shipped it, then well, there's not much he can do lol.

This. If they guy said the bumper was $xx.xx shipped, then he was the one that was dumb enough to not check the price of shipping to the furthest away place from him before putting his price up there, and he should be the one who eats that mistake. That's not your problem if he didn't do his homework before test day . Catch my drift. I'm usually a nice guy, but only when I'm the seller. I've refunded a little bit of cash to buyers all the time if they aren't completely satisfied with the product, but I NEVER ask for more money, ESPECIALLY if we already agreed on it AND received the money. This guy is trying to give you a sob story to get more money out of you.

I already received the bumper. So I agree he's Probubly giving me a Sab storey because he followed the request with "my transmission went and I have you such a deal on the bumper"

Yeah, now he's just trying to milk you for more. It's his fault he charged what he did, he has to deal with it and stop looking for handouts.
