As many AbeBooks booksellers know, if you receive an order for a heavy book, or if you need to add tracking or insurance to the order, you can request additional funds from the book buyer.
If the buyer does not accept or reject within the 4 days, it is assumed the buyer does not accept the charges and you will be notified by email. You will then have the option to ship the book(s) at the original shipping charge or reject the order.
Important: you should reject the order if you do not intend to process it, as it will otherwise expire and damage your bookseller rating. When you reject an order after free shipping has been rejected it does not affect your ratings!
Please note, if you do choose to ship the order at the original shipping charge, all AbeBooks Return Polices will apply, including the buyer's right to a refund for 'Item did not arrive' if they do not receive the book. The entire order, (except for items marked 'previously sold' or 'rejected' earlier), must be processed again.
