Problem With Seller, Need Advice

Sorry if this isn't the right place but I can't start a thread in the Selling forum yet.

I paid for an item via paypal personal payment and I think the seller is being a jerk about it. After we agreed on a price and I sent the payment, he sends me a PM asking for an additional $10 for shipping stating the item is heavy and will cost him too much to ship it to me. Bear in mind this seller has already sold a few of the same item so he should be aware of shipping weights/cost estimates and his prices stated on the thread are CONUS shipped prices.

I ask to be refunded and he says the item has already shipped but I get no tracking number despite asking for it several times before.

What should I do?

Just wait, if it was already shipped without the extra $10 requested after the fact.

He has been a member for about 4 years. Also, apparently he shipped the item after I'd asked for a refund and still haven't provided a tracking number. Based on his language to me via PM, he may be scamming me.

Those bullshit paypal personal payment requests from sellers need to stop, never use this option!

I figured since he was a long-time member, I was OK. I guess I was wrong to assume.

EDIT: The member has contacted me and I feel a little better about the whole thing.

Thanks
