    I agree with much of what was said. You shouldn't be obligated to reimburse for such a large difference in the quoted shipping fee.

    Do consider though that in perishible goods such as plants (assuming it was a plant). You don't want to wait too long after packing before it is sent on it's way. Perhaps they felt the only way to avoid damage from extended packing time was to use expensive shipping? In either case you shouldn't be liable for the extra expense.

    I would pay the person $25 and add the experience to the quite lengthy list of mistakes I've learned from. If I were the one shipping it, I would have backed off and asked for approval before shipping.

    it's pretty obvious you were willing to pay around 5 bucks (to make math easier) and this is 5 (FIVE!) TIMES more than that. It's his/her/it's/their fault not yours.
    I say pay him 3.85. If he wants more, just ignore him :P

    There is no way I'd make someone who sent me a free plant pay some of the cost to ship it to me. It isn't fair.

    Before I can answer this question, I would need more info.
    First what is the value of the item?
    Second how well do you know this person.

    To me it sounds like a scam, if you don't know this person.
    In this case I would wait until I recieved the item and then make my decision if I would pay the higher amount.

    If the item is worth $5 why would somebody pay $25 to ship it? Why would he expect you to pay $25 for an item that is worth $5?
