This is a review of events of a purchase on the Internet where Seller required Buyer to pay the shipping costs. As weight of the order was significant, can understand sellers' requirement.
In this instance, the seller shipped incorrect parts. Reply from Seller when contacted agreed to refund purchase price, but not the shipping.
So, buyers' expense in this purchase to return the parts would be total of $88.00(shipping X 2) a little over 40% of the cost of the parts WHEN THE ERROR lies with the seller.
One can dispute the transaction with their credit card company (CCC), or sometimes through the 3rd party handling the transactions, BUT, the order must be returned to the seller/or a shipping ID filed PRIOR to CCC placing a dispute/hold on funds.
Therefore, one can never be returned to a position financially enjoyed prior to transaction.
The initial order was verified for accuracy.
The shipping package plainly showed the (incorrect size) inaccuracy.
Seller did not indicate any recompense on his part for his error.
This would lead one to the following conclusions:
The seller-
Best Farm Parts
2971 Holley Springs Rd.
Hernando , MS 38632
possibly has no interest in repeat sales.
According the Uniform Commercial Code U.C.C. Article 2-314, Usage of Trade,(2) (c) ... are fit for ordinary purpose for which goods are used..
Seller has failed to meet that requirement of agreement/contract.

So, be careful in an internet purchase where buyer pays the shipping(of any cost) as seller can send non- conforming goods and you are stuck.

That's why I use Amazon almost exclusively. Ebay is another pretty good one although it varies widely with the seller.

For Amazon, free shipping if you are on Prime or if the order is over $35. Free return shipping if it's the sellers mistake or for defective items. In addition to that, many sellers offer no-questions asked returns, for free of course. It does still vary though.

Try looking for the items on Amazon to see if available.
