Unless you explicitly had a shipping contract it is assumed that you and the seller had a delivery contract.

In a shipping contract the seller is responsible up to the moment of shipping. This are extremely rare for small business or personal use.

In a delivery contract the seller is responsible up through delivery. These are common.

I just recently had a priority mail package come in with a hole (like, yesterday, missing the marker completely thankfully) and this is the first it has ever happened to me. I usually (say that cause I have run out last minute) wrap my stuff thoroughly in bubble wrap, then stuff the package so no damage can occur. His packaging was very lacking. On top of that, I have personally given full refunds, and paid for return shipping on items I have sold that had a small defect I did not notice, so therefore did not describe. I usually just sell it again for less after describing the newly found defect, even if it was due to shipping. But, i am also the kind of seller who is looking to make my buyers feel comfortable and worry free throughout the whole process, some people aren't like that, and then you end up in situations like this.

I just had an eBay iPad come to me in a padded envelope with no additional packing. It was loose inside the envelope. Amazingly it survived the trip unscathed.

I've had plenty of guns shipped in USPS boxes with nothing for padding. not even newspaper. Pretty scary to pick up a box and hear metal banging around.

I've also had some wrapped in dirty clothes... or popcorn! More then a few stuffed with popcorn. I've learned that people are stupid, and/or cheap. That is the internet.

But I know where the seller is coming from. Sometimes I'd ship something and the post office says "its under 13oz, so it qualifies for 1st class.... and much cheaper".

1st class and Priority all ship together, so seems like there is no difference.... though in reality there are small issues (like insurance, etc).
