Canceling is pointless since the money was wired. The cost of transfer will be lost by both vender and customer.
I would say a quoted price should be honored especially if the advertised price matches
on the go~~~~~
with it being a wire transfer, in all honesty, the customer is stuck. the only way to get any refund is if the company decides to send it back to him. i would highly recommend you setting up a paypal account to use for future purchases overseas. this way you have some type of way to get a refund if the company isnt willing to honor what he should.
just to give you some insight from our end. all the messages we send never really have an end date to the price unless its a monthly special that we advertise. a good rule of thumb for the customer to go by is only assume that your price will be good until the end of the month. normally pricing changes only happen once or twice a year. a good bit of products (tires, oil,etc.) changes month to month. the % always fluctuates.
the best way,imo, to pick who to do business with on a forum is look and see how much that company actually gets on the board, offers advice, and trys to help members by answering questions posted on the forum. those are the companies that actually value your support here. from what i have seen over the years, generally, these companies tend to take care of the members better.
there are a number of sponsors/vendors on here that just post up stuff for sale without any help for any member outside of their "for sale" threads. those guys just consider you a sales number. buyer beware when dealing with these companies.
we have always been on here answering questions and trying to help guys out. i myself have been on hondas 22 years now. got 4 in my garage right now, including a 600rr. if you ever have any questions concerning something, just ask. ill answer what i can.
good luck and hopefully the situation you are in works out the way you want it to.
