The other $83.50 is the cost to locate a supplier for the part, place the part order, receive the part, inspect the part on receipt to ensure that it is the correct part, contact the vendor get a return material authorization for the incorrect part, repack the incorrect part for return to the vendor, to return the incorrect part sent in error, to receive the replacement part, inspect the replacement part to ensure that it is the correct part, to audit the statement to ensure that the shop is not charged for the incorrect part in addition to the correct part, processing the disbursement to pay the vendor.
When you buy a part over the internet, you take responsibility for performing all of these activites.
