You should not have had to "write off" the cost of the screw up. Most vendors will let you revoke and renew under the same bill. I work with Verisign (Symantec) and Thawte all the time and when customers order the wrong thing they never get billd for the mistake just revoke-renew.
I can't speak for Equifax and Godaddy and all the other Verisign wannabees. =)
