Telsa answers questions about battery swap announcement

So the options after you swap your battery are a) return to the same station and swap your original battery back in for another $60-$80, b) get sent a bill by Tesla charging you a prorated amount depending on how new the battery pack you got was compared to the original one(which could be hugely expensive i'd imagine), or c) Tesla will send you back your original battery and you'll pay a transport fee to get your swapped battery back to them, which i'd imagine is also hugely expensive since the battery packs weigh how many hundreds and hundreds of pounds? Is this correct? Seems Tesla has made this whole process far more convoluted and expensive than need be.
