    Default Ebay postage

    My misses bought a handbag off ebay near 2 weeks ago and she paid £6.00 postage on top of auction price, Well item was delivered today and it cost the seller £1.89 to post lol What a rip off !!!!

    Now i always try to be fair when sending items and have sent many items that cost me more to send than i charged them for, But ive never over charged by £4 maybe the odd few pennies

    i always base mine on cost of packing my time and fuel to get to a post office, the way i look at it if its cheaper to get an item posted than i would pay online elsewhere i'm happy.

    I dont mind people over charging on postage as long as that reflects in the price of the item as it means ebay dont get as big a chunk of the final value.. I think they get paid enough for doing very little

    answer this are you happy with your item, did you get a bargain, theres nothing worse than selling an item for 99 p if you only just covered your postage, i'd rather bin the item or keep it lol

    depends on if you think the bag was a good deal all in I guess?

    Another factor people don't take into account with postage is time and petrol to get to a post office.. it all adds up

    Just give poor feed back for the postage costs on the star rating. Or complain to ebay and youll end up getting some of it refunded. Personally I would start by letting the seller know how you feel and asking for £4 back.

    And the packing; whether it be a jiffy bag, bubble wrap, box, etc. As you say, it all adds up.

    Item wasn't a bargain tbh misses thought it was worth a bit as these bags are, but it seems she left tags on bag and seller sold it for roughly what she paid for it out of a outlet store 2 years ago. Packaging wise it came in a new look bag wrapped up with some brown tape on it.

    provided the price of p&p is clearly visible i dont mind tbh, if the auction says to contact for p&p i dont bother.

    people have been charging less for items then making on the postag cos there are no ebay fees on the postage amount
