    Default Ebay predicament

    I have 45 motor couplings to sell, so I listed a few on Ebay for 99p so I don't have to pay listing fees for each one and can make a bit on the postage. There isn't much call for this part so listing it as a BIN would be expensive as I would need to re-list everyweek.

    I listed and sold 4 this week to the same guy. All 4 went for 99p and the postage is £2.55 each. I didn't list postage discount for more than one. He now wants the invoice for them. Do I discount the postage and by how much? Actual postage will be £1.28, so I was thinking of chucking a couple more in the bag.

    I know I broke the rules but I didn't think one buyer would buy more than one.

    how exactly did you break the rules?

    if you didn't put a discount and he isn't asking for one then don't worry about it. post as is.

    he has agreed to your terms, send as is... postage costs always include more than just the stamp anyway as you'll have cost for envelopes, time, petrol to post office etc..

    well hes agreed to it so you have done nothing wrong.

    You dont have to offer postage discount... Just make sure u pop them into indvidual envelopes.

    If you still feel bad about it then just either knock a few quid off or pop another one in for free...
