I don't sell very often, a bit of a clear out of 20ish items twice a year. I always pack the items, weigh them and be sure never to over charge for postage. I don't charge extra to taken into account the trip to the post office or the materials. I always send a personal email to each buyer thanking them for buying my item and confirming it has been posted. When I started using ebay to sell about 7 years ago people used to send sweets and extra free items and really go to to town on nice packaging. If you want top rate feedback you have to offer a top rate service.

Also now I'm ranting, but most of these threads are from sellers with arses for buyers trying to scam them or get something for free.

Not sure if its just me but ffs.

Am really pissed off! Had buyers leave low marks on the scoring for postage and commication.

Postage: a few times I've under priced the postage so now I weight on scales, go on line, find a price then add 50p on for just in case. Buyers can see what the postage costs, it's not hidden so I can't understand why the low scores?

Communication: all my auctions end on a Sunday, I post them on Monday and mark the item as sent.
What more do people what or do?

Is it me? Or am I wrong to be pissed off
