Won three items from the same seller this morning, total came to about £11 and the postage for each item is £3. Asked seller if they could combine the postage for me as I have done in the past for buyers and other sellers have done for me. Seller said no because she expected to get more for the items than they sold for and to let her know if I now don't want them.
I still want the items but I just don't think a seller should be profiting that much from postage. Surely the fact she wanted more for them is not my problem and she should have put a higher start price on them in the first place!

Well I would be livid if someone did this. Totally unreasonable. Postage is not part of the bid. I always combine. Leave them the lowest P&P stars and I would be tempted to go neutral or neg. I have left my first ever neg recently after 10 yrs of ebay. Reading about what happens on here has hardened me up to people who just seem to ruin it for everyone.

what exchange did you just have with them, YeahBuddy?

Moot whether it's reasonable to ask for postage discount after the fact but never any excuse for Ebayers to be rude. And downright foolish for a seller to be rude.

Are you happy with the total price (including the £9 postage?)
If you got a bargain, and you really want the items, then if I were you I'd just pay and be chuffed I got a bargain.
Or, if you're not happy with the price once you've added £9, then just take the seller up on her offer of cancelling.
I agree btw, it would have been nice of the seller to combine the postage. But you shouldnt have assumed they would.
