Selling - postage question

(9 Posts)

I am wanting to sell a winter coat for around £50 on ebay.
I was wondering whether I should post it with proof of delivery for around £4 - £6.60 or £11 for tracked delivery? What do more experienced ebayers do?
Any advice would be much appreciated!

What would Myhermes charge with signature?

I haven't sold for a while, but for anything over £10 I use my Hermes, and then there is no dispute if the person 'claims' it didn't turn up. If you can't be in when they pick up, there are now drop off points. You can also use PayPal for myhermes making things easier. They have an easy to use website. Just make sure coat is really well packed, as they don't always treat items too well!

Thank you, this is so helpful!
I will look at the Hermes website smile

Another question - how do you estimate postage with myHermes?
The quote function wants me to put a postcode in but I obviously don't have a postcode to deliver to at this point confused

Thanks lljkk, I'll try that.
Otherwise I have now linked my ebay and myhermes accounts... I hope this was okay to do... Sorry for all the questions, ebay selling newbie grin

Have a look at It gives you a choice of parcel companies and prices. Useful as they vary in how they calculate prices so the same firm will not always be cheapest iyswim. They normally include myhermes and link to websites. We often use this site when posting ebay items.
