Novice - how can I tell if this is a real offer?

I've been looking for a table and the ones I'm looking at tend to run a delivery fee of about£50. This one's offering £14.95. Quite a difference. So I'm worried that I'm buying a pic of a table rather than the table itself. How can I tell? Oh, and seller doesn't yet know I'm interested so doesn't know where I live - this is the advertised pp price.

What does the item description say? Maybe try messaging the seller asking details such as dimensions of the table. Check their feedback too.

Sometimes the actual delivery costs will be buried in the description, with the listed one just being a guide. Sellers often ask for a postcode to give a firm quote for large items.

Having said that, I have seen some very low delivery costs, particularly if it's a large business.

As PP said, check item dimensions and seller feedback.

Just Message seller and ask.

Can you put the link here and some of us can look at it to see if anything stands out to us?
Though means someone could buy it I suppose!

Thanks for this. I can't see a way to message the seller but will look again. I never use ebay so am finding it a little confusing!
