Sending stuff to India - any couriers that will do it reasonably cheaply?

I bought some things from India which aren't like the pictures - the seller is nice and says I can return them but so far have found courier services that cost around £50 or more...has anyone any thoughts on a cheaper method please?
Thanks x

If you paid by paypal, I think the seller has to bear the cost of returns. Ask her what she wants to do.

sadly not Nine...how I wish!

The buyer has to fund return postage. Seller just has to refund the original.

What are the Post Office prices like?

Thanks both - Lilred, the post office is probably the cheaper option but it's still £21 for 2kg, which is more than I paid for each item and would only cover one of them.

I think I might just resell them on ebay! Might even make a profit but would certainly lose less iyswim.

Thanks for the link Whoosh, it was worth a try!!
