earlier today I won a pair of designer trousers. The price was OK for what it is, but they are charging 10 quid for postage!! I'm pretty sure the listing didn't say this before - maybe it wasn't specified, or I wouldn't have bid. Maybe it's my own silly fault but they must be taking the p**, it wont cost more than 3 quid to post surely! do I complain or not?
You can leave comment in your feedback r/e excessive postage costs and mark them down if it is excessive. However when you bid you agree to the terms of the listing therefore you have agreed the postage costs and if you weren't happy with them you shouldn't have bid.
You could email the seller and ask which method of postage they are using and whether they would consider a cheaper option - but - they don't have to and it should have been asked before you bid. Agree - it seems very excessive!! Are their other items the same? If so, you can report to Ebay.
will have to be more careful in future - usually I check. Must have been drinking wine at the time!! the item is worth a lot more new (I know the designer, would have cost 3 times the amount to buy). but yes, I shouldn't have bid in the first place.
I would charge £3.00 Postage for a pair of cords. £10 is ridiculous and in breach of ebay excessive P&P policy. Definitely mark them down on the star system and consider reporting the other listings - it's ebay fee avoidance.
Unless it is an item of value I send by 1st or 2nd class and get proof of postage, if they get lost in the post I claim via Royal Mail which covers loss up to approx £36. Even sending a boxed Nintendo DS by special delivery doesn't cost more than £7! You can send a 30kg box by courier for less than £8, so yes I think £10 is unreasonable for postage.
well they arrived in very quick time, they were quite heavy but the stamp on them was for around £4. I gave positive feedback as they are lovely, in perfect condition, but marked down on postage (on the star rating, by the looks of it others have done the same)
