Looks like it. Maybe a mistake? Are you aloud to do that?

That's got to be a cock up. Why on earth would it cost you £30 to collect it in person??

Might be that theyre trying to make extra money out of it, without paying to set a reserve price IYSWIM. ask

I sent them a message asking because i need a cot and it is close by, but i dont want to bid just incase.

You are allowed to charge for collection yes. Evidence of this is the fact that on Turbo Lister (not sure about other) there is a box for your charge to be inserted when you tick the local pick-up option.
How they justify a charge is debatable, but basically ebay won't be interested. You have done right in asking questions prior to bidding and obviously have the option to 'not' bid.
Tbh I'd be more worried about the fact that they are not showing photos of the actual cot they have.

If it is for pick up that's blatent fees avoidance. How much electricity does a door bell use?!

I'd be worried re no picture too, I dont bid on anything that doesnt have an actual picture rather then one taken from another site.

However as it is cash on collection you can actual see the item before you take it.

The cot is green though so he couldnt actually be bothered to find the right picture either and somebody has already questionned the colour.

Hey there - I messaged them querying the £30 and that is for UK delivery.
