For the duration of Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th August 2006 (local UK time), sellers listing items using Auction-style or Auction-with-Buy It Now formats in an eligible category will pay a reduced 10 pence (£0.10) Insertion Fee per item listed. In addition, Sellers using the Auction-style format when listing will not be charged the Listing Upgrade Fee if they upgrade their listing to a Auction-with-Buy It Now format listing during the promotion. Please refer to "What's Excluded?" for more details.

If the item is listed in 2 categories, the Insertion Fee will be 10 pence times 2 i.e. 20 pence. The last section of the "sell your item" (SYI) form will show that eligible Sellers have been charged the reduced 10 pence Insertion Fee and, if the Seller upgraded their Auction-style format listing to a Auction-with-Buy It Now format listing during the promotion, that the eligible Seller will not be charged the Listing Upgrade Fee for their upgrade.

Thanks!! Voted++ and it's reached the front page target!!

Probably the last one before the Royal Mail price re-hike. :roll:
#2
Hi Ducky,
I thought you had a sig a few minutes ago? :confused:
#3
And it is a hike too, I have to send blood samples to London costing 49p at the moment 1st class after the increase it will be £1 first class. Now that is a hike if ever I seen one.

I may just pop it in post box and plead ignorant.

Sorry for going off topic, just a little bit mad at the increase and could not resist.
#4
I thought that overall the PO made no more money out of this. That's plainly not true.

Well, it's okay for larger items but any small item which is only just too wide to go through the slot will cost a lot more, regardless of weight or their actual volume which is probably smaller than some of the letters will cost!! The PO will probably make the same amount of money more or less - they'll just be ripping some people off more than others.

looks like the trick will be to fold everything into the small size if possible

LoL. /me goes to fold his XBOX games.

This is a prime example. Previously, DVDs and X-Box games would be light enough to go for 32p first class, the smallest size. Now they're 44p.

Not a big price hike you might say, but if eBaying:

Listing fee: Minimum of 15p
Postage: 44p
eBay commission: 3.2%??
Paypal: 20p + 3.4% commission
Packaging: Maybe about 20p+

It all starts to add up.


I used to sell hair colours on eBay. Thankfully they've all gone now, but they would have been hard hit. They were very light and very small, but the box was too big to fit through the biggest slot in the new system.

Therefore, these parcels would increase from 32p to £1.00!! WOW!! A price increase of 68p!! By the time I was running out of them (had about 300) I was making 20p profit on each one. I wouldn't have been able to go on with that. :(
#9
Absolutely, I think the Post Office has realised where their key delivery markets are and simply gone to make more money out of them.

Having said that, I rarely see someone selling a DVD or Console game with a P&P less than £1.50 ;)

Yes, but you're probably paying £1 easily for fees and packaging isn't cheap these days either. :(

Plus there's the game price. If the bit amount's only 99p then you've hardly made anything, lol.

I'm going to invent a machine which will email parcels, then I'll be RICH!! :evil:

I know, but eBay don't like you taking your fees out of the P&P fee ;)

I know, sometimes it rarely makes it worth putting it on eBay altogether.

I've got some blueprints I started work on, I'll post them to you before the 21st August ;)

Yes it sucks! I will be selling my computer though and shipping it PARCELFORCE 48 STYLE!

Thanks for this - will do it on the 10th for a 10 day auction..
#13
I'm also having a moan about the Royal Mail system most prices have gone up but the prices of the stamps haven't gone down even if the letter is small.
#14
We need to send a complaint to the PO. :) Anyone good at writing letters?? We'll post it up on a petition website. :p
#15
I think ASDA should do parcel delivery. I mean, they have trucks going from the stores back to the warehouses empty, they might as well let you hand a parcel over, take it back in the empty van to the storage depot and then distribute them from there.

Supermarkets could even have a price war on it!! :D
#16
Hang on, how can posting a game/dvd be that cheap.

I pay upwards of 68p for a dvd when it is sent in a normal mail lite envelope, and sometimes a bit more when the games are a bit heavier with their manual etc.

My post office must be stealing from me as i even get them weighed.:(

Ooh, you're onto something there Ducky!

Yeah, I wasn't sure about how DuckMagicUK2 managed to work out such a cheap postage cost either, but I just ran with it. Sometimes I get the 52p because it's just light enough!

Thanks for this dino :)

Please all remember to vote on all deals and leave reputation for any post that deserves it or not ;)

Thanks!
#21
I assumed DVD cases would be light enough. :roll:
#22
An empty case yes, but then add the disc, manual and sleeve and it goes up a fair bit :)

Back to the 10p listing day everyone!

I've read through the T&Cs and was thinking of adding a BIN Price for free to all my open listings that currently don't have bids but the first one I've tried it on said at the bottom before submitting it that there is a charge of 25p to add this BIN. This charge isn't showing on my eBay charges screen but does anyone else think you can add a BIN to existing auctions under this promotion?

Thanks,

Julian

I don't think that's possible netwalk, only items that were due to start today would also have the promotional price. If an item has already started I think it's excluded from the promotion, even though it has no bids.

Hijacking the post briefly back to Royal Mail & Postage. I had a look at the new pricing structure and if you pop a DVD/PC/Console Game into a jiffy bag/envelope and it is less than 2.5cm thick (which mine usually are)
then 101g - 250g is 65p 1st Class, which is 3p more than the amount I usually pay for sending 2nd Class.
101g - 250g 2nd Class is 55p which is 7p cheaper, or if I ever managed to hit that 150g limit (which was rare) is 5p more expensive.

Given that it lets me go up to 250g with the new pricing scheme that doesn't work out as too bad actually.

Posters, MP3 players, Mobile phones, even silly little accessories on the other hand are really going to get beaten.

They say you can go up to 100g on the smallest slot. That's supposed to be good?? It's only 5mm thick!! What are you posting?? Titanium?? :roll:

Hello again netwalk, I just checked the eBay Info and this is what it says:

eBay
[LIST]
[*][FONT=arial][SIZE=2] [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=arial][SIZE=2]
[*]If the item is listed in 2 categories, the Insertion Fee will be 10 pence times 2 i.e. 20 pence.
[*]The last section of the "sell your item" (SYI) form will show that eligible Sellers have been charged the reduced 10 pence Insertion Fee and, if the Seller upgraded their Auction-style format listing to a Auction-with-Buy It Now format listing during the promotion, that the eligible Seller will not be charged the Listing Upgrade Fee for their upgrade.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST]

So it should be okay, but if it's not showing up, I don't know, I'm going to put some things on myself in a minute and I'll let you know what happens.

Hmmm, according to eBay's own T&C's for this offer the discount should be applied straight away. Last time they did say that it would be back-dated, but it's not unlike them to just be completely crap. Like I said, I'm going to put a few things on in a moment so I'll let you know how I get on.

Well guys I have just put something on eBay and it seems that the discount is applying fine, I was charged 10p for the listing and Free for the upgrade with Buy It Now.

Not sure about upgrading the existing auctions with Buy It Now netwalk, but it seems these should be fine too.

Thanks for your help X10. I took a gamble and upgraded all my open auctions to BIN and do not appear to have been charged. Even better, 4 of them have sold already :-D so I'm really considering doing more BIN auctions in the future.

I've got a few BIN on Ebay at the mo, put them on as auction and upgraded and its only charged me 10p, still doesn't make up for the final valuation fee and then the paypal charges though , does my nut cos if you sell anything over £20 u may aswell knock a couple of quid off it straight away. I'm not one to rip people off with high postage either some people charge you say a few quid for posting some small crappy item then when it comes you find it only cost the half the amount you paid :evil: I'm all for making a few quid but some people have no shame !! Anyway rant over i hate ebay its just a easy way to sell bits you don't need :grin: and some people really do buy anything !! :lol:
#34
I refuse to accept Credit Card or Debit Card payment with PayPal, that way I can have people pay into my standard account. Of course the £250 monthly limit can be a problem sometimes, I guess it depends on how much you sell.
The thing is, now that PayPal is so widely used and was bought by and integrated into eBay, if you tell people you don't use it they won't bid on your auction, stupid, I mean, you used cheques before PayPal didn't you! Ugh.
You're right malibu777 eBay can be annoying a lot of the time.
