"New P&P requirements in place from 27th January 2009
We'd like to advise you of changes to our Postage & Packaging Policy that will come into effect on 27th January 2009.
The new policy requirements for listing on eBay.co.uk include:
1. The need for sellers to specify a domestic P&P cost on all their listings.
2. The introduction of maximum costs for domestic P&P in the following categories:
Books / Comics / Magazines
DVD, Film and TV
Mobile and Home Phones
3. All DVD listings to offer free P&P for domestic deliveries.
Excessive P&P costs are cited as a major reason for buyers spending less online. Offering a competitive P&P cost can drive higher sales conversions on eBay.
We believe these changes will enable sellers to continue offering the best value on eBay, and allow us to continue serving you with the largest volume of buyers on the web.
To help sellers add this information to multiple listings at once, we've added new functionality which will be available in Selling Manager and Turbo Lister.
To find out more information about these changes, please visit the eBay General Announcement Board.

When it says "All DVD listings to offer free P&P for domestic deliveries." what's that mean, all DVD's must have free UK postage or free for local collection/ hand delivery.
So what happens if you sell a DVD for under a £1 (quite often with older releases) and you have to post it for free, after the ebay, paypal fees the envelope and postage. It will be costing the sellers money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I understand it's great for buyers & seller's shouldn't rip people off with postage costs. But people will stop selling older DVD's on ebay if postage has to be free.
