theres no way round it ebay have set a max postage cost for certain items
banned#2
start the item higher to cover the postage costs

so start at 3 quid more than you were going to

probably a book, ebay dont realise some books are bigger than others!

Might be a better, or maybe a much worse idea to put the ad up next week instead. RM's prices usually rise at the start of the financial year, so if eBay raise their maximum postage in line with or ahead of that, you should be good. Mind you, as they probably won't, your best bet is to check out how much the item's going to cost to send using the RM website price finder, and work from there.

Other poster is trying to tell you to start the bidding £3 higher than you would have to cover the extra postage :thumbsup:

That won't really work though on bidding - if someone wants to bid £20 they will bid £20 whether you start the bidding at 1p or £10

Or you could choose postage option such as ' other courier' or similar and then state 'P+P will be £7' within the advert

try listing under a different category instead of clothing - e.g home - celebrations

What wouldn't work?

You still won't be able to put £7 in the postage box but what ele-font is saying is put postage as 'other courier and then in your LISTING description say 'postage will be £7'

You could state your own postage, and list your postage price on the listing, I've seen this done before, only way around it xx
