Gone through all the details of what i am selling and can i hell figure out about the postage cost's! Keeps coming back with:

Postage cost - P&P cost in this category can't be more than £0.00. Learn more

I've gone into the postage calculator and it comes up with 0.90 which i have then typed in but it keeps coming back with that bloody error!!!!

Can someone give me some guidance b4 i lose the plot!!! cheers!

P&P must be free for games now.
#3
think ebay insists u now offer free postage on certain items like games, cd's etc and thats why its defaulting to zero postage

Thats just stupid, been going on for years.

Could the reason be that with no posage cost the item sells a little higher than normal

i.e
Old Rule £10.00 P+P 2.99
New Rule £12.99

That gives ebay more final selling fee no??

Kills the 99p listing, so you have to list around what you want and therefore incur higher listing fees as well.

It#s great for the user, snapping things up for 99p, and then seeing it arrive with the postage price on the envelope at £1 plus

+ Jiffy bag 20p
+ Neutral feedback for slow delivery due to royal mail strikes

I've also had it on here, bought a keyboard for £2.50, arrived with a £4.70 postage label on it :giggle:

Ebay was supposed to be an auction site, but it's just buyitnow or auctions starting at the price they should be buyitnow. Just a glorified classified site now. They should go back to the auction format, no buy it now and start at £1 or something, if you have a high valued item you put a reserve price in.

Try changing the category. It worked for me.
