I bought an item and expected for the postage costs for it to be sent recorded, well it wasnt, and the actual cost was £1,14, and the chage was £2.99.. slight inflation in my eyes.. options..

rip in to the seller with some neg feedback :)

was it well wrapped ? in doing postage costs you do need to consider how much the wrapping cost :D

if you agreed the postage cost and didnt ask for how it was comming , then its partly your own fault , but on the pluss side it will make you check next time :)
#2
I'd speak to the seller first and see if you can resolve it. It really pees me off when people didlle you out of p&p!
#3

if your not happy contact the seller before leaving the feedback and see if they are willing to do anything about it but also as above says have to take in consideration how its packed :)

If it said recorded and it wasn't then make a note of that in the feedback and mark them a 1* on their DSR's for p&p.

postage isn't just the stamp cost
you agreed to the postage charge, don't see what the problem is.

Do you not consider your time worth any money to yourself? Or how about the fuel costs in order to get to the Post Office.

It's not like you just have to sit at home and Royal Mail come and pick up all of your mail so that actual cost for posting is more than just the charge that it states on the postage label.

Fair enough if it was about £10 but you agreed to paying the postage costs and should have confirmed what method of delivery you would prefer.

Well there you go then, no comeback really. As for the petrol, you also have to take into account their costs re the drive to the supermarket for tea, milk and biscuits. Can't wrap a parcel without them :lol:

hahaha:-D so where was my biscuits no jaffa cake included in the item :x

£1.80 could easily be bus fare to the post office. i think its an unfair grumble. if you paid £10 postage and it cost a couple quid then yeah, give em hell, but in this case? nah.

Have you checked the packaging for crumbs :lol: Maybe they ate them to save you the trouble:w00t:

I wouldn't man, I assume the overall price was agreed beforehand. You can't always judge postage prices correctly tbh.

Would seem really petty to leave neg rep for that.

Whether or not the sender should of taken the initiative to of refunded you the difference in postage price is an interesting issue tho...

interesting thought, and on a serious note, I actually did email the seller and ask why so high.
I have sold a massive ammount of stuff on Yahoo auction before it was taken over by ebay, and I alwasy tried to keep postage down, I just see it now by some , a sneaky way to recoup fees, and to me thats not on. :-D

You just did me a good turn.

Whenever I sell an item on here anymore I'll add ...and packing to my postage blurb.

Though I usually put the cost of the item and postage together i.e. game X £20 posted etc.

well where is my rep then :x, ebay postage and packing conmanTM :p
#33
does the postage not include packing, time, taking to post office etc as well as the actual postage, its only just over a pound difference so maybe the recorded was too close to or even more than what you actually paid to be worth it to the seller
#34
in my opinion it would be tight to leave negative feedback. as mentioned a few times already, postage fees are not for postage alone. in effect, by making a bid you entered into a contract and therefore an agreement on postage fees.

shops are no different in the way they recoup postage costs.
#35
Wow, some people in this thread have some serious issues.
#36
Most of what I sell on ebay is offered with free postage and then I decide what postage it should go by, over £12 but under £36 it goes recorded, over £36 it goes registered and below £12 it goes 2nd class,

I take it from that inept reply you have in fact, no response to the argument.

Not everyone lives close to a post office and the nearest one to me is about a 10 minute drive so is a bit annoying if you have to make a special trip. Especially if that is only to post something of nominal value.
#38
nah not really its lame on da seller.
#39
Pity the seller cannot neg you back, you agreed to the terms when you hit the bid button, now you decide that you have changed your mind.:x

eBay should ban buyers that do this.
