Found 26th Mar 2013Made hot 26th Mar 2013
Don't forget Royal Mail parcel prices are significantly increasing on April 2nd,so don't get caught out.

There are also new dimensions to consider,some parcels that previously cost 2,20 to post 2nd class COULD now cost £5.20 if it's classed as a Medium sized parcel and is not within the exemption size of up to 16x16x16cm

Link to order a free template is in post 3,you don't need to be a business,just create a business name for yourself at your home address etc.


Bring on the Ebay haters ;-)

I forgot to thank MSE this week for the heads up again :-)

It's a joke isn't it,also on that free template you can order,it doesn't show the size exclusions,it's in small print on the pdf at Royal Mails site.So some people won't even realise there are exceptions for cube sizes as below, as it's in tiny writing online and not even mentioned on the template.

Exceptions apply. The following items are also priced as Small Parcels. Parcels that measure up to: Length: 16cm, Width: 16cm, Depth: 16cm.
Also roll or cylinder shaped parcels that measure up to Length: 45cm, Diameter: 8cm.

I'm just clearing out things I don't want. things like books and other things are not going to be even worth listing now. Every time go to the post office though counter staff mention it. They agree it's ridiculous.

I sold a man 2 boxes of items last week, he paid £5 postage the cheapest was £5.20 sending both together or more sending separately and he gave me two 1s for postage and 2 1s for dispatch time, he bought Sunday evening posted Tuesday morning. Miserable ****. And they'll be more dumb one's like that who somehow miraculously expect to buy something for **** and then get postage for **** all.

The post has been edited. I used the word b*gg*r not f word. Looks like I have a really potty mouth now.

OMG had no idea the prices were going up this much :-( and to top it all the amount of compensation you get for a standard parcel either 1st or 2nd Class has decreased from £46 to only £20 in order to get cover upto £50 you have to pay signed for (recorded delivery which currently costs an extra 95p) and that is an extra £1.10.
I buy and sell lots of dvds on Ebay mainly full collections and boxsets this rise will in effect double the postage charges for most of my items....daylight robbery!!!!

Ordered a free template, will come in use for eBaying, thanks!

Many thanks OP. RM is getting so expensive. I use Collect +, very good service. Personally I think it's is fair on both the buyer and seller. When I sell things on eBay I still feel dreadful if postage is too high hence use other services. Only use RM for letter. Personally I think RM are selling themselves out slowly...

Royal mail are just like the goverment a buch of jokers and fools.

No doubt it'll only be similar over the next week or two with all the bad weather we are experiencing. Some buyers have no understanding when it comes to deliveries.

Thanks a lot deb8z, just ordered the free parcel template using my Dad's business name; even though I am the Company Director now, lol. I don't even have to do anything.

By the way, heat added.

Agree to both, a friend used to charge 99p for 2nd class recorded parcels when cheapest was 1.70 at the time, yet people said postage was too high so got low dsr and then got kicked off ebay. So unfair.

Thank you for the template link.
Royal Mail are a joke with silly price increase again.

Thanks deb8z, glad you weren't put off by the moaners on your previous posts, its always handy to have advance notice of these free listing weekends, even though they happen quite often; gives us all time to sort out our stuff to sell, take photos, etc.
And thanks for the template link, saves me making my own.

Would boxsets fit within the exemption size at all,if they are upto 16x16x16cm they will still be charged the lower rate as they will still be classed as a small parcel and not the extortionate medium parcel rate.

Thanks for the heads up deb8z, I need to do a spring clearout so this is good timing

Fab - had a clearout and was planning on listing tonight - will hold off now! Thanks.

The Royal Mail are a joke.

I got booted from ebay for postage charges when i was selling alot of books on a clearout. My advice is never sell books on ebay ever !!!! (unless you like giving **** away free or at a loss)

Buyers who have never been sellers are just too unreasonable to be trusted or have no concept of postage charges for packages and with these new prices it is going to be more carnage !

Thanks for the head up about the royal mail going up! I've ordered a template

Fiver for postage are you having a laugh, that's me gone from ebay selling. Only worth selling items worth £20+, thought the idea was you get rid of cheap junk in your house. One big joke.

If your junk is small packet rate or up to 16x16x16cm postage will be 2.60

Wanna bet they will increase prices too soon after RM ?

Do you have to receive an email from Ebay informing you of free listings?
I only ever seem to get one from them in the early hours of saturday morning and I am never prepared then

Cheers ma dears OP for the template linky. I've named my business 'rip off and leg it'. Does that name ring any bells? I wonder now if the blasted thing will turn up??
