Sorry folks looking for some help here.

I have just won an item on ebay ( pushchair and carrycot )

The item was listed as collection only but i emailed the seller today asking if they would be willing to post or courier it. They replied saying that it would be fine , no probs.

I have just had an email from them telling me that the item was listed as collection only as posting would be too costly. I think it is all because the pram sold for just over £20 ( almost new )

I replied reminding them of the previous email.

Where do i stand. I have not paid yet but really want this

thanks for any replies

offer to arrange your own courier but if they won't send don't pay and report to ebay

So go pick it up....

Item number?

I cant pick it up thats why i asked for it to be posted or couriered:)

The item is in Worchestershire and i am in Edinburgh

Well tbh, look like you ain't gonna get it.

surley the clue was in the description (collection item only)

jus arrange a courier use they charge about £12.50 insured. or tell that guy to use parcel save to send an item to you that would cost £5.95.

LOTS like collection only as avoids paypal fees and the aggro of finding suitable packaging. As recently i sold 2 bundles of baby clothes and the padded bags cost me 1.20 each thats w/o and handling charge and im sure im not the only seller that feels guilty in charging more than £2 for packaging and handling even if it is justified. If you want a pram for local collect try Or if you really want that one tell the seller you willing to pay £1 extra to cover her paypal fees

But since the seller did specify collection only its either come to a mutual agreement or get a refund
