    Ebay and postage on CD's?

    I know cd's are meant to be free postage, got my eye on one on ebay, but it says FREIGHT/COURIER on the lisitng, then in the description they say postage is £1.85. Can I buy the cd and refuse to pay postage, even though they are claiming a courier is sending?

    There is no such thing as FREE POSTAGE for CDs. It is entirely upto the seller to send free of cost or charge postage. You can't refuse to pay the postage once you buy it coz you agree to the terms and conditions of sale and it clearly mentions the postage.

    Um, wrong.

    Cd's are free postage.

    games are meant to be free postage aswel and ive seen a few that say in the listing postage will be £2 or so, i think if you refuse to pay it he probably wouldnt send it, but maybe contact ebay and see what they say.

    not allowed to charge postage in that catagory, seller should have added postaged in item price, have a look at the community boards over there people are reporting sellers for charging postage on games, dvds. cds , ect,

    All you can do is pay for the item as soon as you win (will not show P+P)and if the buyer refunds you and insists you pay the P+P report him as a non performing seller and neg him and mark him down. if enough do that then they will soon change their ways

    The fact that the seller has put extra P+P in then you may get it cheaper anyway so if you are happy with the total price than just buy it.

    Thanks. I didn't know about the new ]p&p changes which took effect from 19-10-2009. There is a grey area though when items are delivered by specialist courier.

You are not allowed to add the surcharge after the listing has completed.



    Sorry I didn't know about the changes. Thanks again.

    Actually I've thought about it and decided it really isn't, a seller isn't allowed to charge for postage, if they then decide to send it via courier, surely that's stupidity. If you can't charge for postage, you send it as cheaply as you can, simples
