Any ideas why eBay wont let me charge for postage. It keeps saying this cant exceed £0.00?

It links me here for more info : pages.ebay.co.uk/hel…tml

What are you trying to list?

a DVD boxset

Ebay, in their wisdom, have decided that all DVDs must be postage free. Try listing it under a different catergory!

I'd say there trying to bump there fees, as lets face it you can save yourself a packet by saying it costs 3.00 for delievery and lower the initial buy it cost. Saving you a bit. I've decided to only use ebay for items that won't sell elsewhere.

more than likely.

I used to sell loads of rare dvds (yes there such things !) on flebay, but this is just stupid. A single dvd costs at least 70p to post a good jiffy bag or padded envelope is 25p so we're at a quid before even allowing for the time it takes to go to post office and get the proof of posting stamped up....

My next batch of dvd's will be going up here. . .

So you include the postage in the sale price. Brain science, I got it :lol:

Have actually tried that and no one bought any. . . Ebay, of course, got their insertion fee which is all their bothered about.

Plus paypal fees. Ebay are screwing every casual seller over - the whole point ofthe site in the first place.

Yeah I know. Your prices are no longer attractive to the 'DVD rental' brigade. Ebay are clown shoes. I've just had to sort a FVF refund on a £6k item, some thick a***hole thought it would be funny to sign up and 'buy' the item.
