    ebay seller adds postage at end of auction

    just won a dvd rw laptop drive item stated free postage, got invoice threw from ebay and the seller had added a £2 charger for recorded post.

    Is the seller allowed to add postage charges or alter them after the auction has ended

    item is £5.50 dvd rw drive second hand and in ok condition
    stated free pnp via royal mail recorded 1st class

    got invoice threw
    item price and now postage for the above service is now £2 instead of free,

    its only £2 but its the principle of the matter, ave sold on ebay and i make all my postage options clear

    report him to ebay

    No you can't add afterwards, tell him its against the rules and if he doesn't sent it with free postage you will report for breaking ebay rules.

    Ebay have recently relaxed the rule on free postage being compulsary but it still must be stated

    Yep tell him you want it for what you won it at or you will report him for false advertising.

    Did you have a check to see that they didnt state a postage price in the listing details? Ive seen a couple recently which say free postage but in the small print somewhere they have put a postage price

    It doesn't matter. If it states free postage it was probably one of ebays free postage items. many sellers try to be sneaky and say there is a postage charge in the listing, but they can't charge it, well they can from yesterday I think it was, as ebay have removed the enforced free postage, but that will only count on items listed after yesterday.

    OP should do this...
