What is the cheapest way to deliver sold items on ebay

went to post office earlier and 2 packages cost just over £11, are couriers cheaper
i didnt realise royal mail cost so much. I under priced the delivery costs and got about anoth 10 items to send which i will also lose money on

hiya, depending on size and weight, with parcel libe, you can send a package upto 25kg in weight and upto 1meter all round for £9.79 including vat etc, but smaller items you are better off at the post office, unless it s a few to the same address? regards

You could check out: hermes-europe.co.uk which used to be Parcelnet

50p why didnt you at least list it for 99p,that's still free:w00t:

This is a handy tool once you've weighed the items,it gives you all the choices of postage and their costs.

Either or, i don't mind

sold a load of stuff the other week. used collect +. costs £3.99 flat rate under 10kg.drop off to local shop and can get picked up from a local shop on the other side. best to put this in the advert though as some people get a bit arsey having to travel a few hundred yards to get a parcel, personally i think its easier than having to wait in all day for a parcel!

seller paying postage is slowly being phased in across ebay , watch out.
