nope would just further complicate what constitutes a bump. I see it as part of the negotiation process and any discussion relating to postage should not be classed as a bump.

I think the OP is enquiring when the seller doesn't state either way whether it should constitute as a bump.

as long as there is a selling price then as I said before I see it as being part of the negotiation process.

I'd probably say the seller should identify the p&p cost. The price of the item on offer can always be negotiated. Typically we see offers that involved one party being asked to reduce the cost of p&p, e.g. send 1st class instead of SD/RD. Unfortunately this exposes the sender of the item and not the buyer.

I've noticed this creeping in more and more with FS/FT not having P&P listed and because of the nature of the forum where it appears no-one actually reads threads you get the same postage question again and again plus with all the how much is P&P questions you are getting legitimite threads where people have made the effort to work everything out before hand being bumped down by this.

even if you explicitly include how much postage is you are still going to get questions asking about it. i.e collect plus is only £3 blahblah.

so then what because you never listed that particular method would that question now count as a bump. It all gets rather murky and I don't see the problem as long as an overall price is stated.

I'd like to see everything listed as inclusive of postage.

The buyer should be aware of this and set asking price accordingly.

Not (entirely) true. You are covered by 2nd class (with proof of postage) up to around £30 I think, so depending on the item that may be fine. I always used to send recorded and ask for recorded, but 9 times out of 10 I was out when the post came so had to do a 3 mile round trip to the main PO. Obviously if you have a high value item which needs posting you are going to go with special delivery........
