Amazon - How to deliver a book watch

    • Thread Starter

    Right, I've got a book from the 1st semester of uni that I won't need again so im wantin to sell it on amazon. Thing is, I've looked at the prices that people are asking for the same book and they all charge £2.75 for the delivery charge. But can't they send it using different methods eg royal mail/DHL. Is £2.75 the amount that it costs to send a typical study book by 2nd class Royal Mail? What happens if the actual delivery of the book costs me more than what the buyer has paid such as £4. Essentialy I'm asking how to send the book.

    Cheers peeps.

    You can't change the P&P price, it's set by Amazon. It's never exactly right and can be completely different.

    My advice would be to take the book to the post office, get them to weigh it up and everything and check the price of sending it 1st class. If you don't want to use amazon's price you could always try selling it on Ebay or another site
