Hi, someone has bought 2 books off me on ebay for £22 but the postage altogether comes to £12.50. They are big heavy text books but they might think that this is ridiculous. Ive always lost money on postage before but what do you think?
any way of proving to your customers that your postage cost is actually going to be that much? if so you could scan the proof and put it up with your ebay item, and make them aware of the costs
as if! it's not ridiculous at all!
postage depends on weight - tell them that!
edit - wait a sec, u said "they have bought.." - does this mean the auction has ended? (or buy it now?). Did u not state postage price on the item page?
(or did you mean it's costing you more than what you stated on the item page?)
If the latter is true, not much you can do about it lol!
i always put my postage price a bit higher than it will actually be, as you get a bit more money then
I have bought one big heavy text book on it's own with a postage of £7 before so I would have thought that 12.50 was reasonable if you are unsure go into a post office and ask them how much it would cost
Yeh the postage price is a time rediculous, its just another money making ploy, so it is important to wait till a reasonable bargain appears where the postage is reasonable. usuallly if the items total cost (incl pp) is lower than I can buy it in the shops, I just buy it otherwise I don't take a second look.
Might want to add the extra compensation cover if they're expensive books and you're going to send them by Standard Parcels.
