Since the post office has raised prices we have been paying the price here on ebay. Selling a cheap item used to be a good way of clearing junk and making a few quid on the side. However, we now get charged (by ebay) for listing the item (fair enough) then charged a % of the sale THEN paypal takes a cut for using it. After that you have the postal costs.
Now most if not all sellers make the buyer pay for postage. However, if the item is only worth say 50p then who is going to pay £2+ on postage? I only put items to sell on here now that will be cheap to post otherwise the buyer incurrs too much postage cost which is not fair for buyers and it also discourages people to bid with a high postage price.
Does anyone agree with this? Thanks!
