DON'T GET RIPPED OFF ON VINYL P&P COSTS....

Like if this guide is helpful

With reference to EBAY now allowing P&P to be charged for Vinyl Items. It is laudable, as long as sellers like myself can charge a legitimate amount. BUT do NOT let some of the Sellers still rip you off in regards to P&P costs.

For an instance: There is one seller I noticed, early morning, 3rd March at this time, who is charging  £4.51p  for ONE 45rpm!!!, but it's only to be delivered to the UK from IRELAND?. I can send a 45 for £2.99 all over the world, using a Mailer & TWO Stiffeners,and including to Ireland, and I am relatively certain that Ireland's Postage costs aren't much more than the UK, if at all?.

Most European Countries charge around the same on a pro rata Euro basis as we do in in the UK in Sterling, so WHY £4.51GBP for ONE 45rpm I ask?, as I found one while looking at the Site, and there was one 45rpm I was looking for, but I quite understandably baulked at the P&P costs, then when I looked in this sellers COMPLETED LISTINGS File, as we all should do as well as their individual feedback too, he hasn't sold a lot before the recent few days or so, I wonder why?.

Although I wanted 45rpm's, the same applies in principle to LP's and all other Music Formats also....

WATCH OUT AS THERE ARE STILL SELLERS TRYING TO "TAKE YOU TO THE CLEANERS" WITH HIGH POSTAGE/PACKAGING COSTS and we honest sellers are tarred with the same brush at times.

My EBAY ID is westhighlandscotty if you wish to see the small-as-possible amounts I charge my buyers myself after over 9 years on EBAY....All Vinyls I send in the Mail WORLDWIDE, are sent IN SPECIALLY BOUGHT MAILERS WITH AT LEAST TWO STIFFENERS all bought from COVER33 in England.....{check their Mailers cost as the service is excellent too}
