Free postage beware

Like if this guide is helpful
Buyers beware when looking for free postage - Ebay are now only offering sellers a discount on fees iFn they offer free postage.
What does this mean for you. It means sellers include the postage costs into the cost of the goods - how does this work.

Say an item used to sell for £2 with £1 postage and then 50p postage for each extra item you added to the order. -
You buy 1 it costs £3 - buy 2 it cost £5.5 (2+2+1+.5 therefore equals £2.75each).

How does it now work with free postage
Seller charges £3 with free postage (£2 + they incorporate the postage £1) - buy 1 you pay £3 but buy 2 and pay £6 (now still 3 each), so you are 50p worse off!

The buyer is worse off if using the free postage option if buying more than one item and where the seller used to offer postage discount for multiple items.

So don't just go for the cheapest with free postage - look for those sellers who offer postage discounts for multiple items!!!!
