Just a quick note to make you aware of certain sellers tricks to increase the price of their goods.
1. When sellers list an item but you must get approved first and when you click the link it takes you to another page in their ebay shop where the original item is listed at a higher price. If you do not keep your eyes open and read every page you may get lumbered with the additional cost.
2. Even though a lot of items have optional insurance some buyers mark it down as being compulsary and this again increases the price.
3. Well VAT is not really a trick but if it isn't included in the sellers price just be aware of how much the item will actually cost you if you are bidding on it.
Hope this helps.
