P + P COSTS!

Very quick reminder - watch the sellers P+P costs - these tend to be forgotten when bidding (clearly I need to read the small print better!) As a good example - I bid and won an item which cost me £6.00. Bit of a bargain really. Only when I was paying the invoice I noticed the seller was charging £5.00 for their 'standard rate'' P+P (and it was a skirt I was buying!). The item arrived today - in a scrappy black bin liner, sent second class (66p). The profit made on the P+P (which isn't used towards Paypal charges) meant the seller was making a profit from P+P where they may have lost on the item cost - obvious,(and a bit sneaky) I know, but with the best will in the world, it's SO easy to overlook!
