You must take into consideration all the handling costs and packing costs that are assosciated with the price you see for P&P....
Do parcels magic their way to the Post Offiice?
The Post Office I Use is over 7 miles away so thats a 14 mile round trip each time I need to post my customers parcels ... and giving the rising cost of Petrol & Diesel these days i have to take all that into account.
Then there is the packaging to take into consideration
Plastic mail sacks/Brown Paper/Bubble Wrap/Labels/Marker Pens/Tissue Paper/Compliment Slips printing ink ... it all adds up
Boxes .. Ok so you think youve been ripped off and paid too much P&P bacause a box has been re-used ... someone had to take a trip to the local supermarket to get the box in the first place ....
If you find someone that is listing a brand New nintendo wii for example with a Buy it Now of 99p but with Postage costs of £600 you know that they are trying to evade paying the correct Final Value fees for the sale to Ebay by compensating with high P&P. This is against Ebay rules and my advise is to report the seller to Ebay
I do Not disgusise my Postage & Handling costs ... they are in print for you to see .. If you dont agree with my Postage Costs dont Bid ... Simple!
sorry but i charge 2.99 to 4.99 per parcel argos charge 6.99 for 1 item
