I, like most people, don't like it when I feel I am being charged excessive P&P. I have therefore set out below a break-down of my P&P charges.
- Postage; this is the literal cost of postage at second class signed for unless otherwise stated, for low-cost items I send them 2nd class standard.
- Packaging; the cost of envelopes, paper, sellotape, labels etc.
- The selling fee (a percentage of the final buying price - see ebay listing price guide).
- Any photography costs & misc; this may include the cost of props etc. If a prop can be used over and over, I add a nominal amount to all items to spread its cost.
- Ebay, in its wisdom charge sellers 10% on the postage charge, so this needs to also be factored in.
The purchase price of a product is therefore based solely upon its cost to me & what I want back on it - so I can go out and restock my personal wardrobe (we all change with age).
All my auction items are the result of a clear out of either my wardrobe or my mother's wardrobe, I am not a professional seller.
To give you an example, if I sell something for £5 (including P&P), I get back the princely sum of 23p. So please bear this in mind when making an offer on my 'buy it now' items.
I hope you find this useful. Thank you very much for considering my products.
