I am new to Ebay but am astounded at the blatant overcharging for postage costs.
I have been looking for a hard drive for an Xbox 360. Having worked for Royal Mail I know that the postage on this item will be less than £2 and allowing £1 for packing total cost should be no more than £3. I have found only 2 sellers quoting £3 for postage on this particular item and the average is more than £6.
Personally, I will not bid for anything where the postage costs are a rip off and anybody who pays these exhorbitant rates has more money than sense.
The only way to stop this nonsense is for people to stop bidding where the postage costs are out of proportion and force these stupid costs down.
