IMPORTANT MESSAGE AS QUOTED BY EBAY
"Buyers can now only receive any available postage discounts
when they use the shopping basket. If you provide information
to your buyers about purchasing multiple items, make sure you direct them to
use the shopping basket to request an updated postage total”. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS
& packing. Ebay are
charging commission on p&p charges WEF 04/09/2103. As a very small business
I cannot simply absorb these so I am explaining how a typical p&p fee
the fee is £3.50- eBay & paypal charges are quoted at 13% by eBay itself
x 13% =
£0.45 From this sum the boxes
that I use cost between £0.17 & £0.53.
there is any balance it will be small and will pay for any ancillary packaging
item purchased. Any other fees will have been calculated on a similar format. I
am being very open about this, please do not penalise me for increasing costs
over which I have no control. The postage fee is known before a purchase is
made so choice can be exercised.
try and not wait until the last minute to ask questions or make offers, I
cannot guarantee to be able to respond.
will not end auctions early. If
there is a ’Buy it Now’, price, it will be advertised as such.
wasters please. If you do not pay within 5 days
or make arrangements to delay payment, an unpaid item case will be opened &
you will be blocked from buying from me again. I also reserve the right to make
a complaint to eBay about your conduct. A little communication costs absolutely
nothing. I am quite happy to wait for bidding on other items to conclude, but
you must tell me if that is what is happening. If you are still bidding
please do not pay for anything until you have finished, & I have worked out
the combined p&p price. This is important as it costs more in fees if items
are paid for individually.
post promptly upon receipt of payment & will send a message to confirm.
give a postal discount for
multiple purchases- please request a total when you have finished buying &
starting at £14.99 or more will be sent via a signed for service at my
discretion, no exception, including overseas. This is costly but I wish to
operate within the protection afforded to me by eBay. I am sorry but the
actions of a few individuals have encouraged me to adopt this stance. It’s a
shame that the honest majority have to suffer for the actions of a few. If
unsure about postage costs then please feel free to ask.

every effort to describe items accurately, and do not set out to deliberately
mislead. I am only human, sometimes I get things wrong. Please bear in mind
that subjective opinions can differ from one person to another, and I describe
items in good faith as I personally see them. Your opinion may differ, this
does not make either of us wrong it just means that we differ. If I have made a
genuine mistake then I will always do something about it.
contact me before leaving low DSR marks, no one wants them and I certainly do
not set out to achieve them. If there is a problem, I will do my very best to resolve
it. I will always leave feedback, if this is delayed then it is because I am
busy, I will get around to doing it.
