Another seller to block on eBay.

Postby StarWarsFan » Wed Dec 14, 2016 6:49 pm

Purchased some 5 small figures from eBay. Postage was over £5 put me off a bit but though ok have won at starting price so will over look it. A day or so later they were marked as dispatched and another figure came up. Put a best offer on and they accepted it but the postage was £2.80 for a stormtrooper again a little high and was annoyed that would have to pay for 2 lots of postage. But when the large package arrived they had added the Stormtrooper in with them. They sent them in a envelope in a bit of bubble rap so not the best packaging and the postage said 3.35. So asked if they would do a partial refund especially since had paid for 2 lots of postage for 1 parcel and here is the reply:

Honestly why do some sellers have to so greedy wouldn't dream of charging that sort of money for small items. Yes its annoying when you sell things for a small amount but thats the luck of the game have sold items for 99p starting price but don't try to get more money by overcharging on postage.


He has apologized and sent a partial refund.

Open up case against him and you'll get a partial refund.

This is a real bug bear of mine too :x

Don't see the problem here? He sent the refund on being asked didn't he? Even apologised for overcharging? Not sure I'd block him.

And to be fair, if postage was high to begin with you could have asked him up-front to reduce the charge. If anything this has worked in your favour: the high postage charge WOULD have put other bidders off, you've achieved a refund after the event and so probably got them cheaper than you would have done had the postage cost been correctly listed at the time.

The original post has been edited to confirm a refund has been issued, the sellers initial response was basically 'fuck off'.

Ah, OK. Well that's just rude and, in short, what a twat.

Would have helped to leave it up, though so this thread makes a little more sense :D

What you do need to keep in mind though is that ebay charge 10% on postage and PayPal charge also, also packaging isn't free and then there the trip to the post office, people see the postage cost of 3.30 and think that's it but it isn't by a long shot

I agree with Lindo here as well, although this seller messed up by combining postage when he had already marked the first package as dispatched. So they have blown their foot of and that is the main issue here.

But also you have to remember that it's not always collectors selling to collectors especially on eBay. So when a seller who has a part of there business on eBay they are going to cover all the costs through postage. It's not as if the postage cost is kept secret until after you have won the item and then bang they make it up.

To be honest I think it's a bit harsh the stick the seller is getting here, but still I can't defend the seller for the fact they lied about dispatching the item and then combined postage when they shouldn't have.

Very sorry Lindo, it was automatic correction on the iPad. Really not intentional or my fault.

yeh i understand mate, theres no need for a seller to be rude, but I have had issues in the past with people saying I had over charged postage, people do not realise that the cost isn't just whats printed on the postage label.
