I know this has been covered numerous times, but I needed to rant...
I won four lots from a seller (other non-SW vintage toy lines); two lots on one day and then two more a few days later. By the time I won the second couple I asked for the seller to combine postage as one items was just a small accessory they could put in with the other larger item at no extra cost. At this point I had assumed the first pair of items had been posted as they made no mention of being able to put all four in together and the first lot of postage would have easily covered everything.
Roll on today and all four items arrive in one package costing them a grand total of £4. They had charged me over £13! £13 would have been fine if they had used plenty of protective packaging and box, and I don't have an issue if the postage charge is a quid or two over, but that is taking the piss! So having messaged them requesting a partial refund they claimed they needed that extra to cover bubble wrap and petrol cost. Fuck off! The bubble wrap was used and I doubt their nearest post office is 20 miles away. And ebay are useless bag of tits who won't/can't/don't want to do anything about this sort of profiteering.
To add insult to injury they thought one layer of bubble wrap and a used jiffy bag is substantial enough protection for 30+ year old plastic. So one part is damaged. It's really not worth the hassle and agro of opening a claim on the damage but it really rubs salt in the wound. And I've been having such a good run with ebay lately, knew it couldn't last.
