I've just been charged by an ebay user for postage insurance of £1 on an item which only cost £4.99 incl postage anyway. I asked him and got the following reply:

"Its for insurance. We have to insure items when paying by paypal."

Is this right? I've never had it before and besides it wasn't mentioned in his listing (see following listing: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 88373&rd=1)

"Postal insurance
£1.00 Optional"

That's what it says on the add - which by my reckoning means you don't have to if you don't want.

I know it's only a quid but it's the principle really isn't it.

Maybe bring it to the attention of ebay - they might be making a air bit of money from this...
