unfortunately alot of ebayers are stingy sad bar stewards, stingy coz we all want a deal, sad because we should have something better to do and bar stewards because they just can be, "avoid" etc, what a git. "10% idiot rate" don't think so, maybe 50%!
unfortunately it's not just private sellers, it can be shops aswell.
i work in the trade and when i post stuff if it's bikes, frames, forks or relatively large items i charge 10 to 15 pounds depending on securicor's weight limit but small items are posted royal mail 1st class recorded or sometimes silver delivery if it's more expensive stuff, this can cost anything from Â£1 to Â£5 and i guess on the item that i'm selling as to what i list as the postage on the listing, this i consider includes the jiffy bag, driving to the post office, paying to park(!) and standing in a queue for f*ck knows how long among the "where's my f**king giro moosh!!??" idiots down there!
what i'm saying is the post might well seem expensive but sometimes it's hassle for the seller, not that it justifies "avoid" feed back, that's well tossy.
on a personal note i bought some forks from a shop about a month ago, listing finished on a saturday night, i paid for them next day coz they were open, thought they'd post them on monday so i'd recieve them on tuesday bearing in mind Â£9 postage, but i recieved them on friday in a jiffy bag with no reciept at all. i just wouldn't do that! if you phone and there is no reciept given how do you know what you've been charged? got my reciept after a further 2 weeks after i left them good feedback (staight away) and even though i thought there service was sh*t (slow posting, expensive post,no reciept, badly packaged) i left good feedback for no other reason than getting good feedback myself and luckily there was no damage to the forks even though they were hanging out of the jiffy bag!
some people are just pri*ks! and you just have to live with it.
one of these days i'll just go on a mental stabbing mission and sort the worlds problems out!!!!
arsey ebayers beware!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
