I've seen a bike listed on eBay Italy and the seller has got the shipping costs to the UK at the top of the listing as €50.

In the actual listing they state 'please contact the seller for international shipping costs'.

IMHO €50 seems a bit low for shipping a complete bike to blighty.

Does anyone know / have experience of If I bought the bike (it's on a buy it now at quite a low price) would the seller have to ship at €50 or could they under eBay rules hike the price up ?

many thanks

Paul

just contact the seller and ask for a quote. I think it will cost a lot more than EUR50 from Italy

Being a tight northerner I'd like to hold him to €50 if I could so do not want to contact him until I know where I stand as it will give me some leverage.

if it's what I think it will be, he'll take the hit with bad feedback, I would, and you don't get the bike

I'm not too worried about that. The price he's got these bikes on at it's worth the punt.

Just had a reply back from the seller. He says he'll ship it for €48.

I'm amazed - I thought it would be more than that.
