Do you want to list your item as 'No Postage: Local Pick Up Only'?

If so, here's a Guide based on the latest incarnations of the listing tools:

Easy Sell SYI Form

The Easy Sell SYI is not available on but if you list on or it is and you would have the option to use it.

You can't configure the Easy Sell form to enable this option properly, because you can't 'turn off' the 'Post To' Location. So although your listing will show local collection only as the only payment method, the Post To Location will always show as UK/US, Worldwide or Custom Locations. This could mean a bidder may think that you are willing to post the item and bid on that assumption. You should use the Advanced Sell SYI form if the only postal option you want is Local Collection Only.

If you really want to proceed with the Easy Sell SYI:

In Section 5: Set a price and P&P details, press the drop-down arrow in the 'Postage' field and change to ' Collection in Person' and put the value of $/£.0.00 in the 'Postage Cost to the Buyer' field.

Sell Your Item SYI Form

You no longer have to configure the options from 'single flat rate cost' to '3 domestic services' as previously.

Simply click the drop down arrow in the ' Give buyers shipping details' section and change from

Flat: same cost to all buyers to
No postage: Local pick up only

Which will now give you this screen:

Complete the listing and press the ' List your item 'button AFTER checking the fees.

Turbo Lister 2

In Postage Options, click the drop down arrow and change from

Flat: same cost to all buyers to
No postage: Local pick up only

which then becomes:


Sadly, you can no longer list without PayPal as a payment option, even if it's an item for collection only.

Additionally, you can't refuse (within eBay rules) to accept PayPal if the buyer wants to pay that way.

So if it's an expensive item, you should consider not listing on eBay. You cannot prove delivery to the buyer - and so would automatically lose a PayPal 'Item Not Received' claim, or a 'charge-back' claim.

If you do go ahead and make the sale, it might also be an idea to have someone with you when the buyer collects, or meet them in a public place.

Print out the eBay Invoice twice. Give one the buyer and ask them to sign the other one, which you've marked 'Sold as seen' on. Keep this one for yourself.
