With the influx of Overseas sellers offering items on ebay Australia at cheap prices, it has really hurt REAL Australian Sellers in their sales. I sometimes am questioned on the postage charges that i display for my items as some say they might be excessive. But the fact of the matter is a Buyer is always going to look at the item cost, rather than the postage cost which makes it unfair to Australian Sellers selling the same product as overseas buyers because in most cases the item sale price (not including postage cost) will always be cheaper which is going to make a potential buyer much more likely to click on an item to view its description.
That is why i dont think it is fair that Fair Dinkum Australian Sellers should be accused of Excessive Postage charges because it is the only way to compete against Chinese/Hong Kong Sellers.
The main problem being that we here are on
EBAY AUSTRALIA and i dont understand why by default that items sent from overseas should be included in searches. If Aussie Buyers want to get a cheap item from overseas, they should have to modify the search in order to see these items.
I think if this was enforced you would see a lot less postage inflation which is going to make a better EBAY AUSTRALIA!
The price of the items i sell work out to be very competitve in most cases so please dont overlook Australian Sellers!
