POSTAGE CHARGES ~ dont get ripped off with high posting charges.
Australia Post had another cost rise 1/7/14
Unless you do alot of posting, most people are unaware of the actual charges by AUSTRALIA POST. I am dissapointed that some sellers are charging excess as this is against EBAY policy - should this happen to you I urge you to report the page to trust and safety so we can stop the over charges out there. In saying this one is allowed to include a reasonable handling fee and packaging costs (i.e. ring box, bubble wrap, foam, their time to fill out forms, package and get in their car to go to the post office)
At LittleGems88 we do not charge for our time to pack, or do labels, or post nor do we charge for the foam peanuts, bubble wrap or boxes used.
As of the 1st of July eBay now charge the seller a fee based on postage paid ~ e.g. $8 postage the seller pays a fee of 64cents
Buying multiple items from 1 seller ~ do not pay for any items until the seller has a chance to send you a combined postage invoice so you and the seller will save money
Within Australia ~ Australia Post work the price of postage on both size & weight.
Regular letter ~ 70cents + envelope
Regular Small Parcel (up to 500grams) ~ $7.84 + plus box + plus packing materials + time to pack, print labels, physically post + eBay fee on postage
It then costs extra to have signature on delivery.
Regular Large Parcel (up to 3kg) ~ $12.73 + plus box + plus packing materials + time to pack, print labels, physically post + eBay fee on postage
Express ~ 500g ~ $10.55 + box + packing materials + time to pack, print labels, physically postage + eBay fee on postage
Express ~ 3kg ~ $14.80 + box + packing materials + time to pack, print labels, physically postage + eBay fee on postage
Postage from Australia to overseas ~ It gets a bit confusing on this one depends on size and weight and destination. This one really can't been priced out until the weight and size and destination are known.
USA Customs have now introduced a surcharge of $9 for all parcels weighing over 500grams.
