Hello fellow shoppers

DO YOU find it a problem when you buy something from the UK, USA or AUSTRALIA cheap and then wham !!! seller's invoice arrives with P&P of $10-$28 for something you thought you got at at bargin:(                                                                                                                                     

 WELL HERE ARE 6 STEPS you can take to ensure that you get that fair standard postage

BEFORE BIDDING

  1. Check auction page for listed postage if not happy with price then this is the time to bargin & haggle 
  2.  If no P&P (postage & packaging )  ASK FOR A QUOTE at this point you can provide the seller with this postage information by including it in your message your when asking for quote i also find this an excellent time to assist in achieving that fair postage & packaging price check websites at royal airmail.com,USPS.com ,australiapost.com.au for postage rates
  3. It is mportant when you recieve P&P quote that a record of this be saved to a folder marked eg P&P quotes as proof for disputes when invoice arrive  NB this will happen so protect yourself from negative feedback
  4.   Also at stage 2 you can and should enquire about combined postage it is probably the best way to benefit from high postage costs :)

ALWAYS IF YOUR NOT HAPPY WITH POSTAGE BARGIN AND BARGIN HARD BECAUSE THATS WHY YOUR AN EBAYER :)

 here are some significant cost saving options to note :

  •  UK
  • use royal airmail international small packets world zone 2 
  • maximum weight is 2kg = GBP$20.72
  •  USA
  • USPS united states postal service is the cheapest service by far
  • NB only if you use USPS 1st class mail international parcel rate
  • maximum weight is 4 pounds =64oz =4.5kg  =US$27.50 
  • USPS priority mail international flate rate
  • maximum weight is 4 pounds =64oz =4.4kg =US$11.00
  •  AUSTRALIAPOST
  •  large letters by ordinary post seems best offer for small items
  • weight maximum is 500gm = AUS$2.45
  • /it can be rectangular in shape
  • /no larger than 260mmx360mm
  • /no thicker than 20mm
  • /is not a small letter
  •  /maximum weight 500gm
  •   regular parcel post maximum weight is 20kg here price varies depending on zones
  • NB there is also the pre-paid bags for eg 3kg postpak is great for multiple items at AUS$9.30

Disclaimer if you don't achieve the standard postage rate and a fair packaging fee try again  & try harder                                                                                                                                        

and if feel you've been ripped off or overcharged  get even with the new feedback system overtime his postage rating will reflect his unscrupulous overcharging
