Re: Ebay: Global Postage Programme

I can understand it too laurel. My guess is, if you asked, they'd cite insurance etc. The problem is this charge, in the example above, is more than the value of the item (--unless that quote is assuming checkout at the Buy-it-now price.) Either way, when you use USPS (I guess) or Royal Mail, insuring a book to value (& tracking) does not currently increase the cost of the posting to levels near the value of said item.

Literally every item listed using this Global Postage Programme is going to have no international bidders, if people understand the detail. This is a big market (assuming you list internationally) for a seller to loose. And just damn annoying for collectors who cast the net beyond their own small shores...
