I must admit, I don't actually mind an eBay seller covering their actual postage and packing costs (and if that includes covering what they have to give to the thieves at eBay/PayPal, then I'm not bothered by that). So long as they aren't charging me a "service fee" for going to the post office, I'm OK with real costs being levied.

Often with international sales, I hit the "Standard International Flat Rate" scam. Unless I know that the flat rate will be more or less accurate to the real cost, I just won't bid on principal. I also won't buy anything that uses eBay GSP as that is a total scam (and eBay often opens and re-packs the parcels [with no packing] to reduce size and weight).

Thanks laurel. I kind of thought the seller was overcomplicating matters. In fact, it may be perfectly genuine --they may themselves be making this far more complicated than it actually is. I tried to explain this to them...

It is slightly embarrassing quibbling over a few bucks, but I (I'm guessing like a few of us) like a book price, & I like a postage price i.e. I like them to be clearly separate in my mind. So, for me, the postage price has to be pretty close to the actual price. I like it to be clear what I paid for the item itself.

You are not confused but you are being confused!

You are absolutely correct and why wouldnt the seller then just add alittle to the price/opening bid. Absolute rubbish and the sceptic would say the seller is merely trying to charge extra costs in hope you dont see it!

As a seller i always refund postage overpayments as should be the case.

Must admit had a similar issue with over charged postage. When i queried why he had overcharged by 33% and wouldnt refund he stamped his feet and told me to stop being so tight! Nice!
