Daytona 675


icon18 Jan 2018 23:56
Just sold a pair of Daytona 675 discs in mint condition for £90. They charged me 10% of the final value fee which is bad enough when they also charge 4% on the paypal transaction but they now have the gaul to charge 10% final value fee on the f!$%ing postage!!!!

What rubs even more salt into the wounds is I took an offer £10 lower than I'd have liked just to shift them and paid £8.19 including full value insurance and a signature at the other end to make sure the item actually reached the buyer not the £6.50 I'd charged them. Total value for a final price of £96.50 I received after postage is £75.17!!!!

Robbing cnuts!

If they carry on going the way they are, they will kill their own business, purely through greed.

I hope.

Na, we used to have trading standards for this kind of thing but since football decided to ruin the world's economy and pay the people off that control trading standards, any big corporate company can do and charge what they want and people pay it. The end

I've been criticised in the past by customers for postal charges then marked down by e-bay for those very same charges

Not many customers appreciate that e-bay charge a 10% fee on postage and to be fair, they shouldn't be. They (e-bay) are not providing the postal service so they should butt out

It's getting to be a right old faff :frown:

If it weren't for eBay you would still have them in the back of the garage, unless you wanted to take a stall at an auto jumble.
You need to work out the fees before you list an item.

I sold a seat and other panels over Xmas, eBay gave the buyer a £60 discount on some promotion they were running but I still got the full amount (except for the fees which were far less than £60).:thumbup::thumbup:

This is true as in selling an item for £1 with £100 P&P so e-bay only got a £0.10 pence cut on the deal

I'm really enjoying being a punter at autojumbles at the moment. However, several of the stallholders that I spoke to at Kempton Park today complained of being f-ing freezing.

One day I might take a stall at one myself and attempt to sell back all the stuff that I've bought and never used. :lol:

Kempton.....Too cold an too expensive:thumbdown:

I used to love going to autojumbles mainly for tools and consumables, I find nowadays eBay is much cheaper for the same items even allowing for postage.
I think a lot of the stall holders buy their stock from eBay.

Craic is how the Irish spell crack. Neither spelling indicates any cocaine content, but the Irish version does emphasise that we are not talking about a fissure in the plaster on the wall.

Look at your invoice it says VAT Luxembourg. I complained to my MP about it she did an investigation as she was not happy about it. Turns out EBAY UK is registered in Luxembourg. Good old EU rules so ALL VAT paid by UK sellers on the fees EBAY UK charges goes to Luxembourg. Turns out lots of on-line companies do this, freedom of the EU for companies to have headquarters in low tax EU countries. My MP does not like it that's one of the reasons She and I are anti EU.
I don't like paying tax but when I do I want it left here not sent abroad.:sad::sad::sad:
