The seller used the term P&P quite a bit.

Yes, commonly know in North America as shipping and handling.

Also doubles as "portly and pompous" in Cougie's case ...

That's exactly the sort of neg Coug would never have gotten five years ago, as fear of mutual negative feedback would have stayed the buyer's hand.  One of the very few good things about the new feeback policy....

I was looking at his stats too.  Its interesting that for the last month, he has almost 400 positives and the 8 negatives from the same customer - only 1 disgruntled customer in the last month.  The DSRs reflect that the handling charge is still more than a number of customers like.

Negative feedback only affects your rating for 12 months. Is that right?

Hi,

he's slowly cleaning up his act. Until that guy negged him he was doing quite well.

I have been tempted to buy from him sometimes, but the things that put me off are:

1 unsure if the item will be complete (he has an odd attitude to this)
2  the screaming for immediate feedback I suspect I will get

Cheers,
Malc

that and the really heavy postage charges... I suspect his 'combined' rates may include knocking £1 off at the most...

Shame, he could probably sell even more stuff and not get the negs if he just wasn't such a rip off merchant   :roll:

In the last hour, it seems like the 30 days has now moved on so Coug has no negatives in the last 30 days and 401 positives.

I agree with Malc though:

1 unsure if the item will be complete (he has an odd attitude to this)


This is what the real issue is.  You know you are going to get hit with than just the cost of postage because it is explicitly stated in his auction and he will even tell you the cost of multiple items if you ask.

TBH, UK postage shipping out of the country is very high. There is nothing we can do about it, and it is passed on to the buyer. I have a package going to Oz that is going to cost £50 to ship. I regularly charge US customers anywhere between $12 and $18 in shipping because that's just how much it costs to buy from the UK. And I about the same and sometimes a lot more to buy from the US. So unless he's charging £30 to ship a couple of modules to the US, and not £15, then his charges are probably not that bad.

I bought some stuff from a guy in the UK -- 4 thick books (Games Workshop stuff) and the shipping to me is $55. Splitting it up would not have saved anything, since each package would have still been over the limit, and been like $30 a piece, so I'd have paid more.

So very tempted to never buy out of country... but, then I'd miss out on a lot of good stuff from good sellers, like "." and Mars.

Yeah, I remember having to ship you Tortured Souls! in three separate packages, and each of those cost $20+.

For what I normally buy this shipping is pretty much inline with what I pay from the US.  If I buy a couple of books, they fit into a Flat Rate Priority envelope for $11 or $12.  If I end up buying a few more books they go out in a Priority Flat Rate Box for $26 or $35 to Canada.

I just find his initial P&P costs over the top, but the quality of the actual item arriving would always be a concern...
