EBay in the UK have a policy that says that you are not permitted to proffit unduly from shipping and packaging charges, nor are you permitted to load shipping charges as a means of avoiding paying eBay's fees. So there quite deffinately is a way of raising complaint when excessive shipping charges are levied against you.



Mars - I had exactly that same issue recently....


** expired eBay auction **


The seller front end loaded the shipping fees, which I did not notice unlit I placed my bid. Unfortunately, as I was in the last 12 hours, eBay would not permit me to retract my bid. I asked the seller to correct his error in shipping costs and highlighted that they were not in line with eBay policy, and I filed a seller non-performance complaint with eBay. Turns out the seller wanted me to pay for her/him to take a taxi from their house to the post office, wait for her, and then catch a taxi back, and that the shipping was to be a not unreasonable 10 euros.



eBay's telephone support tell me not to complete. Their backroom boys send me an e-mail threatening repocussions if I do not, and the upshot was I get to leave negative FB, and eBay send me a £20 voucher for having been such an arse about the whole thing.



So you can win. You just need to follow eBay's policy and advice, and even if they get it wrong they'll say sorry with vouchers.

It is why I always asked for how much will be combine shipping for multiple items. Even if I loose some interesting items because the seller didn't answer. I have this problem one times with TonyaGames (hum...) and she wanted to charge 110$ handling fees... Never again.

The best think is to always buy to an Acaeum member isn't it? ;)

Correct, five endless quest books and two novels.  Nothing special there.

They may be common, but they are only a dollar apiece.

Seren Ironhand:




** expired eBay auction **




Apparently the seller feels the need to explain that it was previously purchased on Ebay from hamilcar at some point.  However the seller must have removed it from the shrinkwrap since as we all know, everything hamilcar sells is in shrink.  :wink:

The copies of this that I have bought from hamilcar were not in shrink -  I don't think they came that way.

Guys....seriously.....it was just a joke.  Thus the smiley face with the winky eye.  Dont know and dont care if Seren Ironhand was ever in shrink or not.  But since it seems that almost all of the items hamilcar sells are in shrink I just thought it would be fun to make a little joke out of it.

Apparently no one got it.  :oops:
