99p and 1.17 postage or 2 pounds and free postage?
EBay is driving me nuts at the moment. I'm listing a lot of small items; keyrings, jewellery, cards, stationery,. My default is to ask for 99p plus £1.17 postage which covers me for the use of a padded envelope to send the keyrings and jewellery in. Remembering the days of car boot sales, everyone thought 99p was a bargain . Why else do pound/dollar/euro stores do so well? People think they're getting a bargain, that's why. So why does eBay keep suggesting that I offer my items with free postage?! If I list them at anything over 99p to cover the cost of offering free postage they won't sell because people will no longer think they're getting a bargain. If I offer things for 99p and free postage I'm making a loss on every single item because it'll cost £1.17 to post them. So what would your choice be, as a potential buyer?
I prefer to pay 99p and postage its still a bargain
I hate being stung for postage charges, you should include the cost of postage in the price
Youre selling off junk. Why should you even cover your costs?
