  4. Excessive shipping fees?

    I have ALWAYS had an issue with the crazy exorbitant shipping rates. In many cases where the seller is in the same area as I, why can't I just collect??? Many cite 'security' as a reason, but this is just hogwash. I have been selling on BoB for years and have always encouraged collection if possible. There has never been any 'security' issue. Especially if the ratings are good, what is there to worry about??? The underlying reason is that ALMOST every seller that does not allow collections, profits from the shipping. I know the prices of courier and in most cases (almost all) there is no extra charge for items going into the same package. Weight is minimal. Many of these sellers are full time active internet sellers and have accounts with the courier companies. They charge triple or more the rate they pay to the courier, to customers and then add for additional items. In almost all cases if the seller in also in JHB, it is will cost me a fraction of the price to collect. Also, I get to meet the seller and see the item. An honest seller should have nothing to hide. In many cases, I accept the cost may be justified, but why do they not allow collections? I have bought furniture recently off BoB. The courier costs were around R300 to R500, when the seller in basically around the corner. I know because of past sales and also by their address on the shipment. It would have cost me less than R20 to collect the stuff with my car!!!! Why the ripoff!!!!!!!!
  5. This seems to be a no go zone for suppliers and Bid or Buy. You are quite correct that there are hidden profits for suppliers in the "additional items". My view is that this is not ethical as shipping cost should purely be the cost of using freight companies plus a small handling percentage.

  10. Bulk Upload Tool

    Hi Buggles! Thanks for reaching out. Bulkloads can be quite tricky to get right. A member of the Category Team will be in touch shortly to assist you. It sounds to me like we might need to change your region settings on your computer to make use of a comma as the list separator. If possible, please will you take a screenshot of what the sample CSV looks like when you open it (this will confirm the region settings issue above) - you can send this through to the person who contacts you. Let us know if you need anything else!

  14. Well, this coin must be near to basal condition, and must have circulated for long after the Boer War period - the date is scarce, but the general public obviously did not know it during the period The same for this coin It must have calculated for many years before someone realized that it was a scarce coin ...

  16. It must be a US term., It basically means (almost) unrecognizable, as in a Poor-1 on the Sheldon scale. The low grade Bolivia Pillar minors I have seen are usually slightly better than this but invariably damaged or corroded.

    Tester's day On September, 9 1945 the scientists of the Harvard University while testing the computer Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator have found a moth which has got stuck between the contacts of the electromechanical relay. The work they performed required some description, and the word has been found - «debugging» (literally: disposal of an insect) - and nowadays it is used to describe theprocess of identifying and eliminating bugs which cause a computer to malfunction. The removed insect was pasted into the computer log with the entry: “First actual case of bug being found”, and was then transferred to the computermuseum.
