    High cost of delivery by sellers

    If the postage cost the seller (Hypothetically R120 including packaging) then he has no right to charge you R220 I am not sure if Bidorbuy challenge sellers on high postage costs but if I was you I would complain

    ZAR vs Krugerrand (Obverse)

    The refreshed and updated dye used for the 2017 Krugerrand. The much larger 50oz dye expresses much more pronounced detail in the lower cheek and forehead, but the third fold below the eye has V'd out. picture source SAmint brochure:
  9. GROOVIE COINS

    ZAR vs Krugerrand (Obverse)

    The picture of the 1967 dye which contains the third fold under the eye (source SA mint brochure):
  10. Good day Today I saw a listing for a ZAR crown that was in mint state condition and was immediately taken by the level of detail in the obverse, which I didn't expect as I'm not very familiar with ZAR coinage. I've always assumed the bust we are seeing on the krugerrand is exactly what is seen on the ZAR coinage. Since I have not held any mint state ZAR coins and inspected them physically, all I'm going on are photos which can vary depending on lighting. I'm I correct in saying the level of detail on Kruger's bust has softened since the introduction of the krugerrand? It was said with the 50th anniversary the design was refreshed using modern technology techniques which would bring out much more detail, but to me it appears certain details have been lost. In the MS ZARs I'm seeing three folds under the eye, where as with the current bullion coins the third and smallest fold is almost entirely lost and transforms into a almost V shape. Interestingly if you look at the 1967 dye used for the first krugerrand the third tiny fold is visible. Another thing that I'm seeing (and this could be my imagination or lighting of the photos) is that it appears there is a fold on the lower cheek (Not to be confused with the mouth and nose wrinkle or fold on the upper cheek). Then to a lesser extent, it appears the frown wrinkle has become less pronounced and softened out ever so slightly. I would have thought when the design was updated in 2017 for the bullion coin, attention would have been given to these differences, but it seems like the reverse received more focus. I hope the sellers don't mind me using their photos for this example. regards Robert

    High cost of delivery by sellers

    Goodness, the seller has not made me pay for two postages this is their standard postage for on parcel/package Containing 3 items. Let me try again It was only one Parcel/Package containing the 3 items The first Courier Guy Packet i presume was used as packaging material - i suppose Bubble-wrap would be asking to much. This was then placed into a second Courier Guy Packet and sent to me. So only one Package containing 3 Items - I really hope you understand this now Below is the sellers standard postages, i have marked my option Red. i resurrected this thread to bring attention to high and underhanded postage costs, if anything i hope that i have achieved that.

    High cost of delivery by sellers

    No Rodney I am not saying that R220 is justified for sending both parcels together. I said if they were sent separately then R220 would be correct. You are the one who did not clarify what the postage was all about. If this seller has made you pay for 2 postages then report it to Bidorbuy.I would never do that.

    High cost of delivery by sellers

    I didn't even know about these options. It seems like this blanket Shipping cost is the main issue, E.G. you buy a 0.5kg tniy item for R50 and shipping is R165. From the same store you can get a 1.5kg not so tiny item for R300 and the shipping is R165.

    High cost of delivery by sellers

    Firstly, if you read correctly i said some seller on BOB are still charging R99 for shipping, nowhere did i say it was less than R99 Secondly, it was one package. two bags, one inside the other. One whole package under 1kg, from the same seller, at the same time together. (not sure how else to exp[lain this. If you condone the charge of R220 for these items (as i have received), then that is your right, i was never telling you cannot charge what you want to charge, i was merely stating that sellers are making profit off postage. You are correct that i should have checked the shipping before the time, that was my mistake, will not do that again. In saying that, you are giving sellers the right to charge what ever they want IF they get away with it? Shifting the blame is taking from the wrong doing that is happening.
