Recommended Posts

I won an auction on BOB You've won the auction 32991600 sold by jennyj (no ratings).

When i asked the seller what the postage will be imagen my surprise when she said R1000 .I did ask what postage would be when i bid and no answer was supplied .I informed the seller that BOB has rules to govern postage and that i have no intention of paying R1000 postage this is just the sellers way of making money off crazy postage and doing BOB in because the price was not what they expected what would you do

i honestly think i would drop dead of sheer horror if i were quoted R1000 postage for anything :wtf: after i had come back to life though i would phone BoB & inform them of this ridiculous postage which is what i think you should do.

This is by far the worst case of overcharging for postage that I've heard of so far, there's no way she can get away with this.

Please inform BoB so that they can deal with this issue.

Once again, this is a good reason to make postage compulsory when completing a listing, it's not rocket-science for the seller to do so, so there's no excuse.

LOL!!! Exactly what voldermort said! R1000 for postage would be enough to turn my hair grey overnight!

I think for both but that was not made clear i offered R300 for combined which is what other artist have charged me with works of a similar size and make up which i think is fair .

 

The seller was trying to include packaging petrol and time if other artist can give me an idea of what would be fair i would be interested to know bearing in mind i did only bid on the art the rest should have been factored in by the seller

Size and weight would indicate a postage charge of no more than about R250, this seller is making up for the loss at auction, she cannot hold you to that "quote" as it was not stipulated or agreed upon. This seller is taking a chance, no question about it.:suspicious:

Hi Kyle2

 

Thanks for your input i am a great supporter of local artist and do not sell for profit and do not want to start making there lives more difficult than need be so i am trying to do the right thing as buyers already have a bad enough name with some of there actions toward sellers

Had a quick look at the dimensions, and phoned my courier, they said it should be around the R80 mark for Air, but if that's risky then the same amount, but longer on road. With R50 for insurance excluded..

 

So no, I've got no idea where that amount comes from!!

 

Heck, tell the person you'll send your own courier and then just arrange something.. Add R20 for packaging to be nice, but that's a huge amount!
