It's happened to almost all sellers. An auction is 50/50. It's a risk you take with the R1.00 auctions. The trick is not ripping off buyers for shipping to try make up the loss. Some sellers try that... Never works out well. If you are worried you can list with a reserve or starting price higher than R1.00. Takes the risk out.

You can also try the new "Make an Offer" functionality on Buy Now items. It allows for you to set a fixed price and allow offers from potential buyers. this has much less risk making losses. It is almost a hybrid between an Auction and Buy Now.

And as Free Soul Styles mentioned...it is very important not to make buyers feel they are being ripped off on shipping.

Oh, my yes! Sometimes it is rainbows and lollipops and other times it is a beating, but it is a great way to start out on BoB... to get your 'name' out there and get some positives under your belt... with less costly items.
