    Hi guys... I've been on an Ebay spree... but for one seller which has multeple nice items... I found out to late he/she wasn't combining items...

    so far I've won:
    1GBP + 5GBP shipping
    2GBP + 5GBP shipping

    I a want a lot more of his/her items....
    problem is... I don't have much time to ask and contact seller :( 
    and I only looked at the ebay extra's on the 3rd item I wanted :rolleyes: 

    I mean it's not that much money YET!... but I want 10to15 items!!!!
    What should I do???

    message the seller. Don't most sellers hang out on their pages when items are about to end?

    If you don't have time to ask the seller, how do you have the time to ask around here on the boards?

    Shoot them an email asking for combined shipping, seeing as you are making multiple purchase, I don't see it being a problem. If the do, maybe they don't want anymore of your business.

    Because posting on the boards is more important than actually taking care of the problem...:| lol failed.

    My thoughts exactly.


    *I don't have time to run to the store but I will run the exact same distance in the opposite direction to tell my buddy that I have no time to go to the store*

    Logic...It's a lost art.

    For future reference,

    If this happens again and time is limited. MESSAGE THE SELLER FIRST. The time you wasted posting here and waiting for replies and replying to said replies is time you didn't have.

    Message first, post second.

    the seller will ship all items together, if they didnt then you should read item pages more carefully. another lost art that people seem to not do on ebay these days. rememeber - it pays to read every part of the auction page!

    Especially shipping prices....some creative (sneaky) sellers will offer an item and a fairly cheap price and then try to stick you with super high shipping prices to make up for it.

    "no shipping combine" (read: most of my profit comes from the insane shipping fees, so don't even try)

    I remember seeing that often with Chinese sellers. :)

    If they do charge separate shipping, they better send each thing separatly.

    Does anyone know if Ebay/Paypal refund the buyers shipping as well? High shipping rates should be an automatic indication that there is something shaddy about the seller.

    If Paypal does not refund shipping, then a seller could screw the buyer by selling an item at $1 with $50 shipping. Basically when you get the bad merchandise, they refund you the $1, but keep the $50.

    If the item is disputed with a outrageous shipping amount Ebay will get involved.

    Of course,

    buying a item like that leaves yourself open to get burned.
