Just a basic petition to try and stop eBay from charging a percentage on postage costs. I have an eBay shop on which most of my sales take place. Since September 2013, eBay have started charging for postage costs... I called them to say that it was outrageous because the money that i receive for postage costs is not my money. They told me "It's to encourage people to provide free postage. But just include the postage cost in with the price of the item.." I.E. more percentage for them.
I'm not earning that money so it is completely unfair that we, as a community of eBay sellers are getting charged for that. Having a shop i make a lot of sales and the amount i get charged just for postage fees mounts up. It's greed and it needs to be stopped. I've read that what they are doing is actually illegal. All cost of royal mail post should go directly to the crown, so eBay taking a percentage of this is theft. There are hundreds of forums online full of peoples opinions and experiences. If you, or anyone you know has experienced this problem then please sign this petition. I'll be sharing it on facebook so please re post. e.t.c.
