I bought some decals on ebay from a french ebayer I have dealt with a number of times in the past "virateminature". The postal charges are scandalous so I decided to addd two roof rack kits to get better value from the p&p . Imagine my surprise when he tells me he can add one roof rack but not the other because apparently one is denominated in sterling and the other in euros. Both bought at the same time - so it was not as if I went back in on ebay.co.uk. Is there a con here apart from getting stung for extra postal charges? I have come across it before. I went back into his ebay list and bought a euro one and asked him to add it and cancel the "sterling" transaction. I await his reaction.

Bought from him once as he did the Chris Lord Monte Sunbeam under his own label and postage was an issue for me as well. As a rule the French guys are bit more realistic than their Italian cousins though who on average appear to want at least £10.00 postage standard airmail for one set of decals!

Trust he will come round to your way of thinking.

I agree postage costs from him and other french and italian sellers are top end but i always check what its really cost them when the letters arrive and there isnt much margin in it for him. I think ebay generally insists/strongly encourages registered/tracked postage even for low value items and that's where the costs come from.

I have been very quick to voice my displeasure at all things ebay and post when they go wrong. This is a post that comes from the bemused section. A box arrived this morning measuring 25cm x 24cm x 38cm and it felt empty. I proceeded to open it and it looked empty inside apart from a black bin liner. In the black bin liner was a 2020 Rally Monte Carlo Historique poster I bought - it measured 40 x 60 but rolled into a cylinder with a rubber band which is the norm. The box could have been kicked all the way from France to Ireland and I believe the poster would have survived !!!

Slight overkill but better safe than sorry!
