I won an item listed as Free Postage. On further reading that was for
'Collect in Person' and other options cost.

I think that is a bit cheeky, and the auction should be listed as
'Postage:See Description'.

I'm going to pay, as it was all there in the advert, I just feel the
seller uses it as an underhand trick to pull in more viewings.

would I be justified in leaving a neutral and saying that Seller should
use 'See Description' rather than 'Free' for postage?

Also 'Free Postage' should mean the *postage* is free. Not that its free
to collect and other options cost.

I guess the problem is eBay's layout

We list with 'Collection in Person' + 1st class recorded & as the postal
options are listed in numerical order Collection in Person shows as default
under the bid price with 'other options available underneath.

I think it should be consumed that you've not read through the details on
the listing

If it is listed as free postage but they won't post it for free then surely
it is misdescribed.
