Last Monday I sent off all I had sold from the previous night.

All feedback received bar one so I emailed them to check that everything
was alright.

Turns out that postie has attempted to deliver and now, according to the
RM website, the item is winging its way back to me.

Anyone had this before and if so, who paid for the second round of
postage?

Have had this before but I'm surprised it is coming back to you so quickly.
Was it sent by Recorded or Special delivery? Was it carded?

I believe stuff gets returned via Belfast so it can take some time (weeks)
to make the return journey.

With the stuff that we sold the postage was minimal so it was no big deal
for us to pay the second lot of postage, and it impressed the customer no
end!

I presume by "last Monday" petrolcan meant the 16th
Signed For (Recorded) is returned just after 1 week
Special is 3 weeks

Monday last week. It was recorded delivery and the seller claims they
weren't carded.

Well, postage for this is £4 which, in itself, is not a lot but by the
time ebay and paypal fees come out I would be out of pocket to the tune
of £3.50 (if I paid second lot of postage).

I've offered the buyer a 50:50 on the second postage so will await their
response.

I did. I should've been clearer.
