Bah, SWMBO just asked me to list an old bridesmaid's dress her mother
found at the back of a wardrobe.

So we took pictures of it, wrote a description, carefully packed it up &
calculated the postage (�5.15) then realised that ebay brought in
maximum postage rates of �4 for the wedding clothes category yesterday.

I'm all in favour of avoiding rip off postage rates but setting a
maximum less than the cost of posting the item? Not helpful.

That'll be a bridesmaids dress going on gumtree.

hmmmph.

Use a starting price including postage you're happy to sell it for or
instead of selecting "Flat: same cost to all buyers" select "Courier: heavy
and bulky items" then specify you're own postage.
