I bought this watch recently:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Very-r..._cvip=true&rt=nc

 

It is a non working junk watch but as it is a Swiss Certina lcd watch I thought it was interesting.

I paid only £0.99 for it.

The problem was the shipping costs.

I had to pay £14.00 signed for shipping.

It's a lot for a 1 pound junk but when the seller has to pay this amount...

When I recieved the watch and looked at the envelope the shipping costs were "only" £8.30

I was not amused and asked for an explanation. No answer.

After a few days I gave the seller a neutral feedback and instead of a "sorry" I got stupid comments.

I would not have a problem with paying £9.00 or £10.00 but £14.00....

 

With this post I like to give a warning to all non-UK bidders to be careful.

Look at earlier neutral/negative feedback.

Original Post

I understand how you feel 11je12je. I have run across a few of those myself. If I notice the shipping cost, right away, and if it is a ridiculous price-I will not purchase the item no matter what the item is. The shipping cost just does NOT coincide with the item at all. I only see it as an "extra" earning of money for the seller. That is absolutely wrong and buyers need to be very aware of this type of "selling'!! 

Note this postal cost:

There are many sellers on ebay of a bad character. I usually look at the value of shipment and if the value is outside of the normal value (12 ~ 16 usd) I'll not buy it.
Erik, the apakutya seller replied you saying that all shipping costs (including envelope) were described in the ad. This is not true.
It's always good to know some sellers for avoid any business in the future.

GOD SAVE AMERICA!

 

What's this? 

 

Emeralds, rubies and gold? 

 

Oh no. This is a watch! 

 

lol 

 

I even thought that the seller was an Italian. This time is a Spanish wacky.

 

T: MELINE, the shipping cost to Brazil this watch is 175 usd. Nonsense!

 

Well, this guy will have this watch for a few centuries ...

In another neg. feedback given by someone else, i see that he paid GBP 9 for shipping and still charged his customer for GBP 14.

Is a carton box or an evelope worth GBP 5 ?

Thanks for the heads up, i for one will avoid this seller.

The gold Pulsar was a limited series what many people consider as the first calculator watch ever made.

However; there is a advertorial in the Playboy  with an obscure calculator watch a few months earlier.....

 

About this Pulsar watch: it is in very good condition with every accessoires but what I mentioned earlier for a 1972 Seiko lcd watch: As soon as it stops working the value of it will drop like an elevator going down.
