Pitney Bowes

Just got charged two fees by PitneyBowes on two purchaes in the UK. No extra charges listed on the goods.

UK is still a member of the UK as is Denmark. No extra charges but shipping should be imposed, and defently not unlisted ones.

 

I will stop all dealing with UK sellers, as this seems like a ripoff.

Not sure what to do.

 

Cheers

The items you purchased were through Global and that would be clear, as would the charges, from the listing.

 

Yes, Global is a rip-off.

Just avoid all sellers where it says "Posts to UK and Many Other Countries" that means Global shipping, with their high charges, slow delivery and no means of combining postage.


Their charges are high because they use tracking for all items including low value, and of course everyone involved is only in it to make money, ebay and Pitney Bowes. Unfortunately far too many sellers are scared of trying to post overseas themselves, leaving the way open for this unnecessary services.
