hi guys, Kickaha with reference to `NZ Post` set up, is G.S.T. charged on the goods,cheers
Haven't been hit with it yet, currently it is only goods over $400 you get charged gst for although there a bit of "luck of the draw" as to whether that actually happens

Youshop normally ask for a parcel value before they get shipped

he has been trying to sell a very nice rocket scrambler for weeks i think its now in bits looking at his adds but hey the blokes making a living and not forcing anyone to buy people will buy on ebay rather than going to auto jumbles which involves time and money on travel and you may not find what you want i placed a free wanted add for a pair of fork sliders for 8in s/sided brake some  7 weeks ago a guy replied saying he had a pair and said if i could wait he was visiting a niece in my home town on his way to olivers mount races and he would drop them off on the saturday which was  yesterday he had a pair of powder coated legs with as new chrome oil  seal holders stanchions and springs  complete ready to fit a pair of spare legs a  rear brake plate for full width hub and a new pair of  brake shoes in a box £35 the lot there are still bargains and nice people out there

Multiple entries on Ebay annoy me this was/inserted over 100 times and do they ever look to check what they put for a price
And where is the item number these days (I do need new glasses, in case it's there and I missed it)

Hi Bill the item number is lower down the page than picture shows , its in very small print on right hand side in the item specifics usually. That's a hell of a price for a battery 390quids  *eek* Cheers Dave

Hi all,


Re the battery. I don't know if it's the case here but at one time I queried a silly price someone was asking. Thinking the seller had mistakenly added extra naughts on the price and I was helping them by pointing it out. The reply I received was that he had no stock for that item at the moment and to keep his adverts live on eBay he changes the price to a rediculously high price knowing nobody will buy it. When he has stock again he changes the prices back again.


I know listings can be saved for another time but I suppose just changing the prices on a live listing is another way to save having to relist the item and then having to pay a new listing fee  *sad2* .  Sellers can be crafty . . . and there's always a chance ;) *smile* *smile* *smile* .


Could be the case here.

Long time since I listed anything RogerSB, good explanation though, there's probably a reason for the 100 + listings also

The battery will fit a hundred + bikes so he listed for all of them. I quite often see pages of the same part, sometimes in three languages.
