Selling some of my collection
« on: 00:53, 17 February 20 »
In order to make space and allow someone else to get some pleasure from these items (rather than collect dust in my office) I'm sadly selling some of my Amstrad collection.


If anyone is interested the first batch are now listed on eBay all at 99p starting prices. Although I've had some offers in since I've been listing!

I understand you accept grouped delivery to save delivery costs?

More than happy to combine things to save on delivery costs yes. If outside the UK I’m not 100% certain what the buyer is charged but in the UK costs will be between £2.95 and approx £4 depending on the combined weight of the package.

I can tell you how much a Canadian would be charged to send a boxed game from UK: £27.60 .  :picard2:

The next batch of some of my collection will be available on eBay between 19:00 and 21:20 GMT this evening. This time we have Codemasters, Mastertronic (and variants of) and Amsoft titles.


https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/jonnymaniac/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from


All titles start at 99p with the exception of the Amsoft CPC464 bundle due to the number of titles included.


Combined postage will be available.



Bidding in the UK; If you are looking to bid on multiple items from my auctions I'm happy to combine postage and adjust the cost appropriately depending on the weight of the combined items. A combined invoice will be provided where items have not already been paid for.


Bidding outside of the UK; the Global Shipping Programme is used to send items outside the UK, if you are bidding on multiple items and are successful in winning the auctions please ensure you checkout/pay for the items at the same time once they have all finished. Ebay will automatically apply a shipping discount for the Global Shipping Programme. I'm unable to provide a combined invoice in this case but I will refund the appropriate amount of UK postage depending on the weight of the combined items.

Ridiculous costs, items lost, protective materials removed and items repackaged, late deliveries, you name it. Bryce had warned me at some point, then later I did buy an item from a seller who used GSP. Worst. Experience. Ever.

GSP is a trap! (I never buy and trust sellers using this system)

I've had really expensive equipment destroyed, although the seller had packed it properly. GSP put it in a bigger box with no packaging material at all, so it could bounce around inside and didn't survive. GSP is a reason for me to look for a different seller.

What's the point of repacking items?

Removing protective materials and padding so as to make the package lighter. They benefit, you lose.

Actually, they just throw the original parcel as-is into a bigger box. Probably some benefit to having standard box dimensions transport? Either way, the >€1000 frequency counter didn't survive it.

The more I read about people’s experiences with GSP the less I like it but as a seller it’s v convenient. However when I do my next listings I’ll review this as I don’t want to put people off. Frankly the combined shipping thing is a flipping nightmare and nearly lost me a number of sales in my last batch. Thankfully all the items I’ve sent this way have arrived safely but point taken.
