eBay says that most of its rates are still cheaper than buying postage direct from carrier.
Plus with eBay delivery service, sellers benefit from higher standard compensation, and the option to purchase enhanced compensation up to £1,000 for any carrier to cover the more expensive items, in case of loss or damage in transit.
