I do all this, ok, my DSR's are 3x4.9 and 4.7 for p&p but I pack well and post within 1 working day. I get praise for my packing and repeat buyers particularly global.
A bricks and mortar shop owner has to include overheads as part of the business so why not an online seller. All this greedbay garbage about offering free p&p is virtually a scam so you set the start price higher and hopefully sell it for more so they get higher insertion and FVF's, they must think we are all stupid.
But of course some buyers expect you to ship for nothing, also they will soon complain and neg if what they receive has not survived the post office's lunchtime 5-a-side footie match
