    If the item is under 70mm thick, you dont need to measure volume. It usually falls into the S or M depending on the size of the book. You can go to the NZ post website "rate finder" and put in the dimensions for the price. Take note that they usual display their courier price first, but look lower and you'll see their economy rate

    But in this case both parties werent in the same city, so the across town rate doesnt apply. And in some larger cities such as Auckland, it doesnt even cover all of the Auckland area. You should also not assume which company the buyers use, for their reasons they may use a particular one and also might have additional costs to send it.  The fault of the seller is that they had the wrong location, but us experienced users know that this can sometimes happen and never rely on that solely. You fault was not confirming the shipping price prior to bidding. As you didnt, the price of shipping isn...

    You may have a point re the higher shipping costs due to their incorrect location, but did you not ask the shipping costs prior to buying? Asking the buyer to load the shipping costs onto the auction prior to buying wouldve resolved both the higher cost, the waiting for the cost, plus the need to pay via manual deposit. If shipping hasnt been loaded, I always ask so I know the total cost of the purchase

    To S and Jennie - thanks yes that little trick works. Ive now bookmarked that so can now get to it - awesome! Flossy63 - I am on a laptop using firefox. TBH, I was surprised to see the "desktop" view on it as I thought it was only available on the app or using mobile internet.

    Yeh it sure is. I dont know why they would take this away Now I need to go to my phone to do it, as I can still do it on that. Very annoying.  Thanks for your help anyway, much appreciated

    Thanks for the link, I was trying to figure it out but never got it right. Unfortunately when I click on it, it just automatically changes to the new site.

    Hi there I used to be able to go into the "Items I'm Selling" page and filter by auctions with bids or unanswered questions. Unless I need to take a visit to spec savers, this facility seems to have gone now. This was a useful feature, does anyone have any work arounds? Cheers

    You can do this on "my products", as well as many other useful things

    Jon - currently the only way to stop this is to remove the app from your phone. Clearly this is not ideal, but it is the only way. I have a standard note in my payment instructions, but people ignore it and of course it doesnt apply when you buy something. The simplest solution trademe needs to make is to just give us the option to turn it off
