Your argument as to why it sucks for sellers makes no sense. The packaging and postage costs are neutral. The seller pays them with the money the buyer sent over for p&p. It's not part of the actual sale and thus a seller should not expect to make money with it. That's not how it is meant to be. So, it makes no sense for a seller to ship separately UNLESS they have an automated system in place that works on a one-by-one basis like zoverstocks. This is a practical concern though, not a financial.
it wanst an argument against you or anybody mate i was just unsure as to wether the rules were in relation to just postage or or p&p .. thats all i was getting at and of course noone wants to pay more than necessary.... and i wasnt trying to condone sellers trying to make a few quid by charging ludacris postage.... of course im sure sellers and buyers alike would prefer combined postage it saves money all round
