If an item is listed with free P&P, can the seller add P&P in the description?

Some categories in eBay now have a requirement that the sellers offers 'free' P&P on the item. To get round this, some sellers list the item with 'free' P&P but then state in the description something like "Please note eBay won't let me charge postage for this item, so £7.99 will be added to your invoice".

This isn't allowed and sellers can't force you to pay extra charges in this way. If they want to list an item that is heavy then can select the 'freight/bulky item' option and state the P&P charge in the listing, but they're not allowed to state 'free' postage then add it on later.

If this happens and your seller refuses to honour the sale, then you should Report the Seller to eBay as a Non Performing Seller, if this happens too often, the seller will face restrictions and will eventually be stopped from selling on eBay.

Don't be afraid to leave negative or neutral feedback for sellers that refuse to honour a sale, as they can't leave you bad feedback in return.
