    So, I will have to start saving right away for my trip.
    I have some things that I could sell on Ebay but I have no idea how to do it. For starters, how do you calculate how much postage to charge?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    there is a size and weight guide on the royal mail website, other than that I usually jsut look at what other people are charging and charge a little less than that- so it seems a bit more competative.

    You need to weigh the package and then go to www.royalmail.com and check the postage charges there. Then factor in the cost of the packaging too. And some people add a bit more on to cover fees or whatever they feel like.

    I would also look in your yellow pages and see if there is another company you can use to post from. I discovered one up the road from me and boy are they cheaper. I sold a computer tower, touch screen monitor and arm mount. They packaged and sent it parcel force 24 for me and it only cost 11.99. I dread to think what it would of cost if i sent it from teh post office.

    As a side note, if you do need packaging materials (brown paper, tape, jiffy bags etc) look on Ebay to buy them. I used to have to buy box loads of packaging to feed my Ebay selling habit and it was always far cheaper to buy from there than anywhere else.
