What are peoples thoughts on ebay extra ? Think its just a loyalty card type thing, points for £ spent.

From other auctions it seems the Italian postal service is appaling and things often get lost or "misplaced" by customs. Don't know how true that is to be fair.

italy is a nightmare, at least half of the items i send there dont seem to turn up. International signed for aint any use at all.

is it better for items your selling to end in the day or evening as regards to attracting bids ?
