When you sell on ebay does the winning bid include the postage costs or does buyer have to pay extra?

I am still not sure whether I as the seller pay the postage or the buyer does (I displayed the postage costs separately but the buyer has only paid the winning bid).

It includes whatever you decide it should include. You do this by assigning the shipping cost when you are creating the item for listing. Ebay makes you put a shipping price in there (either free or otherwise). Usually just put what it costs to ship it as the shipping cost. A higher shipping price reduces the final value fees ebay will charge you though.

You have to pay postage costs on top of the winning bid.

Hi Ralph.
It is up to you! When you set up, you get the option to include postage or to display it separately.
I always have it separate, as do most eBay sellers - and postage is always enough to cover the post, envelope, and a small profit! Most sellers do this, means the bid price is pure profit.
