    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.

    • 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. Cheers, Steve.
