    minimum £10 item value for Click & Collect Programme 13th Mar 17 at 11:28 AM
    I don't think this change has bene mentioned here before?

    https://tamebay.com/2017/03/new-minimum-10-item-value-for-ebay-click-collect-programme.html

    I don't offer Argos click and collect on my business listings as so many buyers just never bothered to collect and my outward postage was adding up, but I understand it is quite popular as another way to increase sales.

    As a buyer this is disappointing.

    Will certainly affect what i buy from eBay.

    I have Amazon Prime so I'd be more likely to order from there now for under £10 Click &Colllect small, but can't fit through letter box items.

    Amazon have really expanded their C&C locally.

    My buyers rarely understood that it wasn't in stock in Argos and it caused me heeps of problems.

    Yep, we've had buyers on here as well start threads about the appalling service in that they buy something and can't go and collect it next day like they usually can with Argos. I suspect a lot of buyers really misunderstand what the whole thing is about.

    For me though it was the very high percentage of buyers who just didn't bother to collect , every one returned in collected cost me outward postage and I got fed up with it.

    Oddly timed post. I don't do Argos C&C but I've had a 1k feedback buyer buy something that's too big for a letter box and £100 in value.

    She's added a note for me to send it to her local Argos as she won't be in to collect it. What's more, she lives in Exeter. There are 4 Argos in Exeter. What planet is she on?

    The only items I seem to send to Argos store are under £10 and fit through a letter box. I think some buyers see Argos free delivery and pick that rather than looking a bit further down the page and realising they can get it delivered to their home for free too.
