Can I sell postage stamps on eBay?

With the approaching price increase of stamps, could I buy a lot of them and sell them on eBay?

Yes you could, which is why Royal Mail are now rationing supplies.

Not many people realise that stamps are legal tender, you could actually pay for stuff in shops with stamps.

Dont forget It might cost you more to send them - postage is going up. grin

That example is barter.

Having read the Royal Mint guidelines, their legal tender sounds too complicated, I think I'll stick to my system of I.O.U.'s and get on with planting my potatoes and runner beans and jam making ready for the exchange market.

Unless you were able to find someone willing to by a lot of stamps at a time, you will be out of pocket. If you are thinking of selling to a business, it is easier to set up a post-paid system than to keep a lot of stamps that may be used for (by) other people.
