View Full Version : international shipping?

So,ebay sellers, do you ship internationally? I've just started selling again and I've been contacted by someone in Canada and someone in Germany wanting to know how much it is to ship to them. My auctions clearly state that I only ship to the US but I was just wondering what other's policies are. Thanks!

I used to do alot of Ebaying (buyer and seller) before I step foot in the web hosting. I would recommend you start off with Paypal and sell only to verified customers. I think Canada and Germany has relatively lower fraud rate compared to, say, Africa or some unknown countries.

You can always check on the verification at

There is no official policy by Ebay of not selling.

Point to note will be: Custom Duty for Exporting (inform customer that he/she must pay for the duty), shipping (Regular Mail or Fedex, DHL, etc) and also making sure you receive you payment in USD. Otherwise, you may lose out in exchange when transacting in Paypal.

If you want to discuss further, feel free to PM me. There are lots of things that can take note of.
