Well I had my first international buyer in a good while. PayPal made me ship the box through ebay which ebay is making me ship the item to some processing center.
I've meticulously packed the item placing about four pounds of shipping fillers in there. Does anyone know if they are going to repackage it when it comes through? Has anyone had any problems with the shipping centers?
The guy paid a ton for shipping and import fees (over $50) and I just want to make sure his item gets there safely
I'm not sure. When I tried to ship through PayPal it told me that the address was invalid. When I shipped through eBay it told me that I was eligible for the seller protection there.
I'm sure they're using the shipping centers to keep sellers from drastically overcharging for intl shipping. That or lying on customs forms.
