what shipping cost you had put up for international buyers? agree about shipping being no different than within UK, just send it signed for.
if you really really don't want to, can try put shipping cost really high and tell buyer that thus is the price. you were given by courier, apologize for high cost and say that you will understand if he wants to cancel transaction.

Box it up as you would normally.. take it to post office and get them to price it for the buyers country and then reinvoice buyer with p&p.. Theres no difference sending it international as long as u get the postage right.

Anything that can go wrong shipping abroad can happen with UK shipping too... Unless the buyer is happy to pull out of sale then u have to honor the deal.

You could just apologise & explain that you are a new ebay member & you don't send overseas but forgot to state this in your listing & hopefully they will be understanding, good luck.

Click MyEbay - Click on the "Sold folder" - Find the sold camera - Click on more actions - Cancel order -

Just explain to the guy you accidentally put international shipping and if his not a complete **** he should cancel the sale and then just re-list.

No need to take it to the post office to get a price for shipping costs.

Thanx guys ! I have contacted the buyer explaining about everything .. Hopefully he will get back to me with positive attitude !

if you end up sending it beware of royal mail intl signed for only tracks your package until it leaves the uk

I've sent a few things internationally (mainly car parts) and haven't had an issue. At the end of the day your more likely to be scammed by someone in the UK than abroad.
