Hi im selling a few things on ebay which my babys outgrown and ive had requests to post to austrailia and canada. The items are a snowsuit and a pair of shoes, i was wondering if anyone knew how much i should charge for postage for these seperatly?
Im charging £1.50 for the shoes and £3.00 for the snowsuit in the uk so im hoping someone can give me the cheapest way and price for posting these worldwide to these country's.

you can look on the royal mail website-i just weigh on my scales and allow a little for packaging...USA and Canada are more expensive than Europe (Europe is usually 50p or so more than UK)
I would guess at approx double what you have quoted to Oz.

Yes, at least double your quotes I would say...What you could do is tell the prospective buyers that you will charge £5 each to cover postage, and if it is any less you will refund the difference in to their PayPal account. You are doing the good thing being willing to post overseas, and if it is something they want and are saving a few quid, they will happily pay the extra to cover, and if it does work out less, you just "paypal gift" the difference in to their accounts, or just "send money" back to them. I have been stung a few times on overseas postage. Most buyers are willing to pay a bit extra if they are saving ,money, or getting something that they really want at a good price. If they are a bit dubious, offer to scan in the receipt, or take a picture of it and send them it...

be careful with overseas packages,i stopped sending abroad as so many ppl claimed they never recieved and paypal refunded them as i didnt have tracking numbers,to send international signed for is another £3 something on top of the parcel price!

italy,netherlands and spain were the worst for item not recieved yet they never wanted to pay the extra on top for international signed for

It should go without saying really, but make sure you get either a receipt, or insurance for anything you post. First & second class post in the UK has standard £36 cover, you just ask for a receipt as proof of postage (free) so I would think that overseas post has something similar, if not, send "Internationaly signed for", I think it is, which basically means that no one can say they didn't receive anything as it has to be signed for to get it, and you can also track it online.

As said above, go on [url]www.royalmail.com[/url] website which is what I do. I sell a lot of my family's clothes on ebay and have a lot of requests from abroad so just go to this website and click on postal prices and then price finder (will try and put direct link on for you). Then click overseas and put in how much it weighs, remember to add on a little for packaging. On the next screen it will bring up a list of all the countries so just click on the one it is to be sent to and it will bring up all the prices, you want airmail small packets which bizarrely is always cheaper than small letters. Don't worry, it's really easy to do.

I've sent loads abroad and have never had any problems, if you're selling Next clothes you'll probably find you'll send a lot to the Czech Republic, if you do make sure you don't put any paper in with the parcel at all as our post lady informed us that they are sometimes opened and if there is a letter in there as well then they charge you separate postage for a letter AND a parcel and won't forward it on until you pay the difference, not too easy if you're in a different country!! So to be safe, just send the item in any parcel going abroad and send any correspondence via ebay messaging.

I've sent quite a few things overseas and usually (though not always*) I give International Signed For as an option but am quite clear that if the buyer chooses not to use it and an item is lost or damaged then I can't be held responsible. Quite often they don't want it and so far I haven't had a problem.

*Only one overseas item has failed to reach it's destination (Brazil) so far, and that was an uninsured item but I hadn't included ISF as an option. The buyer had really good feedback so I assumed that he wasn't lying and refunded him. I put in a claim with Royal Mail and within 2 weeks I had a cheque back from them for the final auction amount and the postage costs... so thankfully it all ended well.

But I would definitely take a little time to check out what the final weight of your package will be before giving international shipping price. A few times I've been caught out by guestimating how much the packaging itself will weigh.
