Ebay - Shipping items abroad

Found 7th Nov 2010
Hi,

Has anyone had any experience of sending items, abroad. I'm selling red dead on Ebay and I've been asked if I will send it to Brazil.

Is tracking neccesary? What postal service should i use?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Don't do it!

I have sold many games all across the world from time to time. I used Royal Mail Small Packets - it does not cost much £1.90 at most. So far there have been no issues, all items have reached within 4 or 5 days. Also this service is not tracked or recorded etc. I have also sent one game to brazil with no problems.

Hope this helps.

My advice is not to send it abroad.



Is that beacuse of the risk of it going walkies? have you sent anything abroad before and had problems?

I sell on Ebay and send abroad a lot. You definitely need tracking and I recommend Royal Mail Airsure

anyone got any ideas how much it would cost to post an N64 game to australia? ill probably need to know and add the subsequents charges to the completed listing

not worth it matey....dont do it. I used to sell stuff all over europe but so much went 'missing' it just wasnt worth it anymore.

i used to send abroad, last few years have got terrible, dont do it

Sent various things abroad with no problems to be honest though some books took weeks to arrive to the US. Depends on the buyer i.e. his feedback etc. Tell him you will only send it signed for if you're a bit unsure. That way you can track it. Add a bit on for your trouble too (_;)

anything via RM is only tracked in the uk not once it leaves, if it doesnt arrive then paypal will side with the buyer as you will be unable to show proof they have received it

Want negative feedback, want ebay/paypal on your back go ahead. Want a nice smooth transaction sell it within the uk.
