    How much would it cost to post an Ipod to Russia?

    Selling on Ebay and received a question asking this. Anybody know?

    Weight the iPod and put it in here: sg.royalmail.com/por…alc

    Looks like it'll be around a tenner for International Signed For but I just put in a few random weights.

    Very rarely you'll get a signature overseas in which case paypal wont pay out... check the buyers feedback first, not everyones a con artist. :thumbsup:

    I'm not sure seller protection covers countries other than UK, EU, US.. don't quote me on that.

    As already mentioned signed delivery sometimes goes unsigned in foreign countries so you'll have no proof of delivery (a requirement for Paypal's seller protection). Italy is a one such country where their scammers exploit the postal system and claim INR even though they did receive it - just didn't sign for it.

    That'd be the final nail in the coffin for me - are the 4 feedbacks for low value sales perhaps?

    depends on the postal system you can log into some countries post sites and find out and receive a confirmation but not all

    no idea about russia but i would expect not

    track-trace.com/post

    is best site to check international delivery......but as i say not all countries partake

    Wish i could take it for you. Have been to 31 European countries but Russia is my dream. Visa requirements are a nightmare though for people like me who like to book everything seperate.
