It's been a large stress so far as a customer. I keep asking suppliers to convert it off. Otherwise I get slugged with transfer responsibility on every buy even if it is far under the $1000 limit for products introduced into Sydney.
There's an automatic Global Shipping Program opt-in coming up. eBay sent an e-mail allowing you to opt-out.
Opt-out by November 10 (just a few days). I removed the click here link in the email because I wasn't sure if it was a personal link.Sell to millions more potential customers
email title: Sell to millions more potential customers
We’ve noticed you have a number of listings that are a great fit for the Global Shipping Program but are not currently enabled for international sales. This means you’re missing out on millions of potential buyers.
To help make it easier for buyers in up to 64 countries to purchase your items, later this month we will automatically enable all of your GSP-eligible listings.
International shipping and shopping made easy
With the Global Shipping Program, you simply ship to a US shipping center where international shipping and customs clearance are handled for you. And since your buyer pays all fees up front, there are no additional amounts due upon delivery.
No action is needed to take advantage of this global selling opportunity; simply leave your settings as they are now. Eligible items are identified automatically, free of charge. However if you would like your GSP-eligible items to be excluded from the Program simply click here by November 10, 2014.
One way to workaround where you buyer is located is offer BIN at an extremely high price, state you buyer requirements, have best offer and pick the buyer. I have done this on high fraud items and picked the non newby buyer and usually a seller also.
I shipped a 70 lb item through the eBay shipping program. I used Fed Ex to get it to Erlanger and it was delivered and signed for. It has been on a "travelers hold" since being delivered on January 12th. It is going to France. Does anyone know what a "travelers hold" is? No one at eBay can tell me and this customer is not happy. Neither I nor the customer have received any emails stating that the item was on hold. Expensive item and buy placed hold through Paypal on the item because he had not heard anything from the shipper. After seeing that the package was delivered and signed for Paypal released the hold. How can I find out what a "travelers hold is" Is there anything I can do?
