International Shipping Just Got Easier


Ebay has finally rolled out its eagerly awaited Global Shipping Program to qualified sellers and we’re happy to report that we’ve enrolled in it. Purportedly, this will enable customers living outside the US to be able to reduce their shipping costs dramatically, since Ebay will now handle all of the leg work after we’ve shipped them the package.

Frankly, this is all new to us so it may take us a few transactions to get the hang of this and work out any bugs that invariably crop up. We also do not know how this will impact the speed of delivery, since the packages will first be shipped to a clearing house and then on to its final destination. A limited test program was conducted by Ebay this past holiday season and we assume that everything went well.

If the system works as touted, we can upload any item we sell on our web site to Ebay, which will permit customers to shave their shipping costs and be able to track their packages from beginning to end. Keep your fingers crossed because this could be a boon for everyone involved. Note: The Global Shipping Program currently includes the following countries:

  • Australia

  • Bulgaria

  • Canada

  • Cyprus

  • Czech Republic

  • Denmark

  • Estonia

  • Finland

  • Greece

  • Hungary

  • Latvia

  • Lithuania

  • Malta
