Anyone have any issues shipping to Romania? Have a buyer with 0 feedback and unverified who just bought an expensive print from me. PayPal is currently looking into it. I assume if it goes through that insurance will cover it.

Do you use the Global Shipping program? If not, I wouldn’t risk it.

How do I insure this print to Romania that sold for $3,500? USPS Global Express Guaranteed maxes out at $2499.

**edit** Was able to insure it at the Post Office.

block this turd: kroqsjimmy

shill offered up an item I had listed to find the auto-deny offer limit I had. called ebay they said he had been flagged for this in the past.

in a span of 30 seconds he made 3 offers trying to find my set price, and retracted the last one as I was accepting it. not worth your time!

how does this ebay 20% off deal work? i don;'t use it enough to know. you buy an eligible item and it automatically deducts the 20% when you pay? it seems like it's just certain items.

Dat just means dat seller is running a "promotion" on their store. So they're giving 20% off certain or all items they're selling.

If you pay attention, once every month or so they have a 15% off coupon most things. Sometimes it's app only though.

yes once your item makes it to Ebay in Kentucky you are all set.... the shipment from them to the buyer is on them if they lose it... not you...
