Did it give you the "destination country is not covered by ShipCover" line? I get it every now and again when shipping in the US. Usually I just restart the labeling process and it works.

Guy is in Germany, but shipping to NV? I email him but have not gotten response. Feedback is 100% but most is from things he sells in Germany.
I recently had a situation like this and had no issue. I assumed it's sent to a friend to send along in some way to avoid import taxes.
I'm not someone else.

It’s a shipping service. Whenever I’m in NZ I use a similar one (youshop) so I can have US parcels sent over to me.

does USPS priority international not provide delivery confirmation to canada or UK anymore?

i thought they did... but am seeing a message on ebay postage page:
Delivery Confirmation is not available for this shipping service, for the destination country that you've selected

Also, it seems I can't get signature confirmation to anything international through USPS. Looked into Fedex but it was going to be $125 to ship with insurance. :hanging:

What does it take for you to block someone? Personally, I block in a microsecond if I get even a hint of douchery.

Oh, I know how to do it. I'm trying to see what a potential buyer would have to do to make you want to block them as a bidder? I suspect I am stricter than most.

I had a guy send me a lowball offer (2/3 of what I was asking, and I had not activated Best Offers - it was just a message), and I told him I would be lowering prices "in the coming weeks as items don't sell." The auction ends and it auto-relists at the same price and he messages me "so you relisted at the same price...cool." I blocked him on the spot. I don't need that kind of entitled snarkiness from a buyer. Plus the item sold last night for exactly what I listed it for - I hope he sees it.

I don't know about you being stricter than most, it has been said that "for the mouth speaks what the heart is full of" so I'd like to think that you may be on point.

Always amazes me when potential buyers antagonise me over repeated messages and expect me to give them good deals as well.

Yeah, I had some clown send me a message offering $200 on a $500 BIN print saying he wasn't going to pay 10x the drop price. I wrote back telling that him that he wouldn't be buying the print and blocked him.
