Lets say I'm using Ebay's GSP. I sell an item and the buyer is in Korea.

Can I just have the item ship directly to Ebay warehouse for outbound to Korea, or do I need to have the item sent to me first where I have to affix a special label?

How does the process work?

    Yes, you can ship to the warehouse in Kentucky (that's where our packages went) and the then the warehouse ships your item to the respective country.

    My wife and I sell several hundred items per month on eBay. I've been selling on eBay full time for around 10-years and 15-years total.

    We used to do the Global Shipping Program. It all sounds like a good idea UNTIL you get a return. The return shipping is out of this world. You can end up paying $50 or $100 in shipping just to get an item back.

    Buyers know this! Many international buyers will buy something and open a dispute, knowing that in most cases they will end up with the MONEY and the item.

    Plus, if a dispute arises, you are normally screwed.

    We now just ship to the USA and it's the best decision we made.

      Chuck, reading the gsp rules, once the items is in the hands of eBay/ Pitney Bowes, isn't the refund and shipping their responsibility??
