Home Biz Notes Author Guest Posts At Power Seller King

by Yvonne Russell on April 3rd, 2008

eBay is a perfect selling opportunity for home business owners. Many make a full time living from eBay. Others dabble in eBay part time.

International Shipping Costs
One of the most contentious issues on eBay is shipping costs, especially international shipping costs.

As I am based in Australia, Power Seller King author, Suzanne Wells asked me to give an Australian perspective on shipping costs. I’ve found shipping costs are often more than the item.

Sometimes it’s fair. Often it’s a rip off. Some eBay sellers overload shipping costs to make extra profit. That’s not a good idea if you want a good reputation, and want return customers.

    Congratulations, Yvonne, on your guest blog gig. It is important to know what shipping costs translate into in other countries.

    isn’t this soo true. I get sick and tired of people not taking the time to send an email to only one person because they are lazy. This cartoon hits it right on the nail.

    Thanks Mary Emma. Shipping can be a make or break for buyers, and indirectly for sellers too.
