Thinking of buying some video games from ebay UK. Any previous experiences? Are there any problems with customs during entry? Sellers are not really including any custom duties as part of the charges (apart from the shipping charges)

Sellers don't include customs because they don't know how much it'll be charged and they usually just ship as a user. If it's not very big/ high priced then it shouldn't be an issue. You might get customs but it will be cleared.

Guys,

 

I have some outdoor clothes like North face, Free Country and other stuffs like imported perfumes and all that i do not need and want to sell it off as I already have it what i need.

 

I know some of you told me that i can sell my The Last Guardian ( Japanese Edition ) on ebay and ship it internationally. I did not find buyer for it in India yet so i am considering to put it on Ebay as well along with these stuffs. I tried selling them in India but the price i was quoted for such branded stuffs was too low to even think of selling them so want to try ebay now.

 

 

I just need to know few questions.. from people who have done something like this.

 

 

Will i be charged on putting them on ebay?Does ebay charge any commission on each stuff?

 

How do i ship internationally? Indian post good for it?

 

How will i get paid?

 

Thanks.

Don't have much experience selling on ebay but yes you are charged a listing fee+ commission on ebay which gets deducted when you sell the product. For shipping you can either ship it privately or through ebay(not sure about international). For international payments I think ebay only allows paypal. Not a 100% sure though. Also make sure to list no returns otherwise 30% of online orders get returned and you might end up wasting shipping money.

As far as I know the listing fee is refunded if the product does not sell. Also it's peanuts :P on indian ebay it's only around 5rs or so.

Haan yea clothing and dvds require you to get some feedback 1st .

Word of advice don't sell such high value item on ebay .

If you encounter a fraud(which you will since you are a new seller ) he will open a claim send you back some torn shirts and get his money back while keeping your items

But playstationdude said i could use No returns policy .....

 

anyways thanks for the advice. Will anyways won't bother anymore...it takes too much time...taking pics and then writing everything in detail and then on the last page when you are about to finish it will give you that error...very irritating.

There are exceptions in no return policy like size, fit ,damaged item etc

And ebay is centered towards buyer so they will never listen to the seller
