I just had a question on eGay regarding a drum module I have for sale, asking if I'd ship to Austria. I'm not opposed to shipping overseas, but I am wary. I responded saying I might ship there, but obviously he'd pay full shipping, as well as all import fees, but I also said that if I did ship overseas, I'd want to be paid Western Union so I didn't get fucked as soon as it left my possession, or if he felt it was taking a little too long, open up a claim, etc.
1: Do you think this is fair?
2: Is there any way to get fucked by Western Union? Once you have the money, it's yours right?
3: Any idea how much it would be to ship a drum module to Austria? It's about a foot long, 6 inches wide, 3 inches tall, doesn't weigh much.
money via band transfer, avoid western union, they'll just charge. buyer to pay fees
Paypal is easier by the way, just make sure you ship fully insured and tracked, that way, you're covered, so is he
Import duties to be paid by buyer
If he asks for it to be underinsured, you will need to let him know that in that case you will NOT be liable if it turns up broken. Underinsuring is a risk people take to pay less import, but, when i do it, i fully realise i have no comeback if goods arrive damaged, as i asked for the underinsurance.
In the case of underinsurance, fed-ex, and packaged like a tank btw
