Ebay Global Shipping Program
Posted 20 February 2013 - 04:08 AM
I joined and I was concerned of whether or not the GSP would automatically unblock eligible international countries so they could bid on the item and still block international sales from ineligible countries.
When I talked to Ebay they said it does not block ineligible countries automatically so they had me go in and unblock every eligible country, but now when I list items that I don't use with GSP it looks like it's still allowing those international (eligible) countries to bid on items I don't want to sell internationally.

It sounds interesting since I haven't shipped out of the US in years because it wasn't worth it to me to deal with the risk of items getting lost and I hated the idea of having to fill out customs form and then wait in line at the Post Office (since I don't wait in line now using Paypal shipping).
If you have to manually unblock the countries for items in the program and it then reblock them for items you don't want to sell internationally, it sounds like it could be very time consuming. If I was going to try it, my plan was to only allow items that work worldwide like anytime I go to sell a DS game and wasn't going to use it for any console games I might list since I can see that leading to problems where buyers don't read the description and then get annoyed the game they bought won't work in their country unless they can play US games on their console or have a US console.
