First Class is better. You can offer a lower shipping rate with first class and to make the shipping more competitive and still make some money on shipping.

First Class on a game w/ DC online (printed labels) is $1.73 - $1.97 depending on the weight of the game. Figure a $0.20 - $0.33 for a bubble mailer and you can mail a game for a little over $2.00 so even charging $3.50, you are shipping for less than priority and making a dollar on the shipping

Was wondering how dangerous it was to send things international?
I guess worried about deadbeat/scammers as tracking is not that great to send things international. Anyone with some experience let me know. Thanks.

In my experience, Canada and western Europe (U.K. France, Germany, The Scandinavian Nations, Spain, pretty much anywhere west of Austria) are fine, so is most of the Pacific Rim (Japan, S. Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Australia , and New Zealand). Other than that, I wouldn't bother unless you send your item Global Express Mail (GEM) which is insured and trackable, but that service starts at about $20.

I would not ship to Italy, Mexico, or Brazil...postal systems are very corrupt in those nations.

Hey thanks a lot. That helped quite a bit. Any experience shipping to Netherlands?

From another thread, but I thought this would be good to throw in here when a seller disappears on you.

Have you tried this:
Find Contact Information

That should instantly email you his phone number etc, but I'm not sure if it'll still work if they aren't registered

Brian, I hope you don't mind, I added two Nintendo Bootleg related links to the OP.

The Bootleg thread had the old Nintendo Anti-Piracy website which hadn't been updated in years, and I was looking for the Nintendo contact info for the pirated DS games coming out of China right now.

This is a great resource for these quick links. It is such a pain to find some of these on ebay.

I wanted to add a resource people can use when finding the value of their games on ebay. I run VGPC.com and we show the 30 day average price for about 10,000 video games based upon the ebay prices. You can also see the past prices with a chart going back 18+ months in some cases.

Quite a few people use the site so they can see how much their games are worth on one page instead of having to average the prices of ebay auctions. Plus ebay only shows 2 weeks of data so it doesn't always give enough info.

how do I report copyrighted stuff to ebay? A friend of mine, bought a strategy guide (e-guide to your email) from ebay and its basically the same walkthrough guide you get from gamefaqs for free. The sellers won't give him a refund so he kind a piss off about it.


I don't know if someone has answered this already, did your friend pay via Paypal? It should be easy, in my case, do a charge back or file a dispute with Paypal and open up an investigate so he might get money back.

I have had a significant increase in "where is my game" emails and "item not received" claims from Germany (and 1 out of 1 from Austria)...

Does anyone know if it's okay to ship from a different town than the one that is associated with your account and the item you sold through Ebay?

Sorry if someone has mentioned this but it is a lifesaver if you list alot

Turbo Lister

It's freeware developed by ebay for the bigger sellers to be able to make ads faster, you can make templates for similar items (like if you sell alot of games you could have a folder of twenty "game" auctions where all you have to edit is the description, add pictures, and a title)

One of the biggest advantages Turbo-Lister gives you is the ability to self-host images, instead of paying ebay to host the one or two pictures of your item, you can upload up to twelve to photbucket/imageshack/uploadhouse/whatever and copy the links into TurboLister and they will be on the ad free of charge. That REALLY cuts down on costs in the long run AND your ad will look better and give the purchaser more confidence in what they are buying. They are buying from someone with nothing to hide instead of a two-bit seller that takes one single picture and tosses a "It's pretty good, a couple of scratches" in the description and calls it a day.

I have seen several people make their location "United States, United States." On ebay before, I think as long as the address is the same as the credit card or bank account associated with your paypal you should be fine.
