Default Sending a $2000 item to a "0" bidder in Taiwan

Anyone have this happen before? Usually I use ebay global but I must have made an error. I messaged the buyer tell him I have to re-list and he has to re-purchase with global.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I never deal with sending anything outside US, but that’s just me. Too much trouble.

Same here, and that's even on smaller dollar items such as a $45 auto card.

Had a similar experience with a $1500 card. It was purchased right before the basketball season started. I asked the buyer to go back and repurchase so I could setup the listing for global and he did. Shipped off the card and never had a problem. Buyer had 65 feedback.

My thought on this one is, its a coin toss. Cross my fingers and hope the buyer on the other end is an honest one. I do that with every transaction though.

Zero and a 2000 card? I’d take my chances on the negative and cancel the deal.

It's actually a retail case of 2017 Prizm Basketball so it's a 20 pound plus item. If he doesn't repurchase, I think I'm going to just forget it and roll the dice on the negative. Too much of a risk in my eyes. Plus his address isn't in English on ebay.

Nah. Not in my opinion. If they know how to use the ebay/paypal systems, the seller is never safe.

If you send that, you are just asking for a $2000 loser.

Ebay’s Global shipping program is actually pretty good for the seller too. As long as it makes it to Kentucky and is shipped off internationally, you are no longer responsible for the item.

All international items are opened by eBay to verify customs paperwork and repackaged. Any damages or lost items after that point is the responsibility of eBay and they will settle with the buyer.

So definitely cancel the order and relist it via the global shipping program.

Even if you have to eat the neg, don't ship. In fact put him on your BBL before you relist it.

Cancel it. Give as the reason "There was a problem with the buyer's address." If he leaves a negative, ebay may side with you if you ask to have it removed.

If I were the seller and planned on canceling it, this is the route I would go as well. He won the listing for an item that ships in the US only ( I believe). If he does not have a US address, "there was a problem with the buyers address".

US only, and most definitely no big ticket items to zero buyers period.
