Default Shipping to the Philippines

I have a buyer on Ebay that wants a few cards. I am not sure how to go about shipping to the Philippines. I checked the office UPS account and am coming up with a cost of around $85....can that be right?

Any suggestions?

If they're high end cards, USPS EMI is the only way to go. It's around $30. This fully protects you on eBay/Paypal if the buyer claims the item never showed.

Direct link to Phillipines calculator:

If the cards are cheaper, then I'd just go USPS First Class.

The eBay ship cover works pretty nicely too. One member has first hand experience with it in this thread. He sold a high end card that didn't end up at it's destination in Germany and he got his money back.

How big of a lot? A 400 count box will fit inside a Flat Rate Envelope, which will ship to the Philippines for $13.95. Three 550 count boxes will fit inside a Flat Rate Box and ship for about $50. There's also a legal size flat rate envelope, but I don't know what it holds. There is a 4 pound weight limit on flat rate envelopes and a 20 pound weight limit on flat rate boxes sent internationally.

I did once send a batch of cards to the Philippines and had to issue a refund when the buyer claimed non-delivery. I don't know if that is typical of that country or not.
COMC auto accept is currently set at 25% off.

As someone who has lived in the Philippines off and on for over four years heed my advice. Do not ship there, unless you are using a courier service such as DHL. Normal post will be stolen if they see it comes from overseas. If your cards are worth over $10 the buyer won't see them. Mail theft is a big issue over there and the customs guys are no better.
