Default Whats the deal with shipping to Taiwan?

Ok so I just sold that Machado Orange on ebay, but it was to a Taiwan Bidder. What do I charge him for shipping and Insurance to out there? Also what are your opinions on International Transactions?

I may lose some sales because of it, but I refuse to ship out of the country any more. Been ripped off too many times. Hopefully everything will go smoothly for you.

Those rates quoted are usps first class with no tracking or guaranteed delivery date.

With cards of this magnitude I'd always use USPS Priority insured, at the least. Make it known beforehand that you require usps priority or express mail for international buyers, and that they'll be responsible for all fees (should specify what the weight is and type of package in the ebay shipping details section). Most 'legit' overseas buyers will be completely fine with this, as it means they'll get their items with tracking within a specified timeframe.

USPS Express (EMS) 3-5 business day envelope is recommended. But not all buyers want to pay 35-40 bucks for shipping, unless it's a really valuable card.

Bubble mailers start at $3 outside the US.

For the love of anything you believe in please don't ever listen to this posted.

USPS EMI is the best option.
