Default In theory, if you were to sell a box of Retro on ebay, would you allow intl bidders?

I don't have anything, so I'm just asking as a theoretical question.

If you were to sell a box of UD Retro on ebay, would you open it up to Intl bidders or just leave it as US only?

Thoughts?

I'm serious this time, I just want opinions.

I honest to God do not have a box, but may be getting one next week and have no interest in opening it.

I usually am Mr. Intl with my shipping, but am not so sure this time.

Yes w/ insurance and tracking. if international bidders can dish $400 for a box they can spend $20 for shipping.

You'd surely get more interest/bids/offers, however, I don't know if that risk is worth it on a sealed product.

Agree, send it UPS or FedEx and require signature. No different than selling to the USA.

What will shipping a box like that UPS/Fedex cost (ballpark)? I rarely ever ship anything than USPS.

Sold several high end to international bidders...never a hiccup. Just have to make sure you screen their feedback closely and make sure they have 0 negatives. So long as they're willing to cover all shipping expenses including insurance, all is well.

Oh, and I only use usps express for high prices international packages. Always better to spring out the extra 10-15 bucks for guaranteed 3-5 business day service, imo.

+1. To get ebay seller protection, you need to use expedited shipping. There is also some sort of insurance option, but I have never used it.
