You ship to a US address and they take care of the international shipping for you.

So as long as you get the item delivered to the U.S. shipping center, you are completely covered even if somehow the item gets "lost" once it leaves the U.S.?

You will not be responsible for the loss of, or damage to, a GSP Item after its acceptance at the U.S. Shipping Center.


The Rules are simple

A GSP Item that you sold was noted as damaged by the domestic carrier when received at the U.S. Shipping Center (whether or not the GSP Item(s) can be repackaged and returned to you).
A GSP Items that you sold was found to be damaged upon opening a Parcel (as defined herein), as and if required, after receipt thereof at the U.S. Shipping Center.
A Parcel contains the wrong or no GSP Item associated with the buyer order.
One or more of the following data points provided by you or associated with the GSP Item that you sold is incorrect or indeterminable (and it is not practicable for Pitney Bowes to correct):
Country of Manufacture
Item Category
Item Title/Description
"HS Classification Code"
Item condition
Weight of Parcel
Dimensions of Parcel.
A Parcel is oversized and/or overweight and cannot be shipped through an upgraded service.
A GSP Item that you sold requires destruction (e.g., contraband).

That sounds good. I don't know why, but it doesnt offer me the option to opt in to the global shipping program.

I thought sports cards did not qualify for the Global Ship Program anyway? At least that was one of the previous "exempt" items. It could of changed.

Also, this will NEVER be able to deter the blatant theft of international/domestic sales of items.

Buyers can continually claim the package was 'empty' or a 'base card' was in included instead of a MJ auto ... and win the case every time. Insurance will not cover this, the seller will NEVER be protected from this scam so long as eBay/Paypal give buyers the power to win these cases, even with (1) FB over a (10,000) FB seller...

I got invited to test this program so I'll let people known how it is since I have a decent customer base over seas.

Fortunately for sellers at least, as soon as the item gets to the eBay distribution center then the seller is off the hook. Even if the buyer files a claim or says he never got the item eBay isn't holding the seller responsible for having to pay back the money.

Does ebay repackage the item and resend it? Or, do they just slap another label on it and send it out the door? Bigger question, you don't pay for this? How does ebay make any money taking a shipped item and then paying for the international postage?

No idea. I just shipped it to the warehouse in KY and they did the rest. No additional cost to me. Just the cost to ship it to them.

Just started with the program. Do you just have to charge shipping to get the item to the warehouse in KY right? So I don't have to offer first class international shipping right?

I would think they do not repack your item. I mean do u really want some random person opening your package up and then repackaging it? I can see so many problems with that.
So when the buyer complains the package is empty, there's suddenly 5 parties involved.
Seller, U.S. post office, global shipper, international post, buyer. No one is going to want to take responsibility.

They said in the program details that as soon as the seller gets the item to KY the seller was no longer responsible for anything after that. So from a sellers standpoint, their responsibility is done after the KY distribution center receives the package.

I'm curious though how eBay will handle DSR ratings and potential negative feedback though. I know that if you get the item to the distribution center in the stated time the buyer can't give you anything less then a 5 for shipping time but I wonder if they can still hurt you for the other stuff.

I received the offer to join this as well. So the only shipping the seller has to pay for is the one to the sort facility? I assume eBay will send an invoice to cover the rest of the shipping to the buyer?

If the seller can cash out the money after KY global center recieves the package, why would the seller bother to send out the real card?

im sure the same risk will be there that the buyer can claim that the card was not in the package or that it wasnt the correct card. this just makes it easier for people to ship internationally.

As a collector from Australia who has been frustrated in the past by US sellers not wanting to ship overseas I initially thought this may be a good idea.

In my opinion it is not, it is just another way for ebay to try and make some money.

I wanted to purchase a card which was being sold under this new program and as well as the international shipping cost there was also going to be customs and taxes of $4.88

That is total crap as there is no customs charges on items coming into Australia that cost less than $1000AUD. Anything over that and we pay around 13% customs and taxes

I will continue to have friends in the USA buy the cards for me who then send to me.
