Anything for you Nick :) I’ve successfully shipped to Europe, Japan, Oz & NZ, the US and Canada even to Scotland in the past and whilst I’ve suffered inexplicable delivery delays probably due to customs I’ve never had a package go missing!

The Global Shipping Program option should be enabled on all my listings (if you spot one I’ve missed please let me know). In all honesty I’m not sure what monetary effect using the GSP has for buyers over me posting out internationally directly.. I suspect that greedBay make a profit out of it. It’s the same amount of work for me packing it and taking to the post office whether is sent directly to you en France or to the GSP transit warehouse. If I can avoid giving eBay/PayPal anymore money I’d be delighted.

I did have someone outside of the UK complain a few months back that they couldn’t bid on an item as the site physically wouldn’t allow it from their location and they had to get a friend in the UK to bid for them. Maybe you could try a bid (or two :evil: ) to make sure it all works - I’d hate for you or anyone to get to the last few minutes only to discover an issue).

Anyone else outside the UK please report to me if you find an issue bidding. Thanks.

Oh and maybe follow my listings as there’s going to be more rare bits listed over the next few months.

and breathe...


Edited: I’ve already got bids from the USA and Germany!

I found that GSP adds some money over a direct shipment because it does tracking and some insurance. I've
been saved by the program a few times.

I don’t know if the issue is the s on the end of http so I’ve removed it, try again and report back?

Anyone else have the same issue?

Just try searching for my eBay ID - oxoblue

Hi Greg no there are 13 items (at the moment) would you do me a favour please? Would you click on See Sellers other items and then post the link here? I suspect it’s something to do with it being linked from my login. Though I’m not enough of a computer expert to know.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers
Steve

Steve, using the link in your first post, I got to the red jack and handle. Clicking on "see other items" brings up only 3 items, the two handbooks and the warranty certificate.
I'd love to see more :-)

Thanks for trying, I’m at a loss to understand what the issue is? I’ll have to contact eBay I suppose. I’ll attach a screenshot or 3 of what I have listed, hopefully you can see what I’ve got:
