Great news! A new Global Shipping Program, now being tested, will help you expand your sales to millions of eager international buyers. By enrolling for FREE in this program, you’ll be able sell to buyers in multiple countries, but ship your packages to a shipping center located in the US—this means you’re only responsible for the domestic leg of shipping!
Once your item arrives at the designated US shipping center, the Global Shipping Program then takes care of ALL facets of international parcel processing, including:
- Completion of customs forms
- Remitting applicable import charges pre-paid by your buyer
- Shipping the package on to the buyer—with full end-to-end international tracking!
Your shipping-related Detailed Seller Ratings will be protected, and you are not responsible for loss or damage during international transit. This program is great for buyers, too, as they’ll see the complete and total price of the purchase up-front—during checkout—so they won’t be surprised by additional taxes or duties when the item arrives.
The Global Shipping Program is currently being piloted with a small group of sellers, and will be more broadly available in the months ahead. Watch this announcement board for further updates—and get ready to go global!
