Have had 3 items sold to non Uk members on ebay and I clearly state that I will send to UK only.
Neither of them contacted me to see if I would be willing to post to them. Its a pain as I have to take the parcel to the post office to get a price before I can email them and then go back again to post it!
The items are not bringing me a lot of money either so it kinda makes it not worth the extra effort.
Can I refuse to sell to them and will ebay let me relist for free as it wasnt my fault the bidder bid on it without reading the details?
There is an option on Ebay for selling only to UK bidders, you need to tick that box when you are listing the item. I have had this happen and they were really persistent and annoying so I left negative feedback and relisted - they know the rules and are just being difficult
Why the problem with sending abroad?? You can get a leaflet at the po which'll tell you all the prices. Not complicated and increase your sales! What are you selling? Are they expensive items or big and bulky to post? If you get proof of posting item is still insured up to £35 like in UK. I have posted to Australia and Europe and am always amazed how quickly they get there and have never had any trouble with buyers. I have never had a parcel not reach its destination abroad whereas in the UK ......! My sales are a bit thin on the ground at the moment - I wouldn't think of actually turning people away - however most of my bits go for under £10. If we were talking PC sales or TVs or something I would probably think again.
