I live in Korea, and generally the stuff I order is under $250 so it fits into Korea's customs exception, but on the odd occasion when I do deal with them, it can be a hassle as my Korean is far from being up to par (and I usually have somebody else talk to them if I can't get an English speaker). Minus the hassle on my end, I've never had a problem the 3-4 times I've had to deal with them. Never given anybody of purchased from any problem.
Regardless, I like to think us Americans in Asia (as well as Asians in Asia) make fantastic customers (and given that many sellers don't ship to Asia, easy to build loyalty with).
The eBay'r does speak perfect English. I did respond to him asking him about a valid Japan address verified and registered with paypal to make sure its legit. I'm still waiting for a response from him.
Question about revising an Invoice. So of course all of my eBay postings have a flat rate shipping price for Cont. US, being as I stated in my posts that I only ship to Cont. US. (granted I seem to continue to run into people interested elsewhere, so now I'm rethinking my shipping to worldwide after I of course get a little more educated on it all) But back to the question; when it does come down to shipping elsewhere and changing shipping costs to the destination, how do I go about revising an invoice for the buyer to pay with the updated shipping costs? Is it as simple as messaging the buyer to not pay as soon as the auction ends and wait for an updated invoice? Once that is done, do I update the post after its completed to show the affect of an updated price? Can I even change the price of the item and shipping after the auction ends? Then wait for buyer to pay the new price? Or do I change the price in Paypal?
-Sorry for all the questions, I just want to do it right the first time so I can learn from here on out how to go about adjusting prices and shipping for buyers in other countries.
