Definitely regular ebay.com. 

 

As jas0nt said, there's only a small pool of people in Australia that like/appreciate/are prepared to pay for decent clothing. 

 

Also, if you list on ebay.com.au, it won't show up for international customers unless they specifically choose the "worldwide" option when doing a search (and maybe not even then). 

 

Therefore, I think that regular eBay is your best bet when selling most things.

It gets so messy with the shipping options though. I imagine they can more easily raise disputes because of the tracking/shipping confirmation etc process

That has crossed my mind as well. I don't have the patience to comb PayPal terms and conditions from other countries in case anything goes sour. PayPal Australia and other countries T&Cs aren't the same to my knowledge.

At the end of the day you just need to ensure you have an option that covers tracking and signature, if the delivery company has their signature or a signature from the delivery address on file you are golden.  If it never made it to them then paypal reverses it and you've got to deal with the delivery company to get your money back.  

 

That being said you are far better off just advertising here imo, if the transaction is done through paypal and you instruct them to pay it as a service/good then you have similar protections.

It does get messy with shipping options. 

 

I don't think that it would be easier for the purchaser to raise a dispute as long as (as has been pointed out) you use the minimum necessary level of tracking etc required by eBay/Paypal. 

 

The big issue is shipping costs, as thanks to Australia Post's sky-high charges for international shipping nowadays, it costs about $80 to send a pair of shoes to the UK. You're pretty much never going to agree to get a buyer to pay you that much for shipping so I'd think that the only option is to subsidise shipping costs. That is provided, of course, that eBay actually allows you the option nowadays of charging a lower-than-actual shipping cost. 

 

Still, what's better - selling your shoes for a couple of hundred and having to spend $40 on subsidising shipping, or not selling the shoes at all and having them sitting unworn in your wardrobe? 

 

[Disclaimer: I have a number of unworn pairs of shoes sitting in my wardrobe because I can't be bothered listing them for sale on eBay or Styleforum!]

Never knew it costs that much as I've never sent something to the UK, but holy smokes that's crazy.

A pair of shoes with trees shipped to uk just cost me $113aud with tracking. Was over 3kgs

Also re:loafers ive got the GC Aiden's in dark mahogany, prefer it due to the braided tassel.

 

Im trying to get a pair of JL Campus 12 in black suede (penny loafer)

"esparadrille boots? " careful romp - you'll have that hipster dial up around 9 or 10 and lots of bottom end..

Thank you!

I was thinking to myself "How many roads must a man walk down before they call him a man?"

Still, I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.
