    In Canada, GSP collects and rapes you up front. USPS you can get lucky and it gets missed. If they do collect, They convert the USD to CAD and then it's 10$ + 18% duty +13% tax so it can add up quick.

    Question regarding funds getting put on hold (as a seller)...

    If I understand this right: The "counter" (how much you sell) will be reseted periodically?
    I have 100% rating, have sold over 25 items, have sold for thousands of dollars, always sold the same type of stuff, but sill get the hold.

    Does this mean that I have to continuously sell stuff, all year round, in order to get the money right away.

    Kinda sucks when you're just a casual seller, mostly selling expensive items. It's almost as If I have to go out and buy a bundle of hundred ties, and sell them on a monthly basis.

    Edit: I'm also a seller based in Norway, so literally 0.1% of my sales go to other Norwegians (through Ebay). The vast majority of customers are in the US, and then UK, Australia, or Hong-Kong.

    I see the Ebay policy states that x number of sales only count when done domestically...so I guess that means I'll never get past the holding period? As my address is registered in Norway, and I never sell to anyone here.

    One for the blocked list. Played the SNAD return game so he didn't have to pay shipping. Said shirt I sent was "dirty and unwearable" Came back in the same mint condition I sent it in:
