    I don't know how you will win a dispute. The Burberry knight says prorsum on it. Its still a nice coat though.

    Safe to ship to Australia? Anything to worry about?

    What is the safest way to ship? USPS priority? will that have tracking all the way there?

    Also interested in this - I just sold 5 items there and need to know what kind of shipping to invoice.

    Just MHO but I disagree. This is an opportunity to contribute to science.

    Thesis: There is an "OxyMethod" equivalent for wool items.
    Method: Soak several roughly identical items in, variously, water (control), Woolite solution, Oxy solution (we already know from GMMcL, 2012, that many reds and grays are not color safe. Is this true for all?), an Oxy solution (perhaps Oxy pet) that soaks only the lining portions, and a variety of other methods for a period of 24 hours or more. Do not wring or hang wet wool; wool will stretch. Lay flat to dry. Re-dry clean all.
    Results: [This is where you come in]


    Shipped a few times. No issues.

    No problems, use the ship insure in international shipping just in case.

    However shipping to Russia can officially kiss my ballsack. Blocked all Russians today. Hated to do it, but I have had far to many issues lately.

    I've shipped there many times never an issue and find the buyers always pay immediately. Fwiw my priority mail items have all been tracked to delivery

    In before Brian says "Just call Ebay customer support". (Which is the right answer, by the way)

    You have to have 25 posts I believe (maybe 20).

    I have shipped hundreds of items to Australia without any problems. Priority Mail insured is how I usually do it.

    With Russia I have been lucky. About 10 shipments over the last couple of years, no problems. Most of those have been SF deals, though. I am convinced that the scam/trouble factor on ebay is much greater.
