    Thank you

      Hello Chris

      Sellers that do allow international shipping do not usually specify specific countries, but will specify that you should request an international shipping quote. It is best to do this through the "Ask the Seller a Question" facility on each listing before placing bids or buying.

          I've had equally good success when posting to Germany, Holland and the UK.

            Hi

            I have buyers from Gabarone and India, I have never shipped items outside of South Africa. What are the steps and is it worth going through all that trouble. What advise can you give me.

              I have shipped all over the World ( Canada, America, Various European countries, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand & within Africa to various) and with all countries you need to familiarize yourself with what is available. Get hold of a SAPO Booklet and study all the overseas options for future use. There are different ways to post parcels overseas...Small package is easiest & cheapest for small items, it is for up to 2kg BUT the closer to 2kg you get it then becomes cheaper to use Airmail large parcel ! I always Register my small parcels as then you have a Tracking number. So be careful when quoting postage to include that. Large Parcels get a tracking number anyway, but also have more "paperwork" needed for customs. If you are stuck please feel free to send me exact weights and destinations (PM me) and I will give you more accurate info.

                  USPS Priority: cheaper, little slower, with tracking - Tracking UNTIL parcel leaves US Customs. After that.... nope. After a couple of weeks, parcels, once they arrive in receiving Country's Customs, and IF they have been scanned, can be tracked ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGE TRACKING, but not via www.usps.com. And, no insurance, so if parcel 'goes missing'... oh, well, too bad.
                  USPS Express: fast, inexpensive and reliable, with tracking - Tracking yes, but far from 'inexpensive'. Medium flat rate box (13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" or 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" - Maximum weight 20 pounds), for example, with a declared value of $100.00USD, costs $61.75USD.
                  FedEx, DHL, TNT: very fast and reliable, large discounts - 'large discounts' only applies to large companies / businesses who ship hundreds, if not thousands, of parcels each month. For the 'small guy', it costs an arm and a leg.

                  Like a lot of things now-a-days, it may 'look good' on paper, when the reality is 'not so much'.

                    Not too bad to ship out of SA (1-3 weeks), but try shipping airmail INTO SA, and u wait 2-6 months.
