    Well, I can't say I ever encountered the situation but I do know that the cost is far more then shipping within the "states". Import /export charges. You didn't mention whether or not YOU offered to cover ALL shipping charges. The purchaser SHOULD pay the shipping. If so, then I wouldn't have a problem if you wish to pay $75 to have something shipped when it normally costs around $30. I suspect that most VE's don't know the hidden costs associated with this issue and perhaps that is why many just opt not to offer it for sale since the shipping will be exceedingly expensive. Afterall, if I am listing something for $250 or so, why would I offer to split the shipping when I can sell it within the "states" and pretty much retain my $250 I asked for the item.

    I received a shipment for ZL land some time ago. Wasn't that bad actually.
