    Overseas, yes. Italy in particular, no. If this is on ebay and you can use the Global Shipping Program then certainly do so.
    No offense to Italians but their Customs people often seem to hold them hostage demanding excessive duties. Not your fault but it results in a soured deal. GSP doesn't seem to have that problem.

    If you do not want to ship overseas and buyer is willing to assume risks of shipping that can work to. I did it that way back when I had a small business.

    You need to make it very cleat that the radio is AS-IS, and that you have zero responsibility for his customs fees. Also, take photos as you box it,on the scale as you send it, and of the receipt. State buyer accepts al responsibility for shipping damages, and NO RETURNS. Of course, get money first.

    Italy and Malta were AWFUL to ship to in my very long eBay selling experience.

    Anymore, just the customs forms hassles have ruled out overseas shipping for me.

    Just my 2 cents - I sold a great many radio bits around the world starting in 1999 but not any more

    Make sure everybody understands in front, who is paying for the shipping. Cost of international shipping can be astounding.

    I have in the past but don't anymore. Too much extra hassle. Maybe very small stuff but that would be about it.
