Ebay question, international shipping?

So I bought my brothers nikon d90, selling my canon rebel xsi 450d (with a couple lenses) on ebay.

A couple of people have asked me to ship it internationally. One to Italy one to Russia. I am leery to ship it internationally.

Does anyone have experience doing so??

Thanks in advance

I avoid international auctions. Lots can go wrong.

We ship international on eBay all the time. Check the feedback before doing anything, make sure it is recent and 50+, more importantly make sure they know about customs fee's, they are high in both countries.

I shipped internationally a few times. If you ship USPS, you must do Express mail or there is no tracking number. Almost got screwed when I sold my iPhone and shipped it through Priority.

I just wouldn't. Make sure their address is 100% verified, if they give you a different address than STAY AWAY. I let my international buyers know that I will wait 3-5 days until the funds have cleared before I mail.

Just check the buyer's feedback. It's no hassle at all. I've shipped to Romania and some weird places. eBay is very protected.
