Course Timeline:
S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to talk about how to pin-point the best price for an item that you’re going to sell using eBay’s advanced search pages. S2: When it comes to determining the right price for the right item, it is questions that even any experienced and new eBay sellers share the same sentiment “How much should I sell this for?” Generally it is best to search for the Best Offer of the accepted item’s price. To search completed listings for similar or exactly the same item on eBay: 1. Click the Advanced Find link in the upper right hand corner of most any eBay page. 2. On the Advanced Find page, enter the KEYWORD search. 3. Check the appropriate box for Condition whether it’s New or Used. S3: 4. 5. 6. Scroll further down the page and select the box for Sold Items. Optional: On the left side, click the box to search US only listings Click the button to Search Now. On the search results pages, the completed and sold listings appear. In the Sort drop down box, select the option to sort by “Highest price plus shipping” Using 6 simple steps above, you can see what similar items are selling for by looking at these completed search results listings. If desired, click one of the completed listings to see the item auction description to verify the item is exactly you think it is. If an item sells quickly at the Buy It Now price, some sellers may think that they let the item go at too low of a price. In fact, some sellers may think they could have received more for the item and greed sets in. Second guessing the price of an item that has already sold is easy to do, but not healthy. As long as a seller had made money on the item (after all fees, of course), then selling the item was a success and the overall store inventory turnover ratio has been improved. S4 If an item has sold with a Best Offer, the asking price is crossed out. To see the accepted Best Offer price, do the following: 1. 2. 3. Click to view the complete item auction detail page Click the link near the top of the item description page “see original listing” On the original listing page, scroll down to where the auction item number is stated S5: 4. Just above the item number, is a link to print the page 5. Click the Print link. The print item page will display the accepted Best Offer price. Continue to research other sold items by returning to the Advanced Search Results and repeating the steps above to identify the selling price of a Best Offer acceptance. S6: It is possible to view the Best Offer price “Sold” on eBay, all you had to do is following 6 simple steps down below: Click to view the complete item auction detail page 1. 2. On a completed item page, the item number is not visible. To view the item number, navigate to the URL address bar and look for a 12 digit number. 3.

S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to talk about how to build traffic to your eBay Store with several straightforward strategies that is widely practice by e-commerce practitioners. When it comes to building up traffic to your eBay Store, information is the essential key which will help you build up your eBay store significantly. That being said, all you ever need is to focus on 7 simple steps and master it and everything from here on will be as smooth as sailing for your eBay Store’s success. S2: Have you heard of the saying 'Content is Everything? Well there is a lot of truth in that. When ranking products based on the Best Match criteria on eBay your listing has to match that of your searchers, so the content you use in your Product Title has to match that of your search, the closest listing goes top. There are other criteria involved like your feedback, your sales history, the category your product is in, etc, but it all starts with the product title. Placing keywords strategically in your content is not only vital for eBay but also for your eBay listings ranking in the Google and other search engine results. Search engines rank you on different attributes like Page Title, META keywords, descriptions, and content on the page. As Google ranks eBay listings fast and gives it high placements in its search results, why not put the time in to not only maximise your eBay ranking but also your off eBay rankings too. Take the free traffic on offer from Google as these visitors will enter your eBay store and buy. : Using video in your listings when hosted on YouTube can get you tons of extra traffic from the search engines and video engines alone, Google in particular. Google loves video and because you assign a title, description and tags (keywords) to your video when uploading it, this information will get you good listings, if done correctly. So if you strategically use your keywords and key phrases in these attributes and match these with your visitors search then your videos will have a great chance of appearing top 10 in Google and other search and video engines. Simply add a Url link to the intro and the end of your videos and if you like all the way through and take this free traffic from the search engines. S4: eBay Start and end times to Buy It Now listings are vital to ensure you maximise sales when people search using the end time search criteria. To fully maximise this option look at the Terapeak data as it will tell you the exact times when people buy based on previous eBay results data. Running GTC listings will give you longevity of these product listings in the non eBay search engines like Google and overtime your product will be in the top 10 results in Google for your given keyword. Traffic will then enter your eBay shop from the Google results. Take this opportunity to use the free search engine traffic. S5: eBay Buyers Guides are a superb way of generating traffic from eBay and Google. On eBay your guides are presented in some results often in the left or right columns under the heading 'Related Guides' and also from the guides section that is a very active area of the eBay site. Why? Because the buyers guides rank in the top 10 Google search results, so when you have 2 or 3 entry points alone from these guides the buyer's will also guides also give you credibility and authority in your niche building confidence and trust in your product. S6: Use external sites to generate traffic and send this directly to your eBay shop and products. You can do this via blog sites, article sites and directories, social networking pages, classified ads and even ecommerce stores. Try the new eBay to Go data feed by displaying eBay listings on the above sites sending targeted ready to buy traffic to view your products in your eBay store. Google has blog software called Blogger and they even host it for you and the charge is free. The most popular self hosted blog software is WordPress and this has some really good SEO add-on modules and of course like Blogger it's free. S7: The more links a web page has (link popularity) and the higher quality links (link reputation) a web page has the higher it will ultimately be ranked by Google. This goes for eBay pages as well as non eBay pages so get linking if you want traffic from other means such as Google. Higher quality links basically means the page it is linking from, is this related to the destination site and also what does the link say (anchor text) does it have keywords in the link itself. So if you are strategic about this you can link from your eBay buyers guides to your shop and from your product listings to your shop and the key is from external sites directly to your shop using good keyword rich anchor text. Next watch your traffic expand as you not only gain eBay traffic but also traffic from Google and other search engines. Page Rank is also involved in the quality of links when using Google and again this is simply the quality of the page that the links are from, the higher the PR the better it gets. S8: Get subscribers and communicate often with them to offer your products and services. Place a newsletter email option box on your eBay shop and all of your websites. Add an RSS news feed subscribe link to your about page, ask them questions via surveys, run competitions, give away freebies and your customers will see you as an authority and expert in your field or niche and will hang on every word you say. Then when you offer them products and services they will buy from YOU.
S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to talk about how to sell on eBay by firstly coming up with your own list of items followed by how to wrap up the sales with your buyer. S2: Next comes to the part where you can officially start working around with your eBay store. When it comes to listing your items, the listing format should appear automatically in your Store and can be develop using the standard eBay listing form, Turbo Lister, Selling Manager Pro, or which in case you should have your Selling Manager which you subscribe to if you refer to Chapter 2. S3: To create a listing, you are required to provide your item’s title, description, price, and shipping and payment information. To make your listing even more interactive while reducing the time you spend answering questions you can add pictures covering all the essential angles of the item and standardize your post format. 1. Get started Click “Sell” at the top of most eBay page. 2. Create your listing Depending on your item and how you choose to list it, you may have different options. S4: -Write a good title and description: By providing a title that’s clear, complete and descriptive, it helps buyers to clearly understand the item that you’re currently selling. If necessary, state exactly what the item is even if it repeats the category name. Any details such as the brand, product name, size or artist is essential to be included in your item’s description. -Provide item specifics: There are certain categories where you have the option of selecting the item specifics. By providing extra item details will make it even convenient for buyers to find your item. Take for instance, an item specific is the condition of the item. Moreover these specific can be included in your Q&A. - Specify the condition of the item: When it comes to specifying the condition of the item, the details may vary depending on the item’s category but accurately describing your item gives buyers confidence that they will get the item they want. - Include product details from our catalog: In eBay most of the items that are commonly sold have standard photos and product details for you to use. If you opted to use their product photos and details, it may save your time from conducting further research as well as taking photos of the product. S5: - Add pictures to your listing: When it comes to adding pictures into your listing, it is best to use high quality pictures with various angles to gain your buyer’s interest. - Select a selling format: You can either choose from auction-style, fixed price or Classified Ad formats. With auction-style listings, you receive bids on your item and sell to the highest bidder. You can even include a Buy It Now price, which lets the buyer purchase the item before the listing’s end date. With fixed price listings, you ca list your items at a set price where buyers can purchase right away. Whereas for classified ads, you can advertise on eBay just as you’d use a traditional classified advert. You can even state a price followed by the buyer contacting you and you can handle the transaction personally. - Choose a starting price: This includes understanding pricing options to help you get the price you want for your item. Most buyers are looking for great selection at a great price. As buyers often search for items that have a low combined price and shipping charge, you should consider both of these factors carefully. Moreover by setting fair online pricing, keeping your seller rating high, and offering a fair price for shipping will get your items more visible through the default search method which is Best Match. There are sellers who choose to price their items low to increase search visibility and at the same time set a reserve, which means they will get fair value when the item sells. - Select a listing duration: Most auction-style listings last 7 days while the duration of more than 7 days can incur a fee and change some upgrade and insertion fees. You can also schedule your listing to start at a specific time. S6: - Select the payment methods you’ll accept: For community safety, PayPal or Internet merchant credit card payment options are required in most categories while these methods made it easy for your buyer to pay you right away so you can ship the item faster. - Specify your shipping costs and locations: You can charge a flat cost to all buyers or calculate shipping costs based on the item you’re selling and the buyer’s location, or you can offer free shipping to attract more potential buyers. Moreover you can also offer local pickup to buyers who live near you. - Specify your return policy: All sellers on eBay are required to specify a return policy, whether they accept returns or not. Buyers are more comfortable shopping with sellers who have clear return policies. If you accept returns, a buyer can return an item for any reason, even if they change their mind about a purchase. This is absolutely true as long as the return meets your return requirements. - Promote your item with listing upgrades: Listing upgrades, such as using a subtitle can help your listing stand out. S7: 3. Preview your listing You can preview and edit your listing on the Review page. Click the Preview your listing link to see how your listing will appear. Click the Edit link if you’d like to change something. 4. List your item When you’re ready, click List to post your listing on eBay. S8: When it comes to handling the final sale depends entirely on how you persuade and convince your customer while getting good feedback. - Communicate with your buyer: With eBay checkout, you will be notified by email from eBay when the buyer has completed a checkout. eBay checkout essentially lets your buyer send you an electronic payment right after your listing ends. - Receive payment: Before shipping the item to the buyer, make sure the buyer have paid you and that the payment has been accepted and credited to your eBay account. If you listed in a category that lets you accept checks, make sure the check has cleared the bank. - Ship the item to the buyer safely and on time: Pack up the item as secure as possible and make sure the shipment information is correct and includes your return address. If you create your shipping label and packing slip on eBay, you can use a free carrier pickup which is only available with orders that include Priority Mail or for a small on-demand fee which saves you a time heading to the post office. - Leave your buyer Feedback: Lastly your feedback about your buyer is significant for other sellers as feedback represents your reputation as an eBay member which is made up of comments and ratings.

S2: When it comes to selling stuff on eBay most people would certainly have came up with an idea on what they would like to sell. Most of the time, people usually would stick to items that they are knowledgeable or familiar with and expand from there into a selling business. So if you are in a clueless situation and could not decide on what to sell, your best bet is to go with selling something that you have knowledge about or an interest in. If you are familiar with technology such as computers or any electronic hardware, sell that. This aspect is varied from clothing’s, books, accessories, etc. By kicking things off with items you are familiar with would reduce the initial risk of item purchasing as you should be familiar with the pricing expectancy as well as how much you could make up from it. S3: Even though it may be easier just to stick with selling items that you are knowledgeable and familiar with. What if you could earn more by selling items that have higher value than the market price or selling items that is highly profitable? Now if you are looking to earn way more than the usual than any other eBay sellers out there, there is only 4 simple ways to learn and apply it to your online business. S4: The easiest way to find the hot selling item is literally right under your nose at the eBay homepage. These items are not simply marked for being hot sell or top sell. When it comes to items that are marked as being hot is due to fact that the item is highly bid by lots of people. S5: Another simple way to look for items that allows you to search for hot selling items is look for successful auctions from recent results. Coupled with comprehensive research from various types of auctions, you should be able to narrow down to the items that are trending in sales.

S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to talk about what tools that you really need when it comes to running a e- commerce business. S2: Now if you have set-up your eBay store and already determine what you are planning to sell, the next step is to have all the essential tools to get things up and running. Technically the things you need should already be readily use for you such as a computer, smartphone and a camera. Other than that you need a printer and shipping supplies to package the products to send out. That is just the physical tools that you need, next are the digital tools such as mobile applications. There are various applications that you can choose from that helps you with listing out your items as well as keeping track of your sales. That being said let’s look into the physical tools that we need before starting up selling at eBay. S3: The only reason you should ever get yourself a printer is just for printing the shipping labels. If you’re planning to get one a personal printer, a laser jet printer would be preferable but inkjet would do fine as well. In the end it really depends on how your budget and how much you would like to invest on a printer. That being said, getting a personal printer is not entirely necessary. If you have a local printer services around your neighborhood, that would save up cost. S4: When sending out your eBay items, you can save time and money by just paying for postage online and printing your own postage labels. All you need to do is print the label on a normal A4 paper and tape it to the package. -Your postage label is filled out automatically with your buyer’s name and delivery address – no need for data entry or writing labels out by hand - You can print your labels on an ordinary printer, using regular A4 paper - no need for special labels. - You can create and print a pre-filled packing slip, detailing what you are sending to your buyer. - Paying online means less time at the Post Office - or save you the trip. - Tracking information appears automatically in my eBay for both you and the buyer. S5: Before I jump into getting shipping supplies, if you are not keen on doing packaging and shipping or would prefer to save time you can opt for third party services to help you out with that process. Now if you are opting for handling the packaging and shipping process, firstly you need the packing materials. Gather empty boxes which can either be purchased from office supply stores or you could just find at dumpsters. If you are opting to use USPS, they will send you free Priority Mail boxes if you plan to ship using their services. S6: Suffice to say even though you can work around eBay store with just the use of your computer or your laptop. What if you are in a situation where your trusty computer is by your side? Compared to several years back when the idea of running an e-commerce business can only be done through your computer. In the age of smart phones, mobile applications are more than enough capable of running software similar to our computers or even laptops. Even e-commerce sites are not out of the loop to jump into mobile applications. Now with mobile applications you can even handle your eBay store with just a mobile phone. That being said there are various mobile apps that you could consider and the ones that I will recommend will not be exactly far fetch from similar mobile apps as well. S7: Essentially a pocket store for you to manage buy/sell through your smart phone, it is free for download and available for iOS, Android and Window, BlackBerry. When it comes to selling items on eBay from your mobile device, you can create a listing with a simple form and there a list of things you can do as well. - Research sales trends and completed listings for similar items to set a competitive price for your item. - Take pictures with your device and add them to your listing, it's fast and easy. - Scan your item's barcode to add product details that are in our catalogue automatically. - Pre define and save your listing preferences like handling time and return policy. -Use the “Sell one like this” features to auto-fill some of your item details. S8: Last but not least the fees for selling on eBay are the same when using eBay’s mobile apps, and the same rules and policies apply. That being said there are setbacks to this app as well such as browsing through completed listing which in this is best to browse it through website browsers to get the most accurate data. When it comes to showing all sold items through eBay mobile, the feature may show inaccurate numbers, take for example you buy something for $14 because you see on the eBay mobile it has sold for $40-$50 you get home and see lots have sold for $20 as well. Least you do if you are interested on that particular - Accept PayPal as a payment method. - Track your active listings. - Relist items. - Provide tracking information to buyers (not yet available on our BlackBerry app) and respond to questions straight away. item, it is best to bookmark or save the page link and use the web browser instead. S9: Besides being a general percent calculation its features includes calculators for discount, markup and profit margin as well while with its advanced mode allows you to plug in any numbers to figure out the percentage. Take for example: X% of Y is Z or X is Y% of Z. You can even type in the number into 2 out of 3 of the choices and the app will calculate the answer for you.
S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to going to share with you some tips on how to source items for your eBay Store. S2: Now what exactly is product sourcing? It simply means "Finding products to sell through your business". As easy as it sounds, mastering this process can mean the difference between success and failure for your eCommerce business. Product sourcing is something that truly successful Internet Sellers take very seriously; it's a cornerstone of their success. S3: Let me share with you some of the sourcing techniques. There's one thing you have to know. If you plan to build a serious income with your selling, you have to find renewable product sources that can provide you with a constant, stable stream of goods. In other words, you need to source your products from genuine wholesale suppliers. Working with wholesale suppliers also means you're getting wholesale prices and, therefore, the best-possible profit margins. There are five main product sourcing methods: Number 1: Drop Shipping Number 2: Volume Wholesale Number 3: Importing Number 4: Light bulk Number 5: Liquidation S4: 1. Drop shipping First method is drop shipping... What's a drop shipper? A drop-shipper is a legitimate wholesale supplier who will deliver a product from the wholesale warehouse directly to your customer. S5: This product sourcing does not require the retailer to maintain an inventory or handle shipping. The downside of this technique is that the profit margins are not very large because there is a back- end cost associated with drop-shipping. The wholesalers have to charge a little more for the products because they are doing all the work of picking, packing and shipping individuals for the retailers. S6: 2. Volume Wholesale Next, let's talk about volume wholesale This is a product sourcing technique which retailers buy products from their wholesale supplier in large quantities. The larger the quantity purchased directly from the wholesale the higher discounts received by the seller. S7: Discounts will be added for the retailer who buys in large volumes. Not just that, a different wholesale pricing structures will be used depending on how much money the retailer is willing to spend. This is normal with all suppliers. The more money the retailer spends on inventory results in more discounts. The more discounts on wholesale they get results in better profit margins. S8: As for the handling of storage and shipping, retailers have to be responsible for it. S9: 3. Importing The third product sourcing method is importing products directly. By using this sourcing product technique, it means that retailers purchase goods from international countries. Importing can be done individually or through wholesalers that handle the importing procedure where production is cheaper. However, there is risk involved and the delivery times take an average of three months or more. S10: This method is generally not practical for the start-up entrepreneur or even many experienced entrepreneurs. They are better off sourcing from established wholesale suppliers. It is more suitable for strongly established businesses which are able to take greater risks. S11: 4. Light bulk – As for light bulk, it is a product sourcing method where the seller purchases from a wholesaler in quantities less than $500. For this sourcing technique, retailers in charge of all aspects of warehousing the products and shipping them to their customers. S12: With bulk quantities, comes greater discounts. This will increase the profit margins of the seller. S13: 5. Liquidation The fifth product sourcing method is liquidation. It is a product sourcing technique where a seller can source commercial surplus inventory and closeout products through wholesalers. The manufacturers or suppliers often sell it for a small percentage of the wholesale cost when they have excess merchandise. S14: Retailers can purchase this merchandise in lots from B2B auction websites or reclamation centres. Using this method as a loss leader is another great method for driving traffic to other stores and auctions. Through OneSource, sellers have the ability to search through the product database of well known and well respected liquidators. 5 Simple Tips and Tricks to Sourcing Inventory on eBay 1) Use browser extensions such as Context Search and Invisible Hand 2) Retailers can spend on inventory from other sellers with the PayPal funds that they received S15: 5 Simple Tips and Tricks to Sourcing Inventory on eBay 1) Use browser extensions such as Context Search and Invisible Hand. Context search allows you to search between search engines, Amazon, and other sites without having to copy and paste. Now, let's talk about the 5 simple tips and tricks to sourcing inventory on eBay... I am going to share with you 5 important tips and tricks that I use on an everyday basis that will help you out. 2) You can sell your things on eBay. You can spend on inventory from other sellers with the PayPal funds that you received. It is another way to gain feedback and it allows sellers to know that you are serious when sending offers and buying in bulk. S16: 3) Don’t be afraid to make an offer. The worst thing a seller can do is to say no. Not just that you don't have be afraid to buy from new sellers. It is very common to hear that buyers are less likely to buy from new sellers. You don't have to because even if the items ended up being not what you wanted, you'll be able to get your money back. 4) It is better to buy in bulk. Buying in bulk often means that you can get them at a higher discount. This discount is offered due to the saving on the shipping cost. By receiving higher discounts, this means that you get to have bigger profit margins for your inventory. 5) Take advantage of cash back options. One that is often overlooked is eBay Bucks. With eBay bucks, you get 2% cash back quarterly in the form of a gift certificate, with a maximum of $500 awarded per quarter.
S1: Hello! Welcome and thank you for choosing this video course. In this video I am going to talk about how to conduct and process out your shipping locally and internationally. S2: You can use eBay to create shipping labels and packing slips for items you've sold on eBay. Take for instance you can use eBay to print US Postal Service and FedEx labels, or to print several USPS labels at once. When you use eBay labels to ship an item, you are only required to pay the shipping cost and the cost of any shipping services you choose, such as signature confirmation. 1. Go to My eBay. 2. Click Sold on the left side of the page in the Sell section. 3. Find the item you want to ship, and then select Print shipping label from the More actions drop-down menu. o Note: For UPS labels, you're taken to PayPal. 4. Make sure your address and the buyer's address on the shipping label are correct. To create a single shipping label in My eBay: 5. Select the carrier (USPS, UPS, or FedEx) from the Carrier drop-down menu in the package details section. S3: 6. Select the shipping method from the Service drop-down menu. 7. Enter the package details including type, weight, and dimensions. 8. Select any additional services you need (fees may apply). o If you're shipping with USPS and your transaction is $750 or more, signature confirmation is required. 9. Click Print postage label. 10. Make selections and click Print. S4: You can attract more buyers and get higher placement in search results by offering free shipping. You can offer free shipping by following these steps: 1. In the Sell your item form, select Flat: Same cost to all buyers or Calculated: Cost varies by buyer location. 2. Select a shipping service from the Services drop-down menu. 3. Select the Free Shipping checkbox. If you're using a listing TOOL that doesn't have the Free Shipping checkbox, specify your shipping cost as "0." If you select the Free Shipping check box, this will set handling costs to "0" for your buyers when they select free shipping. Your listing will appear in search results with the word "Free shipping" prominently displayed. S5: It's important to pack your items properly so that they aren't damaged in shipping. When packing your item, choose a box that's slightly larger than the item you're sending so you can cushion the item with packing material on all sides. Make sure your box is in good condition and sturdy enough to survive the trip. Next, pack the item with bubble wrap, peanuts, foam, or paper so there's no room for your item to move around in the package. On a side note, if you're shipping very fragile items, like glassware, it is best that you use something more secure than paper to pack your items. When it comes to taping the packaging use a clear or brown packaging tape, reinforced packing tape, or paper tape and the tape should be at least 2 inches wide. Do not use masking tape, cellophane tape, cord, string, or twine as they are not tangible enough. All you have to do is tape the opening of the box and reinforce all seams. S6: By having a full understanding on how to have a smooth shipping process, you will be able spend less time covering problems extended from your shipping process as well as covering any cost. Here are a few tips that you can practice that would certainly help you in the long run for your e-commerce business: -Know your shipping charges: Pack your item for shipment after you take pictures—but before you list—so you can have accurate package weight and dimensions to include during the listing process. - Package your items carefully: Make sure your item arrives safely by packing it securely. Use a sturdy box that's the right size, make sure to include enough packing material, and tape it securely. - Buyers typically want their items quickly, so the faster you can get your items shipped, the happier your buyers will be. Consider offering either same business day or 1 business day handling, and tell your buyer when an item shipped. By meeting certain shipping conditions, you can automatically receive 5-star detailed seller rating for shipping time. Ship quickly: - Save time and hassle with package pickup and insurance: You will be able to save time if the desired postal services have free package pickup. If you sell valuable items, consider purchasing shipping insurance. Check with your shipping carrier for insurance options. You can also purchase shipping insurance when you create and print shipping labels on eBay. Remember, you can include the cost of insurance in the item's price or handling cost, but you can't charge a separate fee for insurance. - Provide tracking information: You can upload your own tracking or Delivery Confirmation information in My eBay. But remember that to be covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee you are required to provide signature confirmation for packages valued at more than $750. If your transaction is $750 or more, signature confirmation will be preselected for you. You can remove this option, however, requiring a signature at delivery helps protect you if your buyer doesn't receive the item and opens a case. - Generate repeat business: Last but not least, include a business card or not with your eBay user ID to thank your buyer for their business. S7: Now let’s say if you are dealing with international buyers, it’s best to contact your customer what options do they prefer due to the fact that international shipping involves customs and duty fees that can cost a big amount for the buyer. That being said, it’s easier said than done for the case of international shipping but if you are able conduct international shipping you are pretty much expanding your e-commerce business worldwide. Technically it isn’t as difficult or confusing than shipping locally and all you need to familiarize with is the shipping cost, customs regulations and insurance. S8: Just like with local shipping, it’s important to get the costs right so you don’t lose money or customers. However, that doesn’t mean you need to know the cost of shipping to every single country in the world. You can check it online (for example with USPS’s shipping calculator) or taking a sample package to your local Post Office and finding out these key pieces of information: With this information you can kick-start it by setting up with just 1 or 2 different international rates while using the highest cost to be sure you don’t lose money. As you get orders from other countries, you can research those as you go and expand your settings by adding rates for those countries, if they are very different. S9: Every country has different regulations regarding import taxes and acceptable import products so it’s not feasible to research all of it. It is standard practice, with retailers large and small, that the customer is the one liable for any import fees and duties. That being said, it is worthwhile to include that information in your FAQ section so it doesn’t take the customer by surprise when they suddenly get a bill for extra charges. You should be aware of any regulations regarding the import (and export) of your specific product, at least for the countries you most-commonly ship to. Obviously animal and plant products, foods and chemicals are most likely to be restricted but some countries also have laws around items such as electronics, jewellery and precious metals etc. Be sure to fill out any forms accurately and in detail. If customs has to seize a package because the description of the contents isn’t detailed enough or doesn’t seem to match the contents this will mean long delays on shipping times or even the destruction of the package. It is also illegal to mark an item as a gift when it is not. Customers may ask you to do that so they don’t have to pay import taxes, but you will be the one liable if it is discovered. S10: Tracking and insurance can mean a significant price increase on international shipments, depending on the shipping provider. However, the risk of packages getting lost in international transit is typically higher because the package is usually transferred from one shipping service to another. Providing the option of tracking at an additional cost to the customer is one way to prevent this. Alternatively you can build sufficient flexibility into your pricing such that you are able to replace the occasional package when it goes missing. This option may work out cheaper in the long run, depending on the additional cost of insurance and the frequency at which packages go missing. Don’t be freaked out if your shipping costs turn out to be quite high once you have done the research. Obviously it’s great if you can find cheaper solutions but there’s no point cutting costs if it’s just going to lose you money. International customers are usually well aware that they will have to pay high shipping costs and they are happy to do so to get hold of the products they really love and can’t find anywhere else!
