I've sent the buyer a message but they won't respond. They requested an invoice but I clearly don't ship to Saudi Arabia, what do I do now?

They were allowed to bid because you don't have your BLOCKS in place.
Go to My eBay > ACCOUNT tab > SITE PREFERENCES > Buyer requirements
Block buyers who: (and choose any/all of these)
Don't have a PayPal account (99% of the scammers don't)
Have received 2 Unpaid Item strike(s) within 12 Month(s)
(automatically blocks proven deadbeats)
Have a primary shipping address in a location I don't ship to
(blocks foreign countries from bidding)
Have 4 Policy Violation report(s) within 6 Month(s)
Have a feedback score of -1 or lower (that's minus 1)
You can get a price to ship that item - WITH proof of delivery - VERY EXPENSIVE. And if they don't pay - file the Unpaid Item Report.
Or you can try to the "cancel transaction" form - but if they DENY / DECLINE that - you don't get your FVF back. And they can give you negative feedback and bad DSR STARS ratings.
