Looking for a way to boost sales? Silly question. Who isn’t, right? Offering your items to an international audience is one of the easiest ways to make it happen.
It might sound intimidating, but international selling and shipping doesn’t have to be scary. In this blog post, we’ll share tips for making your listings attractive to global buyers to maximize your international selling opportunity.

List an item, and to give your buyer an accurate cost, you have to figure out international shipping costs, import taxes and forms, etc. If the item sells to an international buyer, you mail the item to them directly.
If you’re hesitant to ship directly, there’s another way. You can sell all of your eligible items through eBay’s Global Shipping Program (GSP). It’s as easy as domestic shipping – all you need to do is list your item and select GSP as a shipping option. If it sells to an international buyer, you ship it to the Global Shipping Center in Kentucky. After it reaches the Global Shipping Center, it is shipped to its final international destination.
