I've never shipped outside the US, an ebay buyer asked if I would ship to Norway. I'm willing, but I don't know the first thing about shipping internationally.

Is it safe?
Much more expensive?
Will there be a customs fee?
Can I do insurance and sig confirmation?

Any help much appreciated, auction ends tonight! :smile:

I would ship it USPS Global Express just so you have tracking. A little more expensive, but worth it should buyer claim they never received it. Customs fees are charged to buyer. But in general, I don't ship expensive items overseas anymore, only because of the amount of scams going on these days. It just isn't worth it to me, so I block international buyers on big ticket items. I would like to be able to show up on my scammers doorstep....not so easy if they are a continent away. :angel:

Hi, I have had a few packages (ebay buys) sendt from US.

Yes, it is safe.
Yes, the buyer would probably have to pay customs fee. In Norway we have to pay duty on items over $30-$35/ NOK 200. ( Gifts can have the value up to $180/ NOK 1000, no customs fee)
Yes, you can do insurance and sign. confirmation.
