    whats adalan?

    your product must cost more than $75 if you offer free shipping as international shipping cost a lot. :D
    or at least bidding would start at it.

    whats your product anyway?

    its useless to sell products that are cheap on ebay and keep shipping the items daily.
    I recommend selling items that can be shipped electronically or can be sent as information, softwares..etc

    Beyond that, here is a case and point (after around 20-30 hours of research) I found out FREE SHIPPING causes products to sell for about 3 usd LESS on average!

    i.e.

    10 usd sale + FREE SHIPPING = 7.71 after fees and all
    8 usd sale + 2 usd shipping charged = 7.95 after fees and all

    starting to see the picture? EGAY WANTS you to have free shipping so they can get their fingers on ALL your money!

    i don't think its secure for the seller to give free shipping. Nope it will create problems. You must not provide free shipping if you want to protect yourself from frauds and scams.

    I agree. If you are an International seller never offer a free shipping. It will cost you a lot and instead that you have gained you loose. Just a piece of advice, consider the price of your product and the amount that you can earn from this item. Or you can offer free shipping but add the shipping cost to the original price of your product.

    no free shipping to overseas, you should tick options in ebay, choose free shipping in your country only.

    I've sold on eBay. You win nothing with FREE INT shipping. If you're from the UK and you want to dispatch to the UK then it's worth it.

    fullrevenue: The periods go right after letters.

    If you do free shipping internationally (dont') then it might take a lot of time to figure out what to charge for shipping for each product.

    It is easy to sell your product on ebay if you know proper selling technique. Free shipping plays very important role in todays economy. Fee shipping is the technique used by seller to attract the buyer. Free shipping can be given in many ways like pay monthly membership to get free shipping or pay certain amount to get free shipping. You can also give customer free shipping if they provide feedback. All this can increase your sales and profit on ebay.

    Always offer free shipping worldwide. With that said, create country exclusions if you feel scammers are belong to that country. You can ship via by sea or cheapest option by air. I hradr with free shipping, you can garner 20% more sales
