    Default Should I post to El Salvador

    I sold a mobile on eBay. I don't sell much on eBay so I wasn't entirely comfortable what I was doing and I messed up and left it open to international buyers. I realised my mistake yesterday but couldn't cancel as it was within 12hrs of the auction ending. I really only wanted to sell to UK buyers.

    Someone from El Salvador bought the phone. It's been paid by PayPal and I'm happy to send by international signed for which costs about a tenner. I'm aware of scammers paying for the phone and chargebacks later after sellers posting the item.

    I just wanted to know the risks of sending it to El Salvador and whether I should? I know I can cancel the sale and refund the money but I don't really want to do that. It may harm my 100% feedback and I've no reason to suspect the seller isn't genuine at this point.
    I understand and accept that some people hold opinions that are different to my own. Living in a free and democratic society, I fully embrace and respect their right to be wrong.

    If you use ebays international shipping program, you send to UK with tracking and they do the rest you only pay the UK side of shipping, the buyer will have seen the charges for international shipping and this will have been paid at checkout.

    This was mine today sent to USA.
    Purpose of use (reference number)
    A3476052385US
    GSP, Unit 3 Dove CL, Fradley Pk

    LICHFIELD Staffordshire WS13 8UR
    GB

    was £4 recorded delivery to ebays shipping dept, would have been least 3 times that if i had gone via royal snail.

    What is your buyers feedback like? A new user or plenty of good reviews? That's really the only thing you can go by.

    I ended up sending it via RM. £14 postage.

    Next time I'll pay more attention when I'm on Ebay.

    It's signed for anyway so I'll get £50 back if there's a problem.

    Wow! Do you speak to people like that in the real world?

    Maybe attitudes like yours is why there are very few members on this forum now!

    Another who sits behind his PC throwing insults. I bet you even post on Christmas day you fucking bellend!

    LOL don’t take it to heart I’ve been called worse, thrown my 10p back and got a 5 year ban.

    Take it with a pinch of salt but my own opinion would of been no cos I only sell to the U.K. and yes I have done the same as you forgot to specify sent to areas but we all learn.

    Regards.

    That`s something the OP hasn't indicated, and I would like to know as I wouldn't on any situation send it there, worse still if they are newbs. But he has made a mistake and decided to post it asking members what they think and they all agree that's its not the right thing to do. some more vocal than others.

    On another note no name calling on both parties please, he has realised he has made a mistake, lets hope it goes ok.

    I don’t think it was intended to be offensive just a bit of banter but everyone has gone a bit pc nowadays.

    Odd statement, seems to be no context.
