Delivery from ebay USA
Of course, when working with any of the branches of eBay auction raises issues related to the delivery of goods purchased. I must say that, despite the apparent complexity, of course, all these issues are easily solved. Goods are usually sent by mail but sometimes pointed out that it is possible to pick up a purchase. Typically, each of the Seller have one or more proven delivery methods that he uses. If you do not agree with the method of delivery that provides a seller, you can then offer their own, but not the fact that it will be adopted.
This product can be sent to the Buyer as ordinary mail (characterized by low price, but rather a long delivery period), and express delivery services (characterized by accelerated delivery and high residual cost). Each type of delivery has both advantages and disadvantages, but then you have to decide and to choose priorities: what is more important the speed of delivery or price.
If you are satisfied with the proposed method of delivery by the Seller, then pay for the purchased goods and its delivery is possible immediately after the transaction. If the cost of shipping to your country, the Seller is not specified, you prefer other shipping method, or you purchased a few items that can be packed into a single package, after the transaction is necessary to write to the Seller about their preferences and ask him to send – invoice, account for payment.
When you send the purchased goods to the Buyer, the Seller receives a so-called tracking number – a special identification number that is assigned to mail and using which the site operator delivery can trace its course, unless used delivery method provides for online – tracking. After receiving this number Seller sends to the Buyer, as proof that the goods are shipped (and the Seller have the opportunity to enter this number directly on the eBay site). If the Seller does not send you a tracking number, it is washed to write to him and ask for the number.
The seller may send to you goods purchased via the public postal service, for example: USPS, Deutsche Post, Royal Mail, or using courier services, such as: FedEx, TNT, DHL, UPS. The first option is more democratic and costs, the second is usually more reliable and has a higher speed and price. The size of the duty-free limit or customs duties does not depend on which operator is engaged in the delivery of postal items.
If the Seller is obviously overstates the cost of delivery, and it is possible to calculate the approximate price is always alone, because almost all the leading operators offer on their websites so-called “Online calculator” that you, according to eBay rules have the right not to pay for the goods and make a complaint, you can do so using the form. But do not forget that the seller has the right to include in the total cost of delivery of the package price, and even the cost of travel to the post office, plus the value of the final amount of influence in any particular region of a country home to Seller. Therefore, working with online calculators, remember that they give only approximate cost.
