I like posting for domestic..but i found that if you do list internationally it tends to go for higher in the value of the item.

Yes, beautiful ball park if you can ship worldwide but be upfront with the actual shipping costs. That way, you don't accidentally shoot yourself in the foot.

I've taken some hits from shipping in the past. Bit more of a nuisance but why not, if buyer is reliable.

It depends on the item and what your own business plan is. To sell internationally you have to look at many factors. One of the important factors,imho. is your profit May not be worthwhile to ship to the likes of France if costs are high. Equally it may not be worth to ship to USA or UK because of the cost to you of items easily available in those countries & cheaper for other sellers.

green is much experience for this,If your item come with competitive price ,including shipping cost ,and then it will be worthy to ship international.On the other hand,if your price is not competitive with shipping cost,and then it is not easy to do it like this way for single item shipping international.

Like most have said, the question at the end of the day, is the profit worth doing it. You just have to make sure that you're not going to pay for part of the postage like what I did when I first started. Can you imagine posting something that is less than 500g to UK for AUD$34? Seriously, I wouldn't do that again because the postage cost was eating up my profit.

that is why our customers always buy the goods from me in bulk,just save the shipping cost and make more profit.

international shipping has its pros and cons..do your research on whether or not international or domestic shipping is best for your item..

there is a market,there is a way .If you can sell 50 pcs -100 pcs each day,i think you still can make a lot of profit.
