Default Update to Feedback Removal Policy

I thought this will be a good post for people who sells internationally. I try to avoid this by marking all my packages as gifts and with low value between $5 to $10 to make buyers happy and to leave positive feedback.

From Ebay "- Dinesh Lathi

Hello everyone…We hope you enjoyed the holidays. My team and I are looking forward to kicking things off in 2009. I’d like to provide you with a few important selling-related updates and reminders you should be aware of as you prepare your listings for the new year.

Update to Feedback Removal Policy – Customs Fees
Many of our cross-border sellers have asked for help when they receive a negative/neutral Feedback rating because they wouldn’t mark an item as “gift” in order to sidestep customs fees. eBay will now remove Feedback if a) the listing meets the Customs Requirements below and b) the seller receives a negative or neutral Feedback comment which references customs delays or customs fees.

The following text, or very similar wording, must be included in the listing and be:

* In the format below
* In a font size no smaller than the majority of the other text in the item description
* Prominently displayed (in the upper half of the description, free-standing, etc.)

“International Buyers – Please Note:

* Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.
* Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.”

In addition, sellers may wish to include additional helpful statements for their buyers, such as:

* “These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.”
* “We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.” -"

Modee, I know what you are saying.

You mark the item as a Gift with no Value and put a Birthday card in it with no invoice. Customs will not question that. I have done this too but only when requested.

Have people ever gone to jail for lying and marking something as gift on a customs form? It is a felony to do that.

I really doubt that you will go to jail unless you are sending illegal stuff. You might get the package confiscated or something of that nature or customs will just hold the package and have the recipient pay for the customs fees. I have had this happened to me before when I mark the package as a gift with no value and Customs opened the package and they determined a value for the item and charged my buyer the extra taxes/custom fees. Some of my Canadian customers have PO Boxes set up in the states where they have it shipped there and then bring it back over the border. That's why I put a low value instead of No value to avoid customs from opening the package.
