I notice a lot of sellers have some reluctancies to sell internationally. I've bought 4 or 5 guitars from overseas sellers and have only ever had one minor issue and that was because the seller (without my permission or knowledge) undervalued the goods on the custom's form and I had to go and prove the value to customs. Its really easy to sell internationally. Here's what you do: 1. Say to the purchaser that the conditions on which you sell internationally are: (a) the price negotiated is exclusive of shipping - all shipping, insurance and other costs are the responsibility of the buyer; (b) the buyer can specify the method or shipping and way its shipped (see below) but that you can factor in your costs of doing it that way into the price; (c) there are no refunds but you will provide any info and photos they want. You are taking a punt if you buy internationally and most buyers know this; and (d) it must be declared and insured at the full value. 2. If its a bolt-on ship it in two separate packages as a neck and body. Each package is assessed separately for customs and shipping is a lot cheaper. Its also a lot safer and less likely to damage. 3. When negotiating the price remember that there will be added costs (if only minor) on your part so have an idea as to what this is worth to you in extra dollars. 4. If you specify (shipped to lower 48) in the ad, remember that the buyer will expect the cost of shipping in the US deducted from the price negotiated (yes we know its $25-35); 5. Don't ship with a case unless the buyer really wants it. The added shipping weight of a case will generally increase the price of shipping more than the value of a case in the persons home country. 6. If you don't trust the buyer or something doesnt seem right, don't go through with the transaction. I have had many pleasnt and happy international deals with zero problems for the seller once the items were shipped. There is no reason why this should be hard or avoided. Selling items interally or internationally is about good faith and trust. That is all. Please don't be scared of international buyers. We don't bite!
