    I posted very clearly that I only accept bids from the USA on my items. I also checked the box where only USA bidders could bid.

    Lo and behold, I had someone from Belgium win a product for $15...and I'll have to charge $40 just to be able to ship it to her. Geez.

    U.S.A. - Free Shipping
    Canada - $4.99 (or some other price?)

    Hm, that's weird. Is it a glitch on Ebay's end? I mean, if you stated you only wanted bids from US members, how could people from other countries bid? Doesn't make sense. Stupid eBay lol

    I had the same thing happen to me. I guess if the person signs up for an eBay us account they can be from anywhere. Checking the box for only us bidders just stops your listing being shown on other eBay websites.

    I had the same thing happen to me a while back, which is one of the many reasons I stopped messing around with eBay. There's not much you can do besides bill them, back out, or contact eBay. Either way you should still contact eBay and let them know this loop is still open and hope they finally patch it.

    Haha, yes. That picture is mine.

    I'm pretty much done with eBay anyways. Just one more irritant on top of many.

    Ya know, you're not the first one to tell me that. I believe it was Mae West. I don't see it, but thanks!
