    Hi All,

    I listed one iphone on eBay it got sold the buyer paid to my payapl. Now the problem is I don?t have ipone with me I need to buy from some where I need to drop ship. But payapl is not giving me the money until I need to provide the deliver transits number.

    2. Second problem is the buyer is not from US he is from South Africa. How I need to drop ship to him. If I ship to him also it will delivered to his home directly or it will in custom. If it was in customs how the buyer will know the shipped product is with custom. Any one have any experience like this shipping iphone out of US

    Recommend you don't ship to Africa as it's more than likely a scam from a 14 year old kid in an Internet Cafe using a stolen credit card.

    Suggest you give a full refund (before PayPal does it for you) and try and block such bids in the future...

    FUCK THAT!!!..

    Don't ever ship ANYTHING outside of the US, unless the buyer has an awesome feedback rating....

    I've refunded EVERY SINGLE international transaction.... never had one go through!!...

    Egay needs to step their game up .... that place is a bullshit playground.... IMHO

    It's best to to have the product, or at least know how to get the product, BEFORE you list it on ebay.

    Call me "Captain Obvious," but it might be a good idea for you to learn about drop shipping and to actually have a relationship with a drop shipper BEFORE you begin listing auctions on egay for things you don't have.

    edit: FFS George, you beat me to it! LOL

    Yes I do stuffing. But I also want to know if the stuffed action got sold how I can ship the product. If I use drop ship from china how they drop ship electronic product, will they go though the custom are it will reach directly to the buyer home. Any one having experience with dhgate drop ship

    Even us Aussies Boosey?

    I've shipped a heap of stuff to the US, UK and Eu from Oz, thousands of dollars worth in fact, and never had a problem.

    My feedback is over 1000 and 100%, never had a problem with PayPal or Nigerian scammer, I've sold laptops to France, Perfumes to USA, and Sega games to the UK.

    Judging by the bad press egay and PP get around here I'm definitely in the minority.

    How they drop ship to other than US. What details we need to provide to them. How we need to pay for the shipment. Are the prompt on deliver? How we can get the tracking number of the shipment. How many day it will take for them to provide the tracking number, which I need to provide to paypal to release the payment

    Contact the buyer and ask him to do a chargeback, then move on.

    No matter what the state of your paypal account I'm sure you can just refund the money. The customer shouldn't have to do anything.

    What's the purpose of selling a product you don't have? Wouldn't you lose money on egay fees?

    selling first and then drop shipping will not go well unless you have an established AND reliable supplier so your customer does not file a chargeback/complaint for shipping delays which are now in the hands of your supplier.

    iphone is a high risk item. this means if you are new to egay/gaypal, your funds will be put on hold until positive feedback is received.

    refund the money, don't do a chargeback.
