If you live in the GTA area, then that is great. that BST section is >95% GTA based as far as I remember.
Would have been nice to have subsections under the BST section, one for each major Canadian city at least.. Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Manitoba, St John's, Halifax, etc..

You can sell gift cards to out of province people if you and the buyer have good trading history on RFD.

Pretty much, sold many to out of province. Helps having good BST feedback here :)

My latest sales were a SIM worth $150 and Westjet credit worth $100. Buyer EMT-ed me the money and I emailed/transfered to him, everything went 100% smooth. Communication is key

I'll try to take advantage of Canada Post free ship promo and sell some extra items I normally wouldn't since the shipping would kill the deal

True.. I totally jumped the gun, and overlooked the GC aspect of it. I guess It's time to get some ZZzzzzz... :)

Ah okay. That's too bad, as with the exchange rate, US buyers can get some pretty good deals.

You should include a notice that duties, taxes and any brokerage fees imposed are not your responsibility, and payable by the buyer,, and that you will declare the full value of the sale. I think up to USD$800, americans usually don't pay anything. But for more than that, I am pretty sure they will get a bill. UPS and Fedex will not miss the opportunity to charge their brokerage fees :)



In the past, with multiples of the same product, I have just made multiple listings of the same item. So instead of posting qty more than 1, I have just posted qty 1, and then just click on "sell similar" again and post another identical item. Not the most elegant way to do it, but it works. And you can even add a note that if someone want more than 1, they can just contact you before ordering. What I have done at that point, is modify an existing listing to be for a "Bundle" of items (ie: a pair of something, instead of single). That way you can offer a combined shipping cost, and then not lose the other listing :) I've even converted existing listing to something completely different after I sold all I had in a single bundled listing :) ebay didn't seem to flag anything, and I eventually sold my other item also.

So just get your items posted by end of day. And you can modify them afterwards if needed.
Thanks again!

I realize the deal is now over, but the best options for small shipping boxes are:
  • Walmart (they have 97c small boxes, then a slightly bigger size for around $2.
  • Staples has boxes, and they're sometimes on-sale, but without a coupon, I rarely buy them there.
  • Stores like Dollarama do not carry boxes, only bubble envelopes.
  • If anyone reading is out West, London Drugs has boxes similar to WM sizes, and they sometimes go on-sale.

I just re-use the amazon boxes that I get from the amazon orders I do. And their bubble wrap. But I dont ship much.

My item I listed with this promo just sold. I was charged the $1 twice. Is this expected?

Final Value Fee on Shipping: $1.13 (my shipping fee was only $2, so this really cuts into that)
Final Value fee PROMO: $1.13

It's the first thing I've sold on ebay in awhile - have they really jacked up their fees on shipping? Or is this promo actually detrimental for low $$ shipping fees.

Should have made shipping free/included in price
