One solution to this problem is the mail forwarding servicea service that charges you a small fee in exchange for receiving your eBay purchase inside the U.S., then shipping it to your non-U.S. address. This seems like an ideal solution, and for some it is, but there are also some potential complications to be aware of before you decide to use one.
When will my purchase arrive?
Hey, what happened to my parcel?
Am I being overcharged for shipping?
