If you require an item to be sent to you via courier there may be additional costs for shipping.

Some sellers might indicate that shipping is included in their listed price, but this would need to be discussed as part of your negotiations.

Recommendations:

  • Buyers should chat with Sellers to confirm they are willing to ship.

  • Negotiate and offer an amount for the item which includes shipping costs.

  • Use a trackable courier option. This is essential in the event of a dispute around delivery.

Who pays for the upfront shipping costs?
This is up to the parties to decide, but we suggest that the Seller covers the up-front cost of shipping. This ensures that the Buyer has protection in the event of non-delivery and the Seller can recover these costs with the payout once the deal is complete.

What about return shipping costs?
In the event that there is an issue with the item you receive, return shipping may be required. Unless otherwise agreed, the Buyer would be responsible for any return shipping costs.
