american sellers....beware!! if you opt to sell internationally and there is a problem, guess what?? you do not have US ebay at your back helping you. i decided to give international buyers a shot after ebay's lobbying efforts about upping sales. i sold an item to a german man may 11. mailed the item may 12. june 15th he asks if it was sent. i provided the pertinent information. today i got an "item not received". ok. i can handle that. but wait!!!! i have to go to ebay germany!! everything is in german!! i called ebay for help. the customer service guy, jason, said i should have kown that. huh?? i'm to go and use a google translator. am i dense for imagining that if there was a issue it would be done in english, here i the states? according to him i was.
my point is, to him and to ebay, if you want american sellers to sell internationaly, there should be a disclaimer about the consequences; that the US ebay would not be available. i'm making time to alert other ebayers. hope this helps.
