shipping thread...kind of mad

I have shipped many guitars, median price for conus being around 70$usd. I sold a JEM to a guy in Australia...I have shipped to Australia multiple times, and normally it's around 200$usd. I always ship from the same location, a ups store near my home.

Now, to ship this guitar, ( which is lighter than previous guitars I've shipped) they quote online at 430-450$. Online is usually higher, so I checked in store and they said 530-550$!

Any help here? They can't look up my history of transactions to check where I've shipped to apparently to verify what I've done in the past and how it compares.

Very frustrated right now.

Express Mail, process online thru Paypal, dimensions are too big to process at the PO.

Maybe I'm having a brain fart but I don't understand rich. It's an unassembled jem, with no hard shell case. I shipped a uv to Australia assembled in a case for >200$... I don't get it.

Re: shipping thread...kind of mad

It might have to do with the buyer living in some remote area?? I shipped a pedal to a guy in Colorado a few months back and it cost me like, 20 bucks to ship this tiny box. I asked the UPS guy why and he looked up the address and said the person who bought it lives far from a UPS depot and that is probably why.

Another time I shipped a cased and boxed PGM30 to NYC ( from Saint Paul MN) and it was around 25 bucks and I said " Wow, lower than I expected" The woman said, he probably lives in on a major street or something, close to the depot.

Re: shipping thread...kind of mad

No way UPS shipped a guitar to AU for $200.

Did he pay with Paypal? Then you already have a "Print shipping Label" on your account page.

He couldn't afford to send all money at once so I didn't do an invoice like normal. I trust him and I can obviously be trusted so it's not a big deal...

And yes, there is a way. Because that's what I did

Re: shipping thread...kind of mad

On your Account page under the Order status/Action column, you don't see the Print shipping label button?
If not, go to the bottom of the transaction page and there will be a shipping link there Under "Shipping"

Re: shipping thread...kind of mad

You were either paid thru Paypal or you wern't, has nothing to do with ebay. And even if you weren't you can still use Paypal shipping to ship it.
