MORE ITEMS FROM MORE SELLERS THAN EVER BEFORE

The Global Shipping Program expands your shopping horizons by thousands of items in hundreds of categories. This means you’re more likely to find exactly what you want—or discover that incredible, hard-to-find item you can’t find locally. And, with protections in place for both buyer and seller, shopping globally is just as easy and worry-free as shopping locally. So all you need to do is shop, check out, and wait for your item to arrive.

NO SURPRISES

When you view the item, you’ll see the item price plus estimated shipping and import charges. Once you purchase the item, the final charges appear at checkout. That means no surprise charges when your item arrives.

Step 1 - Check-in

FIRST STOP

Once the package is received at the Global Shipping Center it’s scanned to validate order status. Next, it’s given an inventory tracking label, then weighed and measured.

MORE ON BUYING GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM ITEMS

How many countries are in the program?

The Global Shipping Program currently ships to over 100 countries worldwide—and counting! To see if yours is included, view the list.

What are the accepted payment methods?

PayPal is the only payment method currently accepted for the Global Shipping Program.

Does global shipping make sense for inexpensive items?

The Global Shipping Program works best for items with an average sale price of over $50. There are times, with less expensive items, where sellers may feel that the Program fees are out of proportion to what the items sells for. However, the Program provides the same easy international shipping solution for any eligible item, regardless of the sale price.

Are parcels ever opened during processing?

Parcels are sometimes opened to verify contents. For instance, if a seller fails to include country of origin a package may be opened to ensure that the contents do not contain prohibited items. And then if everything checks out okay, the items are re-packed with care by the packaging experts at the Global Shipping Center.
