additional fee after the special is over unless you un-click that option before

* US Shipping - Pick the services you wish to offer. People do love free shipping
and you can always add the shipping to the price of the item.

time to get down to the post office. Ebay prefers that you offer 1 business day
Handling time and a "Get it Fast" service. By doing such you may qualify for
special rebates on the Ebay fees and it does help with search placement bringing
you closer to the top of the list.

Ebay sometimes offers a global service that you can sign up for where the item
ships to a processing center in Kentucky and then it is Ebay's responsibility
after that. It does cost the buyer about twice as much in shipping but it is
quicker, more reliable and the buyer may be saved from paying a duty tax.
Package Details - Pick the type of package and enter the weight. Dimensions
* Add other details, if applicable.
Buyer Requirements - I just stick with Ebay rules.
Sales Tax - Example ~ If you sell to someone in Arizona, you should have an Arizona
Business Sales Tax license, collect and pay the appropriate tax.
