So, I had this Ducati front hub up for auction. My auction says..."only ships to the USA". So this guy from Spain bids on it....so I email the guy from Spain and tell him I only ship to the USA so retract your bid, don't bid anymore etc. So now he wins the auction and wants to know how much to ship it to Spain.
The guy was obviously using some kind of translator software to email me. Holy Jebus, what a pain. He'll probably leave me bad feedback because emailed him again and told him I'm not shipping it to Spain...freakin thing sold for $20, it would cost $60 to ship it to Spain.

I'll ship out of the US for more expensive items...but when the shipping it two or three times the cost of the item then it's too much potential for unhappy people.
Like the person that wins a $20 item and shipping is $60 so they decide they don't want it anymore.

Didn't know I could cancel bids...and yes I've saved all my communications.

I ship to and from Australia pretty often...never any problems. But when there is a language barrier too it can be a pain.

Of course some it is I'm just lazy and don't want to stand in my very rural P.O. for 30 minutes while Jughead tries to figure out how to send something to Spain.

Yeah...maybe I can get him to write up an email telling the guy he's an idiot in some colorful native language :)
