Want to start buying? If you are located in Australia , many buyers will be purchasing items from overseas, usually from the UK and the US. Having received everything that I have ordered from these countries over the last couple of years, I hope the following may help the beginner buyer. First up is to buy initially from those E-Bay sellers that have some established feedback with a high positive %.Check if the feedback is for buying or selling for further peace of mind.Check that the auction page states if they post outside their Country. If not, simply send them an e-mail and see if they will make an exception for your item. Nearly all of the sellers will and in many cases will detail the postage costs. Check the item description, ask for more details if it doesn't describe what you need to know. Establish a Paypal account as it makes life so much easier. Leave positive feedback for the seller when your item arrives. Don't leave negative feedback without contacting the seller first. Check the US Seller site bidmentor , one of the best & most helpful sellers on E-Bay. I hope this brief guide helps you to successfully buy books, bric-a-brac or bountiful bouquets.
