selling online overseas : cheap form of postage??

Postby mulcahen » Thu Sep 10, 2009 8:14 am

Hi. Anyone got any ideas or experience on how to sell things online from Peru to Europe( or wherever). Was thinking of selling some alpaca goods via an online catalogue but postage is so extortionate, costs almost as much as the product making it unsellable. Any ideas?thanks

I tried the same thing a few years ago and found the postage to be more than the item. If you advertise the price of your item including postage it will sometimes be even less that a person can buy it where they live.

DHL Has Bargain Boxes for exporters. I see them in some of the offices.

May be more than cheap, but they are better than taking your chances with SERPOST
