Buying/shipping service

Okay I have a friend in the UK and he might start a buying shipping service for ebay. He will buy for you and handle the shipping for you. What do you guys think is a good fair price for this type of service.

Somebody posted a few weeks back about a service in the UK that is doing exactly this. It was crazy expensive IIRC. If it was a reasonable flat fee plus shipping I would be more inclined to use your friend than whatever the other place was charging.

Have they ever done that before? I'd prefer experience to being a guinea pig.

Customs declarations would then be his responsibility, so opening inspecting and repacking is the correct way to do it if he is the shipper overseas. Then if their is Ebay issues or item issues, (lost, wrong, or broken) between buyer-middle man-seller, it would lead me to believe its a bit more than just handing off a parcel. It's possibly why others providing this service charge a lot. You never truly know how many idiots are really out there sometimes until you list an item on Ebay.
