UK

My understanding is they will purchase ebay UK items and forward them on to US.

I can only assume this is beneficial because the seller won't ship to the USA? I'd be curious to see the fees they charge?

Well the service says 12pounds plus shipping for one item. Or a yearly membership.

Yes for items that will not ship to USA.

I've found buying 25+ uk eBay orders last month that asking another seller to collect a package and combine ship to you usually is well received for a few pounds. 12 seems like a lot to drop ship. Also from my perspective as a big volume seller on eBay/amazon that working with these companies suck. I get one out of Doral Florida daily and 99% of the time the customer complains to me of slow ship time, damaged product or best that they didn't get it of which all have nothing to do with me...end of rant

If it works and its affordable try it!

Well I do not buy 25 items a month. And do not have anyone else to forward on things. Have done it in the past. But want a reliable service instead.
I agree 12 L seems high. But if the shipping rates are reasonable and the service is good, some items might be worth the cost.

Briggs did you sleep over at the toke house again? I know you northern CA folks take your ginger jane seriously but no need to rain on everyones parade this morning.

I ship orders to freight forwarders in the US 3-5 times a week and less than 1% of those shipments have issues.

Well do you have a freight forwarder in UK you have experience bringing items from ebay to USA with? That works with individuals on single items.

That is the purpose of this post about Skypax. Am wondering about anyone here from D90source's experience with that. Trying to make shopping on ebay UK more accessible to us here in the Colonies.

I can't remember what country the Doral Florida forwarder ships to but it's Middle East somewhere and I'm sure the long journey plays into my experience.
