How Does it Work?

The eBay GSP makes things easier for UK sellers and takes away the complexities of not only exporting to the EU but also the VAT obligations that come with it. As eBay plainly explain it’s as easy as this;

  • You simply post your items to the UK Shipping Centre using your usual postal service.
  • Duty payment, customs clearance, tracking and everything else will be taken care of by us.
  • You don’t have to pay anything extra – just the cost of posting to the UK Shipping Centre.
  • Your seller performance standards are protected.

With GSP, all customs, duties and tax calculations required for selling and moving goods into the EU will be automatically taken care of. Your buyers will always see and pay the full postage, duties and taxes at checkout. There are no extra charges when the items arrive at your buyer’s European delivery address.

All you have to do is post your items using a domestic carrier to the GSP UK Shipping Centre – and eBay GSP will take care of the rest. You don’t have to worry about filling in any of the paperwork needed for cross-border delivery and you can treat your part in the process as an everyday UK to UK delivery.

  • You must be located in the UK and listing items on ebay.co.uk
  • When listing, select the “Sell internationally with the Global Shipping Programme” option in the International Postage section of the listing form.
  • The item must weigh no more than 30kg and be no larger than 125,000 cm³, and no longer than 120cm on the longest side. It should be worth no more than £2,000.
  • If the item is bought by someone in another country, you’ll get an address of a UK Shipping Centre to send the item to.
  • You’ll get a unique reference code so that, when it gets there, eBay know it’s yours and where it needs to go.
  • Make sure you either print the label provided or include that reference code if you use your own label
