    I've decided to opt back into the GSP to see how it goes as I'm getting an awful lot of Russian and Italian buyers asking about my goods as I have those two countries blocked. I'll see how it goes and decide whether to stick with GSP or disable it again.

    I do wonder though how much loss eBay has had to cover for items sent to problem countries.

    can you have GSP switched on for certain countries only? I.e. normal postage for Europe/USA etc, but GSP for everyone else?

    Thr only problem i have had so far with the GSP. Is from America. The first one thought the free UK shipping was for all I cancelled the order. And the second one again was America. They bought.paid. And 25 hours later said they wanted to cancel the order as they didn't realise how much extra the postage and import tax was. Good job it was Easter weekend otherwise I would have already posted it.

    For me it's good as I sell at least 10-20% of my sales that way. Nearly all to Europe .I don't know what type of stuff you sell. But you can pm me if you want to know what I have sold through the GSP
