I am currently selling an item on ebay and to my amazement I have had people from Australia and USA asking me for P&P costs.

Now I have never sent a parcel abroad before and have been looking into various methods of sending the parcel.

So far the cheapest quote I have (including insurance of £200) from DHL is almost £50 to send outside the EU.

This seems excessive - am I doing something wrong? Can anyone advise how I can get the cost down?

The item is a doll which I will pack in a box measuring 30cm x 20com x 12cm and the parcel will weigh approx 600g.

The item on ebay is 180450278484

I hope someone can offer advice as I don't want to put off potential buyers with extortionate shipping costs
