    GSP Italy 16th Apr 19 at 8:10 AM
    This is just an observation but I wondered what other sellers are currently finding with buyers in Italy.

    I switched a lot of my items across to GSP and sell quite a few things that way but have noticed a trend for non payers from Italy on my auctions.

    I only use the 50 inclusive auction listings a month, and many of those are re lists so probably only sell 20-25 auctions each month of which currently about a third are GSP. Italy is probably my most common destination for sales under GSP. I have tried blocking Italy on GSP but some of them do pay a great deal of money for my items and many do pay- so haven't tried very hard to block Italy generally (although it is blocked from my directly shipped items)

    Just looking at my overall figures and notes from about the last 8 months I have lost one GSP item to Italy (obviously ebay covered that) but about 9 unpaid items , I currently have another Italian sale which is on day 2 and due to previous history I intend opening a NPB at the very first moment I can.

    EDIT: I've also had 2 claims for damage from Italian GSP buyers, both of which ebay covered for me.
