How can I protect myself when shipping an eBay item to Russia?
I have received payment for an iPhone that I was selling on eBay. I listed it as worldwide shipping available, so a person from Russia with no previous eBay purchases and joined the same day preformed "Buy It Now!"
I have heard many horror stories of someone disputing a PayPal charge or saying they never received their item, then PayPal puts a freeze on your account and has collection agents coming after you for the money.
eBay says "Eligible for eBay Seller Protection" but I still have my concerns.
I must also fill out a customs form, to which I need a description. I don't exactly know what to put to be descriptive enough without saying "iPhone" and having a postal worker, that wants an iPhone, to open it up and take it.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
