Due to some unforeseen expenses, it looks like I may need to liquidate some of my larger collections (dolls, toys, etc). Theoretically I'd like to sell them en masse (i.e. 20 dolls total in one lot) rather than individually. These aren't small or sturdy items. Is there a standard practice for shipping that many semi-fragile items (all bubble wrapped) at once to a buyer? Can you do multiple shipments through eBay, like how Amazon sometimes splits orders up? Any advice would be appreciated.

Wifey and I sell on Etsy, and we're getting into small pieces of furniture -- but they're not "small" by UPS and USPS standards; the post office won't even take them for being too big, and UPS wants $200+ based on size. Do any of you know how best to ship a piece of furniture, delivered to a person's front door? [more inside]

I just sold my laptop on eBay... my first eBay sale. The buyer was in Poland. I've never shipped anything internationally. Looks like I can ship the package for about $40. It also looks like this sale might require someone to pay a Value Added Tax or import tax of some kind. What do I need to know about how this works? Do I pay or does he? Anything I should consider in the course of this sale?

Is there an easy way to pull out the shipping information from eBay? It seems that that's the way a lot of people buffer their low prices... Their shipping costs $10 for shipping that really costs $3.65 at the Post Office.
Many American eBayers won't ship outside of the USA. I find this extremely silly and annoying but I guess that's besides the point. My question is: is there a service I can utilize that will allow me to buy items and give an American address and then someone at that address will then forward the package to me in Canada?
