If your business is diverse, as mine is, then you have probably been selling a few little items on the online auction sites to make extra cash. This is great when the buyers are living close to your home but when they come from further afield then you need to get a good international couriers service. I prefer to find my buyers from the UK, but occasionally the winning bidder comes from Europe. The costs of parcel delivery to europe is about thirty per cent higher than to domestic addresses, and it is very important to get tracking information in case the consignment goes astray.

For us, the issues regarding parcel delivery to usa are much more involved. You have to get customs documentation and ensure that your buyer does not get stung for extra taxes. In cases like these, make sure you use a professional courier company otherwise you could spend hours sorting things out.
