Here's the background story…
Sunday night I sold an item for 18.99 to a buyer in Thailand. She paid for it immediately and Monday morning she sent me this through eBay messaging.
"Hello! Please write on the package that it is a gift and specify the total cost of less than 10.00. In Thailand have a large tax fee! Thank you."
"I can not write gift on the package. I can get in trouble from the post office. I am very sorry."
She then countered with:
"Strange denial. I buy a lot on the internet and no one had any problems with my request. In the postal receipt is a special line – the 'gift.'"
"It is also against eBay rules. My business helps support my family of 9. I can not take a chance on losing it. Here is the info from eBay (Check it out HERE)"
She responded with this:
"I do not understand what the problem is to write gift on the package? I asked you write this when I paid. But you sent the item before then informed me that they can not fulfill my request. I not want to create problems for you, and I hope I will not have problems when I receive this item. In Thailand the limit on the import of goods is valued at $30."
"The problem is, it is against the law." The item was sent off and was not marked a gift. However, you paid 18.99 + shipping, and that was still under the Thailand $30.00 cap."
Oh My Goodness.. I think I'm going to just let this go…. but I didn't mark it as a gift.
