    I'm thinking about selling my iPhone, so I'm guessing international buyers would be popular. What do you guys use to ship packages internationally?

    As a buyer from Canada I can tell you what I always insist on that is the US Postal Service either the Priority or Express Mail International it has a reasonable brokerage fee to get the item through customs if you ever get charged it of $5 most times the packages will just arrive as if I bought the item in Canada and you don't even have to pay tax whereas UPS/Fedex basically all the courier companies you get hammered with at least a $40+ brokerage fee and are guaranteed to pay the taxes on that as well as your purchase price.

    With UPS/FEDEX, we'd have to pay taxes (VAT+import duty), no matter what, partly offsetting the €/$ exchange rate advantage. With USPS, I know that often, at least in Spain, it'll go through customs unnoticed. State this in your ad. Or if you send it thru UPS/FEDEX, you can declare a smaller amount ($100, for instance, would seem fair)
