No way compadre, are you sure? I haven't had to use one of those in years. All my labels fit on an 8.5 x 5.5 rectangle. Or is it certain countries?
Positive, my man. Things I have sent to the Philippines and Korea have needed them. You print 4 copies of the customs declaration/label. One for the post office, one for yourself, and two for the customs houses. All but yours go into that little envelope that you stick on your package.

eBay also has an option where you just send the item to an international processing center, and eBay handles it from there.

Desi, you're killing me man. Look up!!
Ha! Completely my fault. I stopped scrolling up when I saw the alligator chukkas.

Reading through your explanation of it makes a lot of sense! I'm selling an iPhone6 on eBay, and a guy from Italy told me it would cost just as much for shipping and import as it would to purchase the phone.

Jon, it looks like you're using eBay's Global Shipping program. I know it's super convenient but I think you're losing out on a lot of clients. It's been well documented on AAAC that there is a market segment of both English and non-English speaking Asian men that love trad. I know that most of my Alden or BB shoes in small sizes are sold to customers in Asian countries.

By changing your international shipping policy from eBay's Global Shipping program to one based on calculated weight and the mailing service, you'll reduce the cost to your buyers and open up your goods to a bunch of new customers. Some of these fellows can't effectively communicate with you that they shouldn't have to pay a ~$75 import charge (up front or likely at all) and those are the customers you're losing out on.
Being from Canada, I wholeheartedly agree with you D&LD. This global shipping option is both very expensive, a cash grab (eg because of North American Free Trade, I shouldn't have to pay duties on US made goods) and a pain in the neck. Pain in the neck in the sense that the package is not handled by the post office anymore and is dropped off in front of the house by a courrier company. I personally prefer my packages to be handled by the post office rather than dropped off unguarded on my front porch.
 
Stay clear of the Global Shipping program. They take forever to process items. You are still on the hook for negative feedback. If you are shipping something that is 4 lbs. or less, you have the option of shipping First Class International. I, personally, do this with 95% of my international sales. However, if something sells for over $100, I utilize Priority International. Many "developed" countries still do not have delivery confirmation. That is something to take into account. If you ship First Class International, you only need to sign and date a single label and affix it to your box/envelope. If you ship Priority International, you will have 4 labels (one for your records, and 3 to place in the adhesive window pocket. VERY IMPORTANT: If you use Priority, it is ALWAYS a good idea to have the address of the recipient somewhere else on the box as a precaution against any errors with the label envelope.

Any members selling a Barbour in the 44-46 range on eBay? I have an eBay coupon that is burning a hole in my pocket.

Edit: I was sending messages of offers to a few that were out of my price range, and someone accepted https://www.ebay.com/itm/262113632738 I got this one for $100.00 but I had an ebay coupon for $100.00, so it was free. I have never owned a Barbour, but for South Texas winters I think this should be perfect, did I do okay with this jacket, or is there something that I missed?

I think you did very well with this purchase. You bought a Barbour made in England (I believe many are made outside England today), and it appears to be in excellent condition. Bravo!
