I've only used eBay twice, and I'm a bit worried about something that's going on with my third order. I bought a camera part from a German seller (with 100% 2500+ Feedback) almost two weeks ago. I hadn't heard anything from them by Sunday so I sent a message asking what was happening and if the item had been shipped because I hadn't received it. They messaged me back saying the item had been shipped the day after I paid but that the post office had sent it to America rather than to Ireland. They've provided me with a tracking code for within the German system that shows a package being handed off to America on the date they said they posted it. They told me that the German post office says it's now on its way to Ireland, but it may take some time. I'm unsure of what to do here. Is this a scam? He could have posted something cheap to America to get the tracking number. How long do I wait to see if it arrives? If he is being genuine then my big worry is that I get hit for customs/import duty now that the package is coming via America. In that scenario what do I do? Do I refuse the charge I'll get from my postman to pay the duty? Will that show up as a package refused to eBay/Paypal and I won't get a refund. Like I said, I haven't used eBay much so this is all new to me. And for what it's worth the item was a good deal, not too good to be true good, but definitely a reasonable price for an eBay seller without a brick and mortar store.
