Ready to Ship? 

Now that you’ve sold your gear (congrats!) what is the next step? If you still have the original packaging, you can try to re-pack the gear as closely as possible to how it was packed when you received it. Be sure to pack gear tightly and use enough packing materials to keep your items safe and secure. Failure to pack your items properly and safely can result in damage during shipping.  As a Seller you can be held responsible if poor and/or insufficient packaging is used for shipping and determined to have caused any damage during the shipping process.

Shipping insurance is a service which may reimburse senders whose parcels are lost, stolen, and/or damaged in transit.  Shipping insurance is offered by postal services (USPS), courier companies (FedEx, UPS).  Be wise and consider adding insurance to your shipments.

Do sellers on Gear Focus ship internationally? 

Currently, Gear Focus currently open to the following countries; 

  • United States
  • Canada
  • UK
  • Australia
  • Switzerland
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • Japan
  • China
  • France

Sellers can choose to which countries they are willing to ship their listings. Simply add the countries individually with different shipping costs for each listing, or select "All of these" from the dropdown for a flat rate to all areas outside the continental Unites States.

Some sellers may be willing to ship internationally, but all importing fees will be the responsibility of the buyer. The seller may choose to increase the cost of shipping to cover those fees, or the buyer's UPS or FedEx shipping account may be used to bill the buyer directly. 

We recommend letting buyers know in the description of your listing if you are willing to ship internationally. And of course, add those countries in the product listing under shipping options. 

Can I use currencies other than USD when making a payment on Gear Focus? 

Gear Focus currently lists and sells in USD, but other currencies will be converted if used to make a purchase once we open to more countries outside the United States. Your credit card company or PayPal account will do this automatically for you, so make sure you understand the conversion rates from your currency to USD. 

How is shipping calculated?

To calculate shipping costs, you can visit FedEx, UPS, or USPS online and enter the weights and dimensions of your package. If you plan to ship internationally when available, check with your carrier about other fees and customs to calculate the most accurate cost.
