I am in the UK and have used this service twice and unfortunately never again. The 1st time was ok, had to pay import charges up front. The 2nd time, I bought an MOC for $70, then paid over $30 for postage and then paid over $30 for import fees. I was still ok with this till when I received it about 2 weeks later and found that eBay have opened the package to check contents and stuffed it all back in the box and reseal it. Luckily for me the item was not high priced and it arrived safely (they use a cheap local courier service and my parcel was just dropped at the door in plain sight without even a card to say it's been delivered). I have heard stories that ebay have virtually folded a carded figure back into the box and reseal it. I am sure some sellers here also deals on ebay. Do you sign up this Global Shipping Programme? I have promised myself never to use it again.
