A lot of sellers will ship abroad, and many will do so even if they don't explicitly say so. Just ask them.

Most will ship to outside of the US - just ask

In the US these are the frequencies:

GSM 850 and GSM 1900
UMTS 850, UMTS 1900, UMTS 1700

Next year with the 700Mhz spectrum on the auction block, we'll probably see more lol

Sure, ASK! Email is still free.

I do some selling on Ebay. I have sold and shipped to CANADA; actually, that was a SIM card. Most often I have had ?s from Africa or S America. I have never agreed to ship anywhere else. I RISKED it with CANADA and it turned out that the buyer received the card ok. NORMALLY, I INSIST on insurance and a delivery confirmation and that is always included in my higher than normal shipping.

The USPS is very particular. I could not get a delivery confirmation to CANADA on a regular airmail shipment. For an EXHORBITANT price increase (probably 5 times the value of a US SIM card on eBay), you can ship overseas priority or some other means. I just don't think it would be worth it for the buyer.

A SIM card is thin and weighs only a few grams. Just put it in a first-class airmail letter (tape it to a piece of card slightly smaller than the envelope to keep it from shifting around). This costs 84 cents to most destinations and takes 4-6 days. No need to mess with special delivery/registered mail/etc that costs more than the SIM is worth. http://ircalc.usps.gov/

Tell the buyer to understand and accept any delivery "risks" this involves; it's not like that many letters go missing (between industrialized countries, at least). Another way to guarantee delivery is to make the buy two SIMS and send them in separate envelopes from different places. That's $1.68 and one of them is bound to arrive.

With reasonable international shipping costs, you'll probably sell a lot more of them.

I bought my T-Mobile SIM from an American seller. No problems. It was simply mailed in a first class envelope as Motel75 suggested.

I don't use sellers that force me to use expensive shipping methods if it doesn't make sense for the product. If I am going to spend $15 to get a $10 item shipped, why wouldn't I be willing to pay a dollar and roll the dice on it arriving? It seems silly to pay more than a product cost to make sure I am going to get it when it would be cheaper to just buy another product.


CA: SaskTel, Wind postpaid; Rogers, Bell postpaid iPad flex plans; US: T-Mobile postpaid data, prepaid voice; PureTalk (AT&T MVNO) prepaid voice/data; AT&T prepaid iPad plan

Hardware: Too much but notably iPhone 5, iPad Mini Retina LTE, Moto G LTE (N.A. version), iPhone 4. All unlocked.

For SIM cards I agree. I only had ONE, an ECO-global, to sell out of the country.

I have sold other items like a laptop shell, Treo 600 among others that don't go for 84 cents. Since the value is usually higher than a SIM card, I want to insure the item AND have confirmation of delivery.

Aha, I thought you meant you'd sent lots of SIMs with special delivery. Seemed like a bit too much packaging...
