    Default Using eBay GSP to ship baritone to Australia from US

    I was wondering if anyone has used ebays Global Shipping Program to ship a baritone Sax from the US to Australia?
    I have had a couple of baritones shipped to Australia, once from a SOTW seller through Re-Ship and another time from Quintheeskimo who used UPS.
    I found the Re-Ship charges pretty steep but it was packed in a huge box with tons of packing and arrived safely.
    The charges through UPS were not as steep but I suspect Quinn pays at a discounted rate compared to what others might.
    Just wondering if using the Global Shipping Program would make shipping costs more affordable or the opposite.
    Love to hear from anyone with experience using GSP in such a case.

    Well to answer my own question, I have just recently bought a baritone Sax on eBay from a seller I the US.
    He used the Global shipping program to send it to me here in Australia.
    It was by far the cheapest shipping rate I have ever paid for a baritone coming from the US.
    The horn was packed quite well and in a decent sized box with peanuts etc.
    USPS was used within the US then the international shipping was through fedex.
    Cost of shipping for me was $150 US.
    This baffles me as I once had a mouthpiece shipped by an eBay seller using the same method and it cost $60 US and took over a month to arrive.
