I have had a couple of friends in the US wanting to send me some trading cards but the international shipping was going to be more than the cards value so I said ship them to YouShop and I'll pay for the international shipping on them.


They have both arrived at YouShop and now YouShop wants the invoices for them, but there is none. I kept getting automated replied to my emails saying to please attach the invoice etc.




Can we still use YouShop for this type of non-merchant shipping? Anyone else done this and been able to continue processing their items?

It's quite easy to produce an invoice using templates online.  I recently had to ship something which I'd bought ages ago on trademe to a relative overseas, and the shipping agent insisted on an invoice showing value.  So, I produced one, with me selling the item to my relative for a low but realistic value, signed "paid with thanks".  I suggest your friend could easily sell you these items for a couple of bucks

When I saw the title I thought it was going to be a more "adult" personal item being imported... Lol..


Youshop have become even more useless now with the GST thing. I am still using shipito since I had to pay for another year but once that is up I will be shopping for another reshipper. at least shipito don't request invoices and other BS, just let me fill out a declaration which is all they have to do. Then charge the GST on what I say rather than want other documentation that doesnt prove anything.
