Saturday the 9th of December was officially the last date that you could post to Australia via Royal Mail. We noted the last posting dates back in October and Royal Mail have them available on their website.
With that in mind one eBay seller was a bit alarmed to discover that their items are still on offer with shipping to Australia promising that they’ll arrive in time for Christmas!
If you offer shipping to Australia (or elsewhere around the world), keep a watchful eye on your orders and if in doubt it may be worth sending a message to the buyer pointing out that whilst eBay might be hopeful that the purchase will arrive in time for Christmas, Royal Mail aren’t quite so optimistic.
Of course there is still a chance that items will be delivered on time, but unless you’re willing to pay for expedited courier services it’s likely that it’s too late to ship via the post to Australia for Christmas 2017.
