Address is confirmed, paid full price buy it now with Paypal confirmed, but is obviously foreign and using a drop shipper in Beaverton, OR. In 15+ years Iíve never seen this buying or selling. The only red flag is the seller is non-US verified. Should I be concerned? Everything else seems OK...

I had the same thing happen last summer with a set of vintage Wilson staff irons, continental US shipping address but account registered in Czech Republic.  Apparently as a new seller with good feedback eBay defaulted my listing as eligible (read auto-enrolled) for their international shipper program.  Be prepared for PayPal to nick you for an additional 1.5%.

Since you've got PayPal protection you should be fine. Maybe put signature confirmation just in case your extra worried the person may claim the item never arrived, etc?

I've done this before - I was living in New Zealand, and there was a service in Oregon that forwarded parcels from the USA to New Zealand, it was actually run by the federal postal service here. Much more reliable and usually more cost effective as they had economies of scale.

My address was a 7 digit number and then my name.

As above - if money has come through paypay I wouldn't be worried. Perhaps ask if you are, maybe they will tell you?

^^ Exactly this. There are companies that can arrange shipment for overseas buyers who either can't get certain items there or have sellers that won't ship international. It's not really that different from what ebay does with their Global Shipping Program, but their fees probably aren't as bad.

I misspoke in my OP. I am the seller, the buyer is foreign but I got the jist. Iíll definitely get signature confirmation to cover my butt. Thanks for the responses!
