Howdy from Texas,

When listing your Ebay item for auction on this forum, or when making a Buy It Now listing,
please choose the appropriate thread prefix from the drop-down menu to the left of the title
field of your post to indicate what you're doing and where you are.

For example: FA-AU/NZ: Fujinon s20x6.4BRM -38 lens -- means: For Auction in Australia or New Zealand.


FA -- means you're listing something For Auction -- going to the highest Ebay bidder.

BIN -- means you're looking for a specific set price, known as Buy It Now

Your thread needs to be either an FA or a BIN -- because if your thread isn't listing
something For Auction or Buy It Now on Ebay, then you're in the wrong forum and
your post belongs elsewhere.


CONUS: Continental United States only. If doing business
beyond the Lower 48 but within the hemisphere, please choose
NA/SA. If doing business internationally, please choose INTL. For
all 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii, choose US+AKHI.

US+AKHI: All 50 U.S. states, including territories.

UK/EU: United Kingdom and / or European Union, from the British Isles to Eastern Europe.

AU/NZ: Australia and / or New Zealand, and possibly Oceania (see AS/RU below).

CAN: Canada only; otherwise please choose NA/SA.

AS/RU: Asia and / or Russia, including Korea, Japan, China, Indonesia and India.
Folks living within the spectrum of Oceania should consider either this category or AU/NZ.

NA/SA: North and / or South America. Not only for Mexico and Central and South American
countries, but also for U.S. and Canadian folks willing to ship cross-border or cross-continent.

AF/ME: Africa and / or the Middle East. Yes, technically the Middle East is
part of Asia, but it's partnered here with Africa due to geographic proximity.

INTL: International, meaning you're willing to ship internationally, or you're in an area not
covered by the codes above, such as Hawaii, Antarctica, the International Space Station, etc.


By all means, please include a more specific location in the text of your post identifying the actual
country, state, city/state or city in which you're wanting to do business as this will greatly facilitate
the process for you. Thanks in advance,
