The fees are pretty ridiculous actually.
I'm assuming OP has a Paypal account.
While it's more risky to do, you'll probably sell it for more if you offer to ship Worldwide. I've yet to have an issue with the many countries I have shipped to, but it could happen. Almost every time I ship worldwide, the item ends at a higher value than if I didn't, even if the winner of the auction didn't live outside the country.
Sometimes Buy it Now is a better idea than auction style listings. Like if you know your item is worth a good amount of money, and there is high demand for it, it would be worth trying Buy it now. Plus, you can get something like 8% Bing cashback from purchasing a buy it now item, some Ebayers might know that and look for the Buy it Now listings.
