    Selling Items in Puerto Rico. Thoughts?

    Hey all,
    hope you're having a wonderful weekend. For those established sellers on Ebay what are your thoughts on selling items in Puerto Rico. I've been doing some searching after getting burned on a sale down there and came to find that there have been multiple complaints of ebay scams in the area. Has anyone else been scammed down there? Is it worth selling items there? Thanks!

    There is a high rate of buyer fraud in that state / territory / country .
    My own personal experience has not been a good one when shipping down there

    I've got around 13 years and thousands of transactions on ebay including lots to Puerto Rico. Have had only good experiences myself, or at least no bad ones that I recall lol

    Puerto Rico is about 50/50 in my experience. Half legitimate buyers and half scammers. Hate to group a U.S. territory in the negative category, but it is one of those sad but true realities.
