Before proceeding, please note: Currently, JoeLister ships Global Shipping Program orders to eBay's warehouse with Amazon's "Standard" option. We do this because most customers prefer not to lose money by shipping Expedited on GSP orders, since sellers do not receive any of the funds that buyers pay eBay for GSP orders. Buyers cannot indicate whether the international shipping they select is Expedited or Standard. eBay only gives them one shipping option with an estimated delivery window which spans about week in the future. Since users can't indicate their preference, there isn't a way for JoeLister to know when to ship GSP orders Standard vs. Expedited, and that's why we err on the safe side and choose Standard. Most users do not want to pay extra for Expedited for the first leg of the journey, as the international shipping is slow and has a large delivery estimation anyhow.
