I need to list an item where the buyer can enter the shipping charge.

Please note: The following is not applicable for US Site.

For listing an item where the buyer can enter the shipping charge, please list an item with no shipping information. This will give a text box for the buyer during checkout where he/she can enter the shipping amount which can be part of the description.

The following sample lists an item with no shipping information in eBay Australia.
