I have bought my cam through e-bay, but that was when I was in US. Never done it in India (used Baazee, but not e-bay, but again baazee is part of e-bay . Alright, forget that! ) If you purchase from seller outside of India, custom duty surely applies. Shipping charges will be specified on the Item auction page. Make sure the seller is ready to ship it outside US. Best way to ensure that seller is reliable, is check his past history (it is available for each e-bay member). Choose one with minumum -ve remarks.

Ive bought on Ebay a lot, but always from america with an american debit card.

1. See this rating. Make sure he has sold a satisfactory number of items, and make sure his rating is in the very high 90%s, (i usually only buy from 98,99,100).
2. No clue
3. Ask the seller if he/she ships internationally.

More things to consider -
1. Make sure u have a way to pay (ie make sure ur indian/international credit card can work.) Personally i wld set up a free paypal account before bidding and see if that can work.
2. Read the description well. Notice that if the item is used they dont have to mention it, they will just not say that it is new. Also dont confuse "like new" for "new".
3. Feel free to contact the seller and ask the required questions before bidding.
