Sweden is quite strict about importing plants, but they are also very communicative, in my experience.

I have both bought and sold on eBay in the last 8 years in the U.K., France (en francaise) and have bought from France, China, India, the U.K., Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Both eBay and PayPal are very careful to avoid errors and have measures in place to counteract and prosecute fraud. I've told Tomas tht the faujlt is probably largely his for not filing a claim before the time limit --and perhaps for not following procedures in place, not insuring his shipment, and possibly lack of understanding of what procedures were needed to bid. eBay warns against bidding if you do not understand the language you are bidding in, i.e., procedures. Other possibilities are that the package could have gone astray. Does Sweden have quarantine issues and procedures for entry of plants?
