Hi, all my first post on the forum.
A customer has purchased a dropshipped item from me on ebay, however now when I check the item on my supplier page they are only selling it in store and not offering postage. How should I handle this?

Options I am considering:
1: Contact the buyer advise the product has sold out on another channel and no longer in stock (I'm a fairly new seller on ebay so want to avoid this)
2: Buy the item from another supplier who overseas, will break even on the sale but buyer will have to wait for international shipping
3: Post on airtasker for someone in the same city as the store to go buy it for me and post it (likely break even/small loss)

And finally, any forum members located in sydney want to help me out and buy/post the item for me? I will transfer you cost of item+postage+extra for your time
