I know this is a strange question, but am I responsible for packing and shipping the item, or will the buyer pay for that?

I'm not sure; does our website specify who pays for shipping? In a normal auction situation, the seller is responsible for the cost and risk etc of getting the item to the auction house; the buyer assumes those costs once they purchase something.

I've emailed our client support for confirmation and will let you know as soon as I hear back.
