I presume you're looking at a used dSLR. dSLRs have a lot of moving parts, all of which are subject to wear, and you can't tell how much use and abuse a camera has received, so buying a used dSLR is always a big gamble.

This is a better camera:

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens - Refurbished

The kit lens that came with the T2i is unstabilized while the newer models come with a stabilized version that is also much better optically. I'd get the refurbished T3 before a used T2i. And with the $60 you save, you can buy a spare battery.

Adorama, like B&H will ship worldwide. Dunno about shipping costs. I would call them first.
