Is tracking on B&S common procedure? - Page 2

post #16 of 64
Tracking provides peace of mind in this uncertain world.
post #17 of 64
I ship everything with tracking, regardless of where it is going. It's the sellers responsibility to get the item to a buyer, unless the buyer specifically states they want non tracked shipping and are willing to bear the risk of a loss - even then I'd only ship this way if the item was low value and I was paid via the 'gift' option on PP.

I always provide tracking. It's free online (for USPS) and inexpensive in person. It gives you a proof of shipment and can ease both your mind and that of the person your sending to. It's also nice to know when to expect the package. That said, I wish more people felt obligated to provide tracking info as many do not. It's weird though because sometimes they will buy tracking as there is clearly a code on the box but will neglect to give it to me for some reason.

I live in Canada where adding tracking usually adds like $15 to the price.

EXACTLY

i bought something from canada on the B&S

paid and the seller said he shipped

i asked for tracking and he said there was none, i can't believe it...its coming from canada and you need tracking to protect the seller + buyer

i live in an apartment complex if its not tracked then it doesn't get to my door it gets dropped off in a common area

As the buyer, if you didn't agree to it and it was never mentioned, there is absolutely no reason to expect delivery confirmation. Why would you think otherwise?

On the other hand, what do you care? It is the seller's responsibility to ensure delivery. If you never receive the item, you can get a refund even if there was no insurance and no tracking.

Unless you send him direct payment (which would be stupid).


As a seller, I use tracking but not for the buyer's benefit. It's to protect me against crackhead buyers like you.

Stillmatic beats...

Perhaps you should mention in the thread that you bought a brand new tanner goods belt (worth 88 dollars) from canada, paying only 57 dollars. Do you really need to make an entire thread on streetwear and denim to bitch about this??? Shipping from Canada internationally with tracking costs like 30 bucks, If I paid 30 dollars for the shipping with tracking options, I woulda been making 27 dollars out of an original 88 back, for what is essentially a brand new belt...

If you asked for tracking I would have purchased it...however it certainly wouldnt have been 57 dollars...

If it's cheaper for them to send it without tracking, I'd rather not pay the extra money.

Living in Toronto, Canada as well can kill the shipping. As someone else mentioned it does add $15 extra and up.

As long as I get my item in 2-3 weeks I'm fine.

hey man i wasn't trying to upset you...i understand now it costs a lot to ship it /w trackin from canada. whenever i ebay/sell anything domestic its so cheap and necessary when you're the seller i didn't think of it. i was just curious b/c anytime i've bought from here i always track it to protect myself and the buyer.

Going off this thread, what is everyone's thoughts about insurance. I do it for sure it it's over $300 but it's so cheap to do it on stuff that's like $150 as well
post #29 of 64
^I do use delivery confirmation but I hardly use insurance unless the buyer asks because I've only lost one package in about a decade of online buying and selling. Though I recently sold a compact camera to someone in spain, less than $250 total, and it was returned to sender because of an incorrect address and has been in limbo for like two months frown.gif Paypal charged me for it and I'm still working on disputing it. I lost the camera and $250 so I really wish I paid the $5 for insurance then frown.gif

Ship from US to other countries, at least I know Priority Mail envelop does not have option to track.
IF you print the label via paypal. it will give you a number, but it will just say your local postal office receive the envelop.
