I lost the camera and $250 so I really wish I paid the $5 for insurance then frown.gif

I think Paypal policy is if item over 250 USD, you should buy paypal.

I don't know what will happen if you sell someone on ebay, ship internationally, over 250 USD, agreed no insurance in the terms and the buyer claimed did not receive.

If you can't afford to lose it, you need insurance.

The seller is always the one who is ass out when a problem arises (unless you are shipping empty boxes as a scam).

Paypal will always side with the buyer and screw the seller. Ebay disputes generally resolve the same way, which is awful considering that the seller can no longer leave feedback. That's pretty much why I've stopped using ebay. But yeah, shipping internationally is a pain, even to Canada. Plus, if you want to have insurance on the item that means you'll have to fill out the actual amount which means it'll probably get hit with customs charges for the buyer.

I pay and print USPS Priority mail shipping labels at usps.com or paypal.com and that includes free delivery confirmation. That said, I've had a few packages that I know were delivered but they were not scanned at delivery by the postal worker so they never showed up as delivered on the tracking page.

For Ebay Paypal shipments, I don't think delivery confirmation is enough for proof of delivery as a seller, I believe you need insurance as well so they'll get a signature?

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.

I care because I wanted the item enough to purchase it, hence I want the item more than I want the money I've paid for it. If it never arrives I get my money back and no item. Granted it's better than no money and no item but I'd have preferred to just get what I bought.

It's just idiocy sending an item out with no tracking if you're being paid via PP and not the gift option; all the buyer has to do is open a dispute and you'll lose. You'd be aswell shipping the item out and asking for payment when it arrives.

tracking or insurance doesn't increase the chance that a package will arrive (and arrive undamaged). It only provides a recourse if something goes wrong.

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.

What about the case of using USPS custom number as tracking? Would sellers benefit from this or lose out in a dispute?

I only receive tracking numbers for the more expensive purchases for items I've purchased online. Whether it is here on styleforum or sufu, askandy, etc.
