Both of which track the package and require the buyer to sign for the package (which is what you need for ebay/paypal proof of delivery) for items over $250. I would add insurance, and DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT lower the price on the customs form. Besides being illegal (pretty sure, you would need to double check), if your item is lost and "stolen" then you only have insured a $10 or $20 item and not a $400 item which is what he paid.
Sure other will throw their hat in the ring, but this is my opinion and have never had an issue shipping international to any country.
Thanks, I will definitely go for 1st class registered through USPC if I do decide to proceed.. Before I message the guy back with a shipping estimate I may try to probe around a little longer to see if I have any biters within the states, as this would obviously make things less complicated.

Just don't do it. You will not get to keep your money long.
Yeah, I thought that was a little questionable, but the sweater is a size 46 italian, which leads me to believe (since not many grown men are this thin) that he's just a kid who is spending all of his paycheck from waiting tables on a sweater that he will buy and then probably never find the occasion to wear..
