Plain and simple, USPS Priority flat rate with the online insurance. Will cost you $26 at best. If its lost, the new insurance claim process ( which is amazaballs awesome) will refund you or the buyer. If its over $250 though, use express.

Ashgabat, TURKMENISTAN

Didnt even know that was a country, FYI.

Couldn't find a clip, but this was the most appropriate scene from The Office:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Michael: Okay, you know what? I will not donate my winnings to comic relief since apparently it doesn’t exist. I am going to donate to Afghanistanis with AIDS.

Jim: I think you mean the aid to Afghanistan.

Michael: No, I mean Afghanistanis with AIDS.

Phyllis: “Afghani.”

Michael: What?

Phyllis: It’s “Afghani.”

Michael: That’s a dog.

Pam: No, that’s afghan.

Michael: That’s a shawl.

Dwight: Wait, canine AIDS?

Michael: No, humans with AIDS.

Creed: Who has AIDS?

Jim: Guys, the Afghanistananis.

I'm trying to think though the permutations, and I think this does cover me. Bottom line, it's the lack of tracking that's the most worrisome. If he doesn't get it but someone else does (or he does and he's just scamming me), can I claim on the insurance? Anybody know?

Priority has tracking, but not signature capture. You can claim an insurance claim either for undelivered or "damaged". Yafeels?

About a year ago I sold a pair of BB Women's riding boots to an SF member from Kazakhstan. Smooth transaction.

I've heard of Turkmenistan. Sterling Archer had a rough time there this week.

Yikes. Just listed an Aquascutum raincoat and this warning popped up. Scared me!

^I've seen that come up for heavily branded designers, but not that brand before. Odd.

I got that last week for an old Burberry's coat. I decided it wasn't worth the aggravation. Seems like it's a pretty random process that picks up items to question.

I get that message when I'm listing certain brands...wouldn't think I'd see it for something like Aquascutum though!


Don't you hate that sinking feeling you get when communicating with a potential buyer? A series of messages began with asking for a discounted price (I obliged) to what my return policy is to shipping it cheaper. To be fair, they have been polite the entire time, but it always worries me when someone asks a return policy and wants to negotiate shipping prices.

Of course, it could be completely reasonable, so I'm not sure!

 I've gotten that for listing Burberry stuff too, but not always... It seems to be for certain items (raincoats and polos at least). It didn't come up when I listed a Burberry London sport coat last week...

It's nothing to worry about. That is their generic, blanket disclaimer that they put up on popular brand names. There's probably a disclaimer for pretty much all the categories. For toys the disclaimer is for recalled items, for electronic media it's for pirated material, etc.

Absolutely no reason to worry.

What aggravation? It's not picking up anything and there is no process. It's just a reminder not to sell counterfeit goods, that's all it is. It's just like the Terms of Service on any website (SF included).

Good to know. The sentence referring to it being flagged and reviewed led me to wonder if I would have to prove authenticity somehow.
