Hi folks, I have a bit of a conundrum with regard to international shipping that at times makes me tempted to scrap it altogether or set minimum orders for international shipments. here is the crux of the problem: Sending things via Air parcel Post I can show that i shipped it but have no way of tracking it and on occasion i've had a few get lost. I always end up eating those shipments and on at least one occasion I know from a friend of the recipient (who took offense tot he practice) that the customer HAD received the goods but knew I couldn't prove it. (Yuck) Sending via Fedex/UPS/DHL is very expensive and they sometimes will charge brokerage fees and seem to charge higher duty BUT I can track it and prove delivery. And oh yeah - if the buyer doesn't pay the duty then they come back to me for it. Curious to hear from those who do a fair amount of international shipping to see what works for you.
