    HUGE - If you already knew about this, shame on you for not sharing [​IMG]

    http://www.trackitonline.ru

    Bookmark it, save it, use it. This site just saved me a item not received refund in paypal.

    Long Story Short - Guy buys item, says it's not delivered, tracking shows delivered on USPS website, guy opens case in PAYPAL**** (see note below), I would lose case due to tracking to the UK only..... www.trackitonline.ru saves the day.


    ****Paypal has a MUCH stricter policy for shipping international. Where ebay says you must prove the item was delivered to the Country (in this case the UK), paypal says you must prove that the item was delivered to the correct city (knotting hill). HUGE loop hole for people who avoid the ebay case and jump over to paypal knowing this. With a little luck http://www.trackitonline.ru will have additional tracking information online (like they did in my case). To further help protect yourself, 100% make sure you save the 4th page on the international customs forms that are stamped by the post office when you send the package out. If a case it open for an item not received (that shows delivered online to the country) I was told the majority of the time if you scan the stamped customer form and upload it to the case, paypal will verify the tracking number matches the ship to address and you will win. If you CAN NOT prove via online or the customs form it was delivered to the correct CITY, you will LOSE the case even

    I should note, this is very rare (1st time ever for me) and really takes someone overseas knowing what they are doing to beat the system. Most everyday people just open a case in ebay and if you do everything correct you will be protected, BUT if they know the rules they will try to avoid ebay and jump to paypal to open the case. You need to take all steps to help protect yourself in case this happens.

    Does anyone have a table or something so that I can know if my jacket is a L, S, or R? I have a general idea about chest size - a measured 39" would be a 42 (or 44 depending on the brand/waist). Have no idea how to go about figuring S, L, R though. :/

    I'm sure this question has come up before but if I have a jacket tagged 38R but is one of these modern high button stance and short BOC deals, do I list it as a 38S? (Clearly, actual measurements will be provided.)

    Doesn't help me if all I have to go on is sleeve/jacket length. I was looking for something more like sparrow's post.

    Can I use Regional Rate boxes to ship internationally as Priority Mail International?

    So it's the same cost as shipping in a brown cardboard box: measured by weight?

    Shit, I have to rethink my system if so.

    Related, can you wrap a regional rate box with paper and still use it as a regional rate?

    Yes, Im quite sure I have done it. I understand that unless something is flat rate, then its regional. Am I wrong?

    Yes, the bolded is definitely wrong. There's flat rate, regional rate, and weight/distance (brown box).

    There are tons of different options for Priority shipping boxes. I have far too many in my office to choose from... I'll be donating some of them back to the Post Office.

    You can order them for free at USPS's website...
