Hello,

I should have thought about this before selling an item on ebay, but the winner is from Russia. The item weighs about 3 - 4 pounds and would be mailed in a medium(?) sized box. I would ideally like insurance and a tracking number but I'm afraid it would be too expensive. Any recommendations? UPS or USPS?

Thanks.

Last time I tried to ship a fairly light item (I think it was jeans or a sweater) to Russia or Ukraine the only trackable shipping option was more than $80.

Russia is the one country on earth that even many reputable & buyer-friendly Ebay powersellers flatly refuse to ship to. I would take my cues from them.

Yeah, it was US bidders the whole time and then, literally at the last second, the guy from Russia bid. He didn't pay yet so maybe I'll do a second chance offer...don't want to get negative feedback though.
