    Ah Christ, I sold something to someone in Switzerland last month and it hasn't shown up yet. It's probably been about two weeks, so chances are he's going to receive it soon and USPS First Class International is to blame at the moment. But now he's requesting a refund, which is fine if it becomes clear that the item is actually missing. I'm sensing a PayPal chargeback in my future.

    I've had tons of First Class packages to Europe take 3+ weeks, even up to over a month at least twice. It's really unpredictable.

    Yeah, it's usually pretty good at meeting the 7 to 10 day estimated delivery time frame, but there's that occasional one that takes an eternity to get there. And as a seller, you can only hope that the buyer is patient and understanding enough to wait it out with you and not have a quick trigger finger about it.

    I don't even think he can file a claim until 4 weeks or something has elapsed, can he?

    I don't think so, but I always get paranoid in these situations because there isn't much stopping him from saying he never got the item even if it does turn up.

    Sometimes you can use the customs form # as tracking if you have that.

    I don't have the form, but thankfully, I still have the receipt, which has the customs form number on it.

    I'd send the buyer a photo of the receipt ... sounds like he isn't scamming but is just a bit too worried?

    i like priority, even if it's a bit more expensive.
    not sure it's only 'a bit'. oftentimes 3-4 times more expensive ime

    this is why shipping international irks me so much. Especially with expensive stuff, I still do it, but I always pray after.

    international priority seems like the way to go. I'd say express especially if the item is past a certain amount of money..
