    So wait, according to USPS, there isn't any tracking information for International Priority Mail flat rate envelopes and small boxes; do those two shipping methods have "Delivery Confirmation" instead? If so, that will make shipping small items like jeans and shirts with tracking internationally much more affordable.

    Whatever you want to call it, the number they give you for priority shipped items tracks. It updates on USPS site as "accepted at post office at X pm May 31", then tells you they moved it to another facility, then says it departed origin country at Y time, then accepted by foreign customs, then out of foreign customs. At that point you can also track it on the Canada Post site using the same number.

    Priority has Delivery Confirmation free if paid for online, few cents otherwise. Won't tell you step-by-step, but should inform you of date paid, date shipped, date leaving country, date of arrival (I think the last can sometimes be screwy depending on where you're shipping/who's handling it but I've never had problems and never felt like ponying up for the international EMS rates)

    Absolutely. I don't know how I tolerated standing in those lines and then waited as the clerk processed every package. I enjoy the befuddled looks I get from time to time from some of the folks who have been standing in line as I walk it, drop the packages at the desk, and walk right back out.

    I'm always leery of private auctions for "normal" items (you know, pretty much anything other than porn and a year supply of Extenze. They're unnecessary now that bidder IDs are no longer visible to everyone. And when they are used by someone with suspect feedback, it's often so that third parties can't verify the claims of poor feedback.

    I would really like those boots and they're in my size, but I read all his feedback and the negative feedback is for sold items and all of the positive feedback is for purchased items. Not really prepared to deal with.

    Most of the time, but not always. You get tracking with priority international flat rate to Canada, but not necessarily to all other countries (usually it's ones where the shipping rates are much higher and the difference between regular priority int'l and flat rate is much larger).

    I have yet to experience that. The customs # on your USPS receipt serves to track the package. There may be a gap of information between the border and the final delivery confirmation but IME you always get that final delivery confirmation through the Track & Confirm USPS service
