USPS and International Shipping! IMPORTANT FOR US SELLERS!

So I realized recently that USPS removed the ability to add tracking to packages shipped international: it says it in the descriptions of the services still, but does not allow the option to add it. So, I called USPS about it and she verified that yes, in fact, there is no way to track international packages (the medium and large flat rate boxes and express mail have pseudo tracking but she said it’s not really tracking at all, it just says when it has left the country not even if it has been delivered)

So I called Paypal knowing that their buyer protection is only valid if a package has tracking - The PP rep verified my fears. They know about it and yes, USPS is NOT valid for buyer protection! She said the only way to get it is using UPS and FedEx because they have true tracking and to not use USPS to ship international packages!!


tl;dr:
IF YOU USE USPS TO SHIP INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES YOU ARE LOSING BUYER PROTECTION - YOU ARE NOT SAFE FROM PP DISPUTES AS A SELLER WHEN USING THEIR SERVICE.


If you want to reblog this on tumblr I have it posted here: http://secretduckie.tumblr.com/post/52240252475/international-shipping-everyone-should-know
