  1. I need to ship a package to a confirmed paypal buyer in the UK.
    I am not familiar with priority mail international.

    Does anybody know if it's like Domestic Prioirty mail- meaning, does this service offer delivery confirmation so that I am protected under paypal's seller protection policy?
    Much thanks in advance!!!
  2. This is what comes up with. It doesn't say anything about delivery confirmation. Tracking is only available to major destinations. Whatever that means ;), but it could be difficult in case you would have to proof shipment to paypal.

  3. I always use Express International Shipping with USPS. It's still very reasonable as compared to UPS or FedEx and you're covered with paypal seller protection if you ship to a confirmed address.
  4. Send it USPS Express and print your label through the USPS website it's cheaper!
    Also with Express mail they have to sign for it so you should be fine.
  5. wow thanks girls for the quick response! phew good to clarify, it's a little unclear on the paypal website and i wasn't sure if it was even an option that protects you....
  6. Is the buyer a confirmed paypal address? I thought UK buyers didn't have confirmed paypal addresses... To be covered by Paypal, it must be a confirmed address.

    In any case, just some warning. I recently sent a package to Germany using EMS and the buyer didn't receive the package after three attempts of delivery. She ended up going to the post office and picking it up herself. When I checked the online delivery confirmation, the website could NOT VERIFY delivery, even though the buyer told me she signed and picked up the package. That could potentially be a big problem for me if someone tried to file a Paypal claim!
  7. Hi, I think they just added UK as able to have confirmed paypal addresses (I think Canada as well) hmmm that is really bad new about the ems not showing up... i wonder if it's possible to get a copy of signature for pick up like they do here for domestic mail....
  8. ^ I should give that a try... well, she hasn't done anything yet, I'm just being paranoid. But it's scary to think about!
  9. thithi, USPS packages are delivered by DHL here in Germany. The update on DHL tracking information can take pretty long sometimes. I had packages already delivered while the tracking said it was still in transit.
