Tracked shipping is the way to go since both you and your buyer can track the journey of the parcel. Plus there’s proof of postage. It is also the best protection for late deliveries and MIA (missing in action) parcels. Make sure you choose a carrier that:
- conducts acceptance and delivery scans. Bear in mind, just because a parcel is listed as ‘Registered Mail’ does not mean that they conduct A-Scan and D-Scan.
- provides tracking numbers. Please ensure that the tracking number is uploaded to eBay within the Handling Time.
Certain shipping options may be covered with insurance by the shipping carrier. This means if your parcel goes missing, you don’t have to bear the loss yourself. So remember to check if your selected carrier offers insurance coverage too.
