eBay UK Seller Pleads with Buyers over Package Tracking
Would it be possible to explain to World members of eBay that when buying low priced items from the UK, it is financially impossible to get a tracking number on a 10-pound (US$16) or under transaction, the postal costs from the UK for signed for mail are too high to make it really feasible for even items up to 25 pounds ($38).
I get many requests from China & USA/Canada for tracking numbers on small purchases. The British Post Office will give us a certificate of posting which has no tracking number, just acknowledges that we have mailed an item to a certain address.
So please, buyers, stop bombarding us with requests for a service we cannot fulfil! Registered/Insured delivery is always possible as long as you are willing to pay 8 pounds ($12.50) for the privilege.
