Hello Ecrater Sellers!

I would love to know how many of you are selling to international buyers where you need to have tracking information?

This is somewhat of a debatable issue for me. When I found out recently that USPS will not longer provide tracking on First Class International to all foreign countries except Canada and Australia, I am very reluctant to sell to all other countries.

Would like to have your input!

I have sent packages to the United Kingdom and do my postage through Paypal. It provides a tracking number there.

Where did you find this information? This is quite different from the information provided by USPS on 07/01/2020. I posted a topic here:
eCRATER.com Forum Index -> eCRATER sellers only -> International Delivery Confirmation & Int. shipping Prob
https://community.ecrater.com/viewtopic.php?t=38819 giving links to pages posted by USPS with an update to international countries with tracking for First Class International. If you have a source for updated information, please share the link. I haven't found any more recent updates from the USPS.

By the way, the USPS has never provided tracking for First Class International to ALL foreign countries, only a select group which has been reduced as of 07/01/2020.

SheilaDees,

This is where I got the information.

Actually, EcommerceBytes put this information out.

When the price of international postage went up so high, I quit routinely having sales to international countries. However, if someone asked for international shipping I oblige and send them a PP invoice and they buy or not.
