We all do our best efforts and in the end it's up to the post office to deliver the goods!
Half the time it's "them" that screws up things, not us.

thats why you use delivery confirmation ......(best 70 cents you spend for shipping)
Marc just remember you chose them as the shipper....so you do still have a responsibility.....
My profession I rely on timely deliveries of equiptment, parts and documentation. Speedy delivery costs $$$ and I always give my customers options....Good solid communication is key......

if your at all concerned about the item, use delivery confirmation. we've put together MANY tools and information sources in the marketplace tools that people should take care to read.

i'm willing to bet 80% of all complaints are a result of a lack of communication.

i beg to differ on the shipping responsibility. if i pay usps with d.c. to ship and item and it's lost, i don't feel i'm in any way liable for said item. just like fedex or ups delivering to the wrong address. this is why shipping agencies offer delivery confirmation, insurance, etc.

now, if you choose not to use any safeguards, your only putting yourself in a terrible position of not being able to confirm anything other than maybe your receipt which may or may not offer a package number. i, like others, HIGHLY suggest you use delivery confirmation at the very least.

i've actually had a deal go bad in which delivery confirmation confirmed it was shipped but the buyer swore they never got it. it was not a big item or high value so i refunded the money but i don't feel i was obligated in anyway to do so. i had proof his address had received it. that was sufficient for me but in the interest of avoiding a public posted fiasco, i just made it go away. unfortunately i think many sellers find themselves in the same situation dispite taking precautions. feedback can be just as easily abused as it can be to help.

I see us agreeing ( i said a responsibility, not full responsibility)....as long as you communicate and use d.c. that is the extent of your responsibility. If you are sending anything of real value you give the option to insure it....
When your the seller the buyer is your customer and if you want that good
feedback you have to make them happy....

yes, you do want a good customer.

again, communication is the most common problem of all transactions. email is cheap and easy. no excuses. you can send email from cell phones now.
