address on paypal transaction and eBay order details match?

you're still responsible until delivered. if it gets delivered to wrong/old address, you should be good.

Shipping out an item today via USPS and suddenly the only insurance option is USPS, along with a notation that says, "Destination country is not supported by ShipCover." Destination country is USA, address is a residence, not a company or re-shipper. I've always used ShipCover, haven't had to file any claims yet (knock on wood), so I assume I'm in good standing with them. Anyone else seen this?

I've had it happen. No clue why. I have had luck just backing out and starting over.

I accidentally didn't notice recently, and of course that's the time that the buyer claims they didn't get the tube even though teh postal scan gps coordinates show it was delivered on their property. :hanging:

quick question about using "insurepost" or other outside insurance..... sending USPS (with tracking)... are you REQUIRED to have a signature confirmation or some other service to be covered? below is the language from their website. i used insurepost a couple times as it is cheaper than purchasing via ebay. however, i was shipping with tracking (but no sig confirmation). does that void my coverage? luckily haven't had any claims. adding a sig confirm increases price by $2.55 so may still be cheaper than ebay (depending on insured amount).

USPS shipments with tracking (w / Tracking) include the following USPS services: Delivery Confirmation, Signature Confirmation, Certified Mail, Express Mail, or Registered Mail. Domestic shipments sent via the USPS without one of these services are not covered.

Delivery confirmation is standard with priority. If you have any of those it's covered.

anyone have experience with USPS FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL to france and having a "lost" package? tracking hasn't been updated since january 16th and buyer said item not received. the ebay note states "Delivery Confirmation is not available for this shipping service, for the destination country that you've selected". does that negate my insurance via insurepost?

do i have any course of action to request a "search" for the missing mail? or what are my options? am i SOL?

Yes you can do all that through the USPS site. Find missing package and if long enough file a claim. Where are you shipping to? Have you tried that countries local carrier? For example if headed to the UK you should be able to track through Royal Mail.

i submitted a search request via USPS and received a "search ID #" / case.

however, since the package made it over to france...... not sure the process. the tracking for lapost.fr comes up rather limited and wasn't sure if there was a direct way to request the french postal service to start a search.
