Oh I do , happy to take them , and the plastic Northern Ireland notes too.

Mind you my English staff members were very wary of them initially. The real problem with accepting them is that no-one wants to accept them back as change once they are in the till.

It took me a while to convince the lady at the mondo stall last year at TB to accept my Scottish notes.
Maybe she fell for the accent. :)

never buying from england again or internationally for that matter. the nightmare to return a damaged item i got off ebay is not worth it.. 90 bucks to return a damaged item to get 300 back. ebay requires a tracking number but only fedex and ups provide those services in the US to prove it was delivered. is there something i'm missing, ebay refused to let me use their global shipping program to return it.. so i guess i'm done doing business with england cause it isn't worth it if that's the price you pay trying to return something. and it was only a little envelope too.. such bullshit.

Wowzers, if it's only a little envelope how come it's costing 90 bucks to ship?! Think your beef should be with UPS/fedex!
Was the shipping to you not insured? The ebayer should be able to claim it back for you and refund your costs.
Obviously there are costs and hassles involved with buying internationally, pretty much every poster us UKers buy comes from the US, and in our direction we also have the joys of potentially being screwed by import duty, as well as the risks of the postal service.

I regularly get tubes sent priority and express that are fully trackable and require a signature.

States that it's trackable in the link above. Can you maybe print the label at home if your local post office are being unhelpful?
