Haven’t taken a hiatus from selling abroad?

If you’re still shipping internationally (we are on eBay), some advise: Don't
ship using shipping services that require a signature (such as registered for
you Germany vendors) as your package will be handled uniquely by the various
carriers and postal systems, from packages that can simply be left for the recipient,
in a mailbox, po box, at the door or through the door mail slot, etc.

It’s a unnecessary complication during these days of sequester, that will result
in even longer delays or possible nondelivery.

To be clear, there’s little to no risk of viral spread via these packages on
their tail-end of delivery, but they will be mixed with the local mail, which
is being handled as risky to personnel.

I would apply the same advise to domestic postage for now, reducing the face-to-face
interactions for postal employees.

Just something to ponder
