I have shipped many packages to international buyers since March 15 and every
one of them has contacted me saying that they not only have not received their
packages, but that the information on tracking stops at our ports in the U.S.


I have contacted our US post office and it comes as no surprise that with the
shut down of not only our country but most countries in our world the deliveries
have been greatly delayed.

One of my buyers spent almost $500 in my store, and he (and I) are justifiably
concerned about the package.

From here on forward I am going to insist that all packages be sent withe insurance
and further tracking which you can only get from priority USPS or sending via
a private carrier such as UPS.

I suggest you all do the same. While it is wildly more expensive for the buyer,
it would save us all time and concern.

If you have any other ideas or suggestions please let me know. Thank you

Jenn

While I appreciate your info about International shipping, I suspended all International
orders a few weeks ago. Some sellers were posting about this problem in the
forum and a few decided to stop International sales. Other sellers in other
countries decided to also stop sales outside of their own country (ie: Internataional
for them).

I would recommend you stop shipping International sales also.

Hi Donna, I want to suspend also, but not seeing how to do that, any help would
be appreciated.
Thanks,

Hi Warren,

I also shut down my International shipping (except to Canada) and the way to
do it is in your shipping settings. Just disable the shipping option for your
International shipping (First Class or Priority Mail) . This will temporarily
suspend your international shipping without having to remove all your zones,
etc. Make sure you do this for all International shipping options you have listed.

We cut out international shipping as well until this blows over and airlines
start taking USPS mail international on a more consistent basis. I am not willing
to risk high $ PayPal claims for something completely out of our control.i don’t
anticipate shipping international until years end or longer .

If it really is wildly more expensive, you could of course always charge
a handling fee instead and cover any possible losses yourself. Depending on the
price and the odds of things getting lost.
