I had a Zero feedback bidder from Canada hit the BIN on a redemption card, total sale $30. 6 days later dude hasn't paid, today I file a NPB, this afternoon he paid. His feedback is now 1 but it was a seller that said NO COMMUNICATION NO PAYMENT.

A little background on the buyer. I saw a post on the HI (Hobby Insider)site & the name looked familiar & sure enough it's him. He's posting about buying a bunch of auto's on the cheap on E-Bay. I post in the thread "Small world, the auto you purchased on the 20th was mine (this was on the 24th), let me know if you don't want it & I'll cancel the auction". Didn't hear a word from him on e-bay nor on the thread. I had 2 people from the site PM'd me saying beware of this guy. They had thier FB dinged by him after he made false claims on E-Bay. They both said he has multiple ID's so he's going to be impossible to fully block.

I want to insure he gets the package & I think USPS International Express mail with signature is my only option, it'll cost over $20 to ship but at least as the seller I'll be protected.

Do I have any other options that you know of to get tracking of the package because that's really all that's required?

Normally I ship stuff to Canada that's under 100$ vial 1st class mail & have had no problems. That's comming to an end quickly because of one bad apple.

I know it's a long winded story but I don't want my 100% fb dinked by a scammer, let me know what you think, please.

Bud can you just refund them then money and be done with it w/o getting fb messed up? I can't see spending $29+ on shipping for a $30 sale personally. I had one on Ebay that went for $130 and I wanted to track to Canada and the Ebay postage estimator was totally wrong as it said I could ship UPS for $18 and get to UPS store and they wanted $70 to track it as they said cheaper way to send there would be no tracking like when you send in US. So had to do the USPS which started at $29.95 and insurance or signature was extra I think. Why I had to think twice about selling to Canad as no economical way to track and they can just say they never got it, but being I'm doing a lot of Hockey cards it really kills you on bids as less bidding so I have included Canada to allowed bidders.

If I refund I'm open to a neg. , bad thing is it's a redemption so no way to track after the sale. That's why I want to ship via a method thats accepted by paypal. I know sig isn't required for under $250 but I don't think I can track otherwise. Plans are to be at the PO early tommorow so I don't hold up the lines & can review options for at least tracking, if I have to spend $30 for the sig. I will, I've worked hard for my perfect feedback.

If he tries any crap after this is done I'm going to go balistic on his XXX. I can't stand liars scammers & thieves, I will not be out done by one, it's been tried before & I've come out on top in every case.

Thought about that also, but I've seen horror stories on boards with people doing that, then the buyer filing a pay-pal claim. I would love to that way I could track the redemption as panini allows you to look at the status of a redemption without redeeming the card.

Think I paid 18 something to track a. $100 card to Canada with sign. Just to be safe! I all know is the new custom forms can bite me, after you fill out the form the PO has to type it into the system, took 20 minutes for 4 packages, at $3.13 a piece, plus as of the 22nd, no more stamps on packages, without CF ,will be mailed back to you!
Funny I just got a package from Canada, mailed from Canada in three days, 88 no custom form! Don't get it

Goodluck Bud on that, keep us updated
