    I would say so, prior to my original account being merged I had a feedback score of 110+, I wouldn't sell let alone mail a package without Signature Required being agreed upon.

    Oh boy!
    Prepare for prices to jump a bit!

    Though I think this move is better overall, the posts will be way cleaner now!

    All fair and clear rules.

    Seller's who don't take responsibility for delivering the item don't understand the basics of the exchange. I sell an item. You give me money and/or goods in exchange for my item including shipping cost. I'm responsible for providing you the item, or in this case shipping the item. If they don't get the item, the exchange isn't complete. I still owe them the item. I wouldn't buy from someone who didn't promise to deliver what I paid for.

    Protection for the seller is easy, signature confirmation and insurance.

    I don't think prices will jump, it just means that prices will be more up front instead of hiding behind the "net to me", 3.5% PayPal fees that I'm responsible for but I want you to pay, if you want insurance that protects me you will need to pay that as well... or we can skip all this crap and just send it to me "friends & family :rolleyes:

    PayPal charges 4.4% + $0.30 when a Buyer is located outside the USA.

    PayPal will still charge that same fee even if an International Buyer asks to have the item shipped to an address inside the USA.

    I’ve stated “Signature Delivery Required” in the listing.

    Nowadays, with thieves stealing packages off of doorsteps & mailboxes, I just factor in the $2.55 USPS Signature Delivery fees into the “TYD” price. This way, no one could ever say that they did not receive the package. Gives me peace of mind.

    Thanks Mods. That net biz was just bogus and who in their right mind send F&F to someone you don’t know?

    Excellent decision on the part of Bladeforums. The "net to me" "add x%" was ridiculous.

    Huge applause. I have no vested interest as am outside the US, but you dealt with this scorchingly hot potato admirably. :)

    To me it is a moral issue, partly, and I cannot praise you enough for this. Good stuff, Spark and the Moderators.

    I’ll speak after a few. I think you should also include that USPS 3 day priority shipping is also included in sale price too! Isn’t that always ASSumed anyways ??
    Signature and insurance ? F! iT!
    I think The seller and buyer can figure that out. If you’re that stupid you don’t understand what you’re buying you shouldn’t own knives !!:) This is how big Gubment screws it all up. Thanks.

    Getting the item purchased to the buyer is the seller's responsibility. Of course, the PO (or whatever courier) can screw up. But since only the person sending the package can claim insurance, it's the seller who get reimbursed for the lost item. Seller should refund the buyer, then claim and (hopefully) collect from the insurer. That's why insurance protects the seller, not the buyer.
