Default Shipping to Holland?

hey guys, im selling my M11 and bits on here, and I have a buyer from Holland who would like to purchase it.

He wants to pay with paypal, and I talked him into my asking price... can you think of any way I can potentially get screwed on this deal as a seller? Im mostly just leary about shipping overseas, but if I receive the payment via paypal, and keep a record of the tracking number i should be in the clear correct?

Thanks

As soon as the money hits ur pay pal transfer it to your bank and ALWAYS get a tracking number,,,,, I dont think you can get them on international shipping.
I have sent some goods to australia a few times no problem.
On of those maybe ,maybe not things.If they want it that bad i make them call me on the phone and discuss it. Hope you speak Dutch!!!!!!!!!!

What you will find is that the number off the customs declaration form serves as a tracking number...in fact more so than the usual USPS Delivery Confirmation. The down side is that it only registers until the parcel leaves the US. It DOES, however, clearly establish that a package was shipped and to where. You can enter the number off the declaration form into the "track package" text entry space and it will work like magic.

My favorite, especially for more valuable items like your M11, is to use the Express Mail International service. It's a BIT more expensive than Priority International but it comes with an automatic amount of insurance (something like $100--to most countries you can pay to increase this). The important thing is that insured packages are tracked MUCH more closely by the postal authorities here AND overseas and you can bet the postal authorities there will require the package be signed for.
