    I always send mine untracked with no problems. At least you don't have to worry about them scamming you. Would probably send valuable stuff tracked and insured as RM and couriers do lose stuff

    I use whatever service I showed on the listing, so usually standard 2nd class, although standard parcels now have proof of delivery of course. I wouldn't pay extra for signed for if the value of the item didn't warrant it.

    I use RM48 no tracking but a POD. No issues with the POD updating.

    Similar to Soolin, if its under £20 I don't bother with signed for, over £20 then get signed for to get the higher compensation from Royal Mail if it does go missing.

    And always use the method you put on the original listing!
