"YOU NEED PROOF OF DELIVERYIt's not just buyers who get caught out by unscrupulous sellers – buyers get up to skullduggery too. One problem is buyers winning a mega-pricey item such as an iPhone and claiming it never arrived, then claiming the cash back - even though they have the item.To qualify for eBay's seller protection, you must use a service that comes with "online trackable proof of delivery", such as Royal Mail's Recorded Delivery. For items valued over £150, it also requires signature confirmation."
The problem with is that Royal Mail Recorded Delivery is NOT a trackable service - the much more expensive Special Delivery is. Recorded delivery only aims to provide proof of delivery via a signature, but often doesn't even do that.

[FONT="]I have been using a new online service - ebuyersreviewed. com and I like it a lot. You can screen a buyer before you ship any item to him/her or report one so other sellers can benefit from your experience. I hope this can help you in future.
