Maybe pm the next on the list with a heads up. Keep the stickers smallish so the can all show for awhile.

i think adding costs and time between destinations will help the WTB/WTS guys here also Wink

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being

the K1200s I sent to the states was around 20 USD

let’s see how much sending the same box differs

Hmmmmmmm, this case looks familiar, is this the case that comes with the sipik sk98 with battery and charger sets?

Guess I have to wait next year for the package to reach here?(Assuming chinese shipment standards) LOL!

I’ve been thinking about the issue about the tracking and I think I’ve come up with a solution, it’s up to you weather you send the box tracked, (recommended) but I can’t force you to do that because of the prices for some people.

So I think the best solution would be to take a picture of the recipt and send to the person to let them know (with their address/post code visible)
That proves you’ve posted it?!

Not the best solution but could be saving some people $30!

A small light box should not cost to much for extra tracking within a country.

I haven’t been reading every post but how about a heads up pm to the next person on the list for address? In my case I would PM legolas with my address and he would PM me with tracking # or proof of shipment. This has worked for me before with items shipped to members abroad.
