Bought a small part (gun) I needed to complete a TF. The item would have fitted in a regular padded envelope, but he insisted it needed to be sent by registered package, making the shipping more expensive than the item I was buying.
I am not defending the guy in any way as I have only bought from him once, but he might have had to use a registered package to get a tracking number internationally. Tracking numbers are a must especially dealing internationally as it's the only thing that will protect a seller from an "Item not recieved case".
That's both true, and it's a fair point.
I did ask him about cheaper shipping before bidding (explicitly stating I would accept the risk, for something which was in effect a low value item), but he told me it was his policy for overseas transactions, as stated in the item description (and he advised me just to add a few items to my order, which would also fit in the same package). Still, that's his right, and I did give him positive feedback.
