I ask because I did a trade once with someone here in Whales and I used USPS to ship the package.

 

Several months have passed and he never got the package :< I am glad though that he didn't lose anything in the process but I'm afraid that if I try to ship internationally again I might have the same problem.

 

So I come to ask those who live in the states who do frequent trading: Whats the best service to use when shipping tamagotchis worldwide?

I can answer this one. I don't frequently trade, but I do ship out over 200 international packages a year. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I only use USPS first class international. I've lost one package internationally in total. Something new USPS is doing that they didn't do many, many months ago...on the customs from you fill out, the ID number on it is trackable now. Now it will disappear for awhile when it leaves the states. But it will pop back up as delivered or when it hits their local mail facility. Also, if for a purchase and it is marked as goods in paypal you'll both be covered if it would be lost in shipping. Just keep your portion of the customs form safe in case anything did happen, paypal would require proof of shipping. <3
