    Should we add tracking to the PIF rules?

    This is a yes or no question for those that participate in the PIF thread. We are considering adding tracking to the rules so that when you mail a PIF you also need to include tracking with it. This is only going to add an extra 0.90 cents to the package but it will also ensure that the package gets mailed.

    Do you agree with this, do you want tracking added to the PIF rules?

    Some people when sending a really light item item (e.g. cuben pouch), might send it as a First Class Mail letter/flat, which cost 0.46 for 1 ounce, 0.66 for 2 ounces, 0.86 for 3 ounces, and 1.06 for 3.5 ounces, so they would have to pay not only the 0.90 for tracking, but also the 2.07 minimum charge for a parcel that they have no need for.

    Rick, could you add a third poll option: "Don't Care" or "Either is Okay"?

    Also, when I ship, always USPS, my tracking/notification is free. What's the 90 cents you speak of?

    I've only done a couple PIF transactions, but I think tracking is unnecessary. Often the return PIF is already posted (and maybe claimed) before the item even gets to the post office. Maybe folks are having problems I'm unaware of, but IMHO, it is unnecessary.

    Ought to be mandatory for sales over, say, $50, however.

    I would never send a package with out a tracking number. I have been burned before. Great way to lose money.

    Priority is often cheaper, in my experience, and does come with tracking. Maybe that's been his experience as well.

    Curious, has it become a problem that this should be added?

    Although it is sad,sometimes you have to take steps to keep people honest..For one use priority and traking comes with it,but for two if it is the same person over and over he/she should be banned from the marketplace section, or the whole site if he or she is that dishonest a person, then we dont want them here anyway!,..3 strikes and your out, go rip off people on some other site.. but thats just my opinion
