    What postage method to use?

    Just a quick Q:

    Im wanting to sell an old laptop on ebay (val £~120). I will only be accepting payment via paypal.

    To qualify for paypal coverage the parcel needs to be tracked, it will weigh around 4KG.

    What service (royal mail) should i use to send it?

    To clarify:
    -Must be tracked. More specifically must qualify for paypal coverage.
    -Insured to £150
    -Not too expensive

    Thanks

    Royal Mail Special Delivery.

    Or you can use parcel2go, gives all the prices for all the couriers.

    lots of couriers will have this included in their exemptions for insurance

    I use Royal mail special delivery, check their website for cost.

    Special delivery will be £22 !

    You are better going with a courier and adding insurance, will be around £10

    whyyy? & which one to avoid them?

    Parcelforce 48, tracked delivery in 2 days, insured to £150 = £13.50. Any good?

    you cant add another quid or so to increase the insurance level with recorded delivery. The maximum is £41.

    Check out payperparcel, I haven't used them in a while but they had less exemptions than parcel2go and an automatic £100 insurance.
