Last time I shipped something, it was to Australia. The package safely arrived, though there were some hiccups (the watch passing through Japan customs). You guys were great helping me out with that. I come with another question. Now I'm thinking about shipping a more expensive item to the UK, worth near 1k. Do I indicate exactly what the item is on the custom form? I recall reading that one should never show any indicators that a watch may be inside the package. Last time I wasn't too worried indicating that the item was a digital watch, but I'm reluctant to indicate that it's a watch at this price point.
And for US sellers, what's your preferred USPS method for shipping watches overseas? I tried registered with tracking last time (the tracking was unreliable) but the watch eventually got to Australia in about three weeks. I'd like to use a method that is just as reliable, but faster.
I'm thinking about going Global Express with insurance up to 2k. Or I could go registered again or try a different shipping service. What do you guys think? There are so many options that it's a little bewildering.
Thanks all in advance. Going from CONUS only to international sales is still a little nerve wracking for me, but I'd like to learn and perhaps become a global seller.
