I've had really good luck
with PayPal, and I think

protection up to $2,000. What more could you ask?
For my international buyers (outside the
U.S.), I've added
Moneybookers payment. It's similar to PayPal, but easier for
international customers to use.

U.S. Postal Service, via First Class or Priority, your choice.
However, if you prefer another service, such as UPS or FedEx, just
