With the Brexit heading south I expect the problems with international postage rather increase than decrease, so I would always prefer having tracking (and insurance!) enabled, even if it costs a couple of EURs more in the future.
Sounds like we're going to need a EU distributor ;)

Preferable someone who never heard about CE conformity and has a very good insurance against everything ;) Oh yes, and he should really hate earning money ;)

Most of my transactions are outside of the EU.. So I have to pay import taxes on pretty much everything anyway :(

People buying from my store inside the EU may be subject to import taxes in the future.. But of course import/export taxes should be down to individual governments not the EU commision :roll:
