Just a heads up:

I have been hearing lots of folks mention issues with shipping to Germany in the past week or so. Packages headed to Germany should have a customs form and 2 copies of an invoice that is accessible on the outside of the package or it risks getting held up in customs (for a longer time).

In the past buyers have also said that Paypal labels are a red flag for Germany’s customs dept, so if you use a Paypal label that might be part of why a package gets stopped.

You can get free Customs Form Envelopes for the outside of your packages from the post office here–or if you are shipping a smaller package/in a pinch to get a package out, just tape a zip lock on so it can be opened at the border:
