1) There will be a "quiet period" during December over the Christmas holiday when no grippers will be shipped. The postal system anywhere, USA included, is notoriously bogged down and less accountable.
2) All grippers will be shipped with a traceable carrier. The cert fee will be actual cost. Yes, this does mean cert fees will be higher across the board. For USA this can be registered mail. For International it will have to be FedEx, DHL, EMS, etc, whatever is cheapest and best for the region.
A common misconception is that the USPS "delivery confirmation" with or without signature is a traceable package. It is not. They scan these in transit as a courtesy, but are not required to scan them, and are not even able to scan them on International shipments.
Questions and comments are welcome.

Glad to know this change for when I go for another gripper certification attempt.

What was the scare?
