you may claim compensation for a lost item, provided you obtained a certificate of posting when you posted the letter. The certificate is provided free of charge, and you'll be covered for the value of the lost item, or 100 first class stamps, whichever is the lowest.

You will not get any compensation for the loss of an uncrossed Postal Order.

Perhaps off subject, but remember using eBay and sending postal orders, especially of higher value, then the item or sale is not protected by eBay or PayPal.

If the seller proves difficult, then a dispute would have to be processed, and you would need to provide all the evidence.

Royal Mail would have to deal with a lost items. As the FE states, make sure that you get a certificate of posting, duly stamped, signed and verified at the post office counter.

I would always use PayPal with anything I buy on Ebay especially if it was for a large sum of money. Does the seller have good feedback?
