I think, you have some misconceptions, You can check the tracking numbers in several countries, for example the following start letters of the tracking number:
EE Shipments (Ems) can be chaecked for most countries who provide tracking of Incoming packets, Usa, Canada Post and many others.
CP Large packet Certified Airmail (more than 2 Kilos), can be checked in severla countries, Including Usa and Canada
RR Small certified airmall packet (less than 2 kilos): This one can only be checked locally and in very few countries, Like Canada, and Usps only when is in their hands, from Us customs departure to delivery.
Those are international Post service codes, many countries follow that rules.
The problem with refunds is that most of the buyers never return the money after reception, (according with other sellers experience) even one is using a debt collection service for recovery, with extra cost and trouble. I may had to use that service in the future.
