Sick of the post office stealing my mail and have absolutely no idea how I can report it?

Hello all,

I sell stuff on ebay..collectibles, ceramics, beauty items, etc. In the past year, about 5+ of my packages have gone missing..completely VANISHED into thin air. This makes me FURIOUS, because most of the time they are -100 items and my customers are angry and think I am trying to "jip" them, which is not the case. In turn, I have had cases opened on me and received negative feedback, which REALLY hurts my small online store/business.

I print my postage from Paypal and weigh everything PERFECTLY. I mean, it’s just perfect. Nothing crazy in my boxes/packages for them to be suspicious. Also…a few of my customers who HAVE received their items have complained that it was OPENED and then retaped shut. I was SO mad.

I live in New York, the Queens Area, and personally schedule pick ups for my mail, as I have about 5-20 packages, at a time, that need to be sent out. The mail guy comes to get them, personally..so how in the world is this happening??? I am furious. I don’t know how to prove it or WHAT post office I should report, since I’m sure there are about 4 in the area and I have no idea where each package is rerouted after it’s picked up for delivery.

Can someone please help me? This is killing me…utterly destroying my business and costing me SO much money because they stole the item, and I also have to refund them everything…and I lose out on what I paid for postage as well.
Hi, I use Priority Mail with a tracking confirmation number EVERY single time and it has still gone missing. I can click on the tracking number and clearly see that it’s not being updated. Isn’t this as good as insurance? I only wanted to avoid insurance because it is SO darn expensive. But if it helps my packages to NOT go missing, I will start using that. My pick up guy is SO nice and I already voiced this issue to him and he even encouraged me to report the issue because that shouldn’t be happening. Since then, another TWO have gone missing, so I don’t feel like it could be him and that he’s that stupid to steal. He’s the kind of post guy that LOVES his job and does everything by the books.

USPS Question: I paid for postage online, im sending a box to someone. But it wont be 4- 4-20 weeks till maild?

Hi there. I understand that I have only 3 days to get a refund on prepaid postage that Ive paid for and printed online……(I am sending a box of items to someone out of state) they already paid me through ebay…..but the items wont be able to be shipped for another few weeks, and as far out as February 2012….(its not a typical ebay transaction, I have a relationship with this person) so I clicked ‘print shipping label’…paid for it….and printed it….. but the box wont be going out as planned…..it was printed/paid for about a week ago.

The other day I was dropping off a small/flat rate box item out to the nearest big blue USPS mailing box/bin and I got there right as the postal worker showed up. He looked at my box, and pointed out that there was printed date on the label that I had printed out……and he said "it was supposed to have shipped out this date, [and pointed to the date marked saying] they should have already gotten the package.

ALL AND ALL: what Im saying is the postal worker did not like that there was that date….SHOWING that I was DELAYED in mailing out the package……that small package was only about 4 days off from the day it was supposed to have gone out and he mentioned that….

what will happen if I try to ship a box of items with a date that’s MUCH older than a week ???? Can I hand write over that?? Can I make edits??? DID I just straight up lose my money because I waited longer than 3 days?

Does the post office give free boxes for shipping?

Like lets say you want to ship something to a person that they bought off ebay. Before you do this, can you go to the post office and get boxes? Lets say they send you a money order, do you go and cash the money order, and then go and buy a postage stamp for the box or what?

Also how can I send my box back to the seller? She doesnt answer her e-mails. She accepts refunds if it isnt working, and my product isnt working, so can I just put a note inside the box, and tape it back up, and put it out in the mail? Or do I have to pay to reship it?

Help! USPS postage doubt?

Where do I obtain a {content}.83 postage?
Do I need to go to the window or can I buy stamps that add to .83? Or is there an .83 shipping label that I can purchase and print on-line at usps.com?

The package is medium size and rectangular.

I have never shipped anything before in my life. I am a first time eBay seller and sold my first item. The item inside the package as I mentioned weights 1.0 oz and I offered free shipping. Did I make a mistake? Should I have charged for shipping. I think I was dumb to believe thar by offering free shipping I could send the package free of charge.
