The CS Rep I spoke with on the phone insisted that because USPS operates on Saturdays, anything not shipped on a Saturday could count as a defect against me, even though I only ship Monday through Friday. Has anyone else seen a defect pop up as a result of not shipping something on a weekend?
I told her that it would be grossly unfair to one-person businesses to force them to work six days a week in order to avoid losing TRS status.
She did, however, assure me that I should have two months of grace period if I do lose TRS status over those packages that were "shipped late" in early December. If I do lose TR status at some point, my return policy and handling times will both change.
