Hm, tried chrome, safari, edge and phone, just in case it was a browser issue. might be regional.
It's definitely happened to me in the past, but lately has been ok. Here, I'm typically ok. We live in a very small town and the postmaster told me I am their #1 shipper, so they stop here with or without a scheduled pickup. They even call me directly on postal holidays to see if I want any packages picked up. I never do, but it's nice.

Yeah leaving feedback is something that I wish eBay did a better job of forcing buyers to do. I like Poshmark's system and how they require you to rate the seller & give you an option to leave feedback as well. I think that would really help a lot of us out in terms of providing more credibility for the volume we're moving.
I'm really lazy about leaving feedback even though I know I should. I think what stops me is the requirement to leave a comment. They're always just so inane, I can't fucking stand them. Just let us click a thumbs up and move on.

It looks like they do offer recurring pickups. I currently just drop stuff off at the PO on my way into town, but I might try this for bad weather days.

Hot doggity dog! Had never seen that option before, wonder if it's new. I just did the rest of the month in a few clicks and now don't have to remember each night! Thanks Mike!

Never had issue until yesterday, and today. Also never had my postal carrier call me, or come by when I didn't schedule a pick up.

thought maybe the schedule requests were going through, but I logged into the system to check scheduled pickups and get this.

Sent the wrong jacket to a buyer. I'm in Canada and can't feasibly accept it back so he gets a free Canali. Guess I needed to learn that lesson :brick:
I once sent the wrong size of a Patagonia GoreTex jacket to Hong Kong. I learned that lesson the hard way as well.

Sent the wrong colour Alberto trousers to North Carolina about 4 years ago. I only realized my mistake when he bought the other pair the next day and I could only find the pair I thought I'd already shipped. Born with a horseshoe up my ass, I guess?

I've been paranoid about shipping the wrong item ever since.

One for the block list. Said it was delivered never received, instructed him to contact his postmaster and local mail lady. Immediately opens a case on ebay for INR. Closed in my favor. Now threatening paypal/chargebacks.
