Fine in Peckham, got a 2nd class parcel today that was sent Fri.
Sounds like you need to fake a kids drawing thanking the posties and stick it in your window.

Lazy drivers will say I buzzed/knocked and no was in, but you been in all day.

DPD app lets you drop off at DPD shop and prices way cheaper than Parcelforce.

Pretty sure I wanna see a smudge of carl handing his parcel over to a bedraggled Postmistress with an accusatory glare in his eye more than I want bog roll and pasta right now.

Sold a vintage ghetto blaster to USA and the buyer says there is no battery cover.

Cover was in my listing photos and definitely sent so I can only think parcel was inspected and battery cover was detached somehow before repackaging - checking for drugs?

I’ve told buyer to take it with EBay GSP as I am only responsible for shipping to the hub and then it is Ebay GSP responsibility.

He paid £78 shipping Eek

Just a bit worried he will hit me with a INAD case if he doesn’t get anywhere with Ebay GSP.

Definitely a problem for GSP. Had an issue earlier this year where they sent a parcel to LA instead of Sweden. GSP is run by Pitney Bowes so as far as eBay is concerned, once it reaches the depot and you have the notification, it isn't your problem. They will check the listing to see what was sent as well.

I sent a pair of Converse through GSP and got an email to say customs had had to destroy them with no explanation Laughing out loud
They refunded the buyer and I got to keep the money so didn’t care but seemed a bit odd.

DPD and Amazon Cool

Why would any business use Parcelforce these days? local depot have definitely drafted in help, had two parcels go missing and had to revert to vendors, nowt worth half inching, pond paint and a kids toy! Clocked the driver at other addresses in the street, twat just sits outside properties, doesn't leave the van then fucks off! Assuming just to register his location, even shows up later in the day at other properties in the street, proper messed up.

Adidas have been coming correct with Parcelforce to be fair.
