USPS wanted to charge me a extra $10 for putting Fragile stickers on my boxes?!?

I sell stuff on Ebay for a living and I had a couple fragile items that I had to ship out, it is rare that I have fragile items but sure enough, this time I did. I had a reel of Fragile stickers that I previously ordered off of the USPS website (free) a l

Answers:

You were definitely a jerk. You were lucky they didn't punch you in the face. Do you REALLY think the person who told you that is the same person who makes the rules? No, they were just doing their job. I hope they go out back and play soccer with your ******* package.

I wouldn't use the word "harsh" but the word I would use - you wouldn't want to hear. What's ridiculous is using an entire strip of them, which is why the wanted to charge you the $10. ONE on each side is sufficient. Any more than that could confuse the machine that reads the addresses. Perhaps, they decided to remove some. Perhaps, they let you go this time. Next time, they could decide to not take the boxes. It is THEIR service so, don't be telling them how to do THEIR job. They have a right to refuse any box and to have it addressed how they see fit. And, yes, they are fussy about their boxes too, some more than others.

when you put fragile stickers on they are supposed to treat the package with extra care and this means more effort is taken to protect it

I've had different Post Offices tell me odd things, like a 20 cent surcharge for mailing a manila envelope with the metal brads holding it shut for instance. Another post office looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned that.

Take your box to a different post office and see what they say. Or have the manager come out and SHOW you in documentation that there's a $10 surcharge.

what was the point of telling the PO all that bullsh//t?

They told you it costs 10$ extra for fragile parcels- you dont wanna pay the 10$ then dont - just go find somebody who will do it cheaper

you may well have insurance- - but just try claiming for a fragile item that wasnt marked fragile

or do you expect them to charge the same insurance for shipping a gold ingot as a ming vase just cos they happen to be the same value

I'm surprised that, as a regular ebay seller, you don't use the p/u service that usps offers...........much easier than going to a postal station

This fee isn't new and neither is the sticker, I think it has been around for at least a couple of years. It is only when you are requesting Special Handling by using their "Special Handling-Fragile" stickers.

You can take off THEIR stickers and use your own stickers that say "Fragile", "Glass"..or what ever it may be. But if you are using their stickers you are requesting special handling and therefore are charged the fee. Which by the way is currently $10.45.

No, I sell on Ebay and put Fragile stickers or write it on. There is no extra charge by the post office for that. The post office handles it by hand rather than throw it around. Maybe a private carrier charges.
