Mobile Barcode Promo Glitch for Drop Ship Mail

without comments

I’m starting to get some feedback and grumbling from many mail service providers struggling to upload mailings with the Mobile barcode discount to PostalOne!  Seems to be some sort of problem with Drop Ship mail, allowed to be entered after June 26th (as long as it does not arrive at drop ship destination until after July 1).  This is clearly referenced in the Promo FAQs.  PostalOne! technology doesn’t seem to be supporting this, and there is no work around at this time.  Just failed file uploads and frustration.

I’m sure there will be more to report soon…

Canadian Mail Resumes Operation

without comments

From the DMM Advisory:

The U.S. Postal Service will resume accepting mail for Canada starting Tuesday, June 28. This action follows yesterday’s order by the Canadian Parliament for Canada Post employees to return to work tonight.

Mail that was held in the U.S. Postal Service network is being released today and transported to Canada in stages. Customers will experience some delays in service due to the large volume of mail that was being held. We are working closely with Canada Post to minimize these delays and to return to normal service levels as quickly as possible.

Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) remains the best option to avoid delays in service. GXG is available online at www.usps.com and at thousands of participating Post Office locations throughout the United States.

Additional information and updates regarding acceptance and movement of international mail is available at www.usps.com/communications/news/serviceupdates.htm.
