Re: Misuse of an USPS envelope

I use to do that until I knew that I should not do this. It never occured to me and there is a first for everything. Perhaps this mama didn't know so you can gently say something about how she maybe shouldn't do it again as it can get the recipient in hot water.

Bummed that I didn't think of that before (but I charge for Priority shipping, so I do ship legit) more bummed that it's illegal because recycling them is ESPECIALLY a good idea.

I just buy my mailers from the momma here. Great deals, fast shipping and it's helping another momma out. Nuttin' wrong with dat!!!

Re: Misuse of an USPS envelope

I've received about 5 packages in the past 2 weeks that were like this. I buy polymailers to ship all my stuff in unless someone pays for flat rate Priority or whatever, then I use the USPS shipping supplies. I had a lady on Ebay I purchased some stuff from, she printed the label as parcel post and then shipped in a Priority box...I had to pay the difference at delivery. She did end up refunding me later, but after a fight of how it was an honest mistake...blah, blah, blah.

Re: Misuse of an USPS envelope

I have "heard" that the USPS is putting invisible markings on the inside of the priorety mailers, including flat rate boxes and envelopes, sop they can just scan it and see if it is a priorety box or something. Alot of ppl make a habbit out of misuing the priorety packaging... but not me!! i would feel terrible if someone had to pay on the other end. I also check my scale frequently, ( weigh then take package to usps to wegh and compare) so no one gets stuck with having to pay becasue the package weighs more than i though...

Re: Misuse of an USPS envelope

hmm..I've had a few things come in priority mailers turned inside out, I had no idea it was illegal though!! I think I've reused one before...I hope the momma didn't have to pay more!!! No one has emailed me about it or anything, but for my business I always used polymailers

Re: Misuse of an USPS envelope

OMG! I feel horrible. I have shipped a couple things. I have polymailers, but I have the small ones, so if someone ordered a few things or larger things I turned them inside out! I hope no one got charged! I will have to invest in some larger polymailers now!
