OOPS.. Shipped item with voided postage

I had some label issues and ended up taking my item (TV) to the PO with the voided label... What should I do? What will happen? Majhor sized Post Office. I took it yesterday and realized my mistake today...

You need to let your post office know, perhaps you can get it intercepted. Either that it will get returned to you if a scan is made on it and it shows there is no payment made for it.

How long ago did you request the refund for the voided label?  From what I understand, the delay between your request and the Post Office's processing of the refund is so they can be sure the postage wasn't used.  I would expect that upon seeing your label in the system, they will deny your refund request.

 

Did you keep record of the tracking number?  Has the package received an acceptance scan?  How does it read?

 

Was this package going to a buyer?  Or was it a return?  Other possibilities are that it may end up at it's destination with postage due, or be routed back to you.  I think it will depend on the timing of the void vs. actual shipment.

How did the voided label get on the package?   What happened to the good label I'm assuming you reprinted (or you wouldn't have had one to apply to your parcel since you voided the first)?

OK.. in tracking this morning it says "in transit".. However, eBay has already issues me a credit for this label.

I would notify the buyer just incase it is delivered with payment needed by them. Not likely but you never can be sure.

E Bay does NOT issue the credit.  The Post Office issues the credit about 14 days AFTER you request the void.  It may said label voided but if you look in your PP account you should see two charges for the same amount. 

 

As a previous poster has stated the delay of 14 days is to make sure the label is in fact not used.

This quest stands on the edge of a blade...stray but a little and you shall fail to the ruin of us all.
