USPS Throws Packages During Holiday 2015

USPS Throws Packages During Holiday 2015
Two days ago, the USPS made the news headlines when it came to public attention that some of its branches were filming customer license plates and using facial recognition to record those customers faces using hidden cameras at their parking lot exits.
Today, the USPS is back in the news for throwing packages being shipped by online sellers to their customers.
As a representative of online sellers and as an online seller myself, I find this in-reprehensible and a total disregard for the business we provide to the USPS, especially during the holidays.  The past two years selling online under the current US economy have hit hard for many online sellers as it is, no online seller needs the additional headache and financial losses that are created by a damaged package.
It is true, and I would be the first to tell any online seller who asked, that any package they ship needs to be able to withstand the 5-foot drop test, but as I watch the video (be…

Is the US Post Office watching you

Is the US Post Office Watching You?

As online sellers, the majority of our business is dealing with shipping services, and primarily with the US Postal Service.  This is especially true during the holiday seasons from October through January.
What you may not be aware of, is US Postal Offices have began video recording your vehicle license plates and doing facial recognition scans. Does this alarm you? It should!  Especially when no one in the US Postal Inspection Department is fessing up to what happens to those images, who sees them, what government agencies have access to this information, and merely that they are not providing legal disclosure regarding their covert actions.
What may strike you as even more unusual is that postal supervisors who manage the inner activities within local post offices are unaware or not admitting to knowing about the presence of these hidden cameras that have been covertly planted outside and around their branch.

Customer Support Tickets on Storenvy

Customer Support Tickets on Storenvy
If you sell on Storenvy, as I do, you may find yourself frustrated by not knowing the status of your customer support status tickets. 
The Storenvy Facebook Support Group is continually full of sellers complaining about not hearing back from Storenvy support after submitting a question or concern through the support contact. Mostly during the weekends when Storenvy is closed, and well, let's also say there are plenty of impatient people selling online, who expect an immediate answer or in less than two days.

On a more realistic note, Storenvy is a small company of a handful of employees doing their best to handle the 60,000 store sellers and their customers, and therefore has to prioritize the customer support tickets. Someday, when Storenvy is making more profit they will be able to add more staff to their customer assistance. As it currently stands, after several years of giving free custom stores away with little profit for Storenvy, they a…
