I ordered a couple of items from a major online retailer who would not accept my South Puffin address because it is a post office box. I tried moving the P.O. box to the second line with the street address on the first. No joy. I tried including the P.O. box on the street address line. No joy. I left the street address. After all, they don’t mail this stuff, right?
Naturally, I popped the tracking number into FedExdotcom to see where it was this morning. The seller had handed it off to FedEx who put it in their SmartPost system. “When it comes to low-weight shipping for residential customers, consider the efficient, economical FedEx SmartPost service. By utilizing the United States Postal Service for final delivery, FedEx SmartPost reaches every U.S. address, including P.O. boxes and military APO and FPO destinations. You can even use FedEx SmartPost to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, and all U.S. territories.”
SmartPost means FedEx will mail it to me.
To the P.O. box I couldn’t include in my shipping info.
