So the PayPal Multi Order shipping tool is not working right now. It wasn’t working yesterday when I tried, but this is worse. Oh much much worse. So bad that I want to scream. I tried 4 times to print those m-effin labels. No dice. I go back to my account to try it again and I see 4 debits from my account for $152 each. $152 x 4 = $608. The USPS just ripped off $608 from me.
I get on the phone to call PayPal. I get lady-who-doesn’t-speak-English and try to explain the situation. But of course I’m not the trusty husband (who is out of town today) so she can’t access the account. I finally get to the point where I can give her the correct info so she can access the account and she disconnects us. Or the phone line from here to India is just. that. great.
So I call back. I get girl-whose-name-really-isn’t-Joy and I pose as the trusty husband. Sure my name’s Derek. She tells me that there is a known problem with the Multi Order shipping tool and a refund should come from the USPS within 21 days. WTF!? 21 DAYS. I then explain to girl-whose-name-really-isn’t-Joy that I have $152 in shipping to pay, the post man is coming today, and I have $375 of the original $808 to give to someone next week. NEXT WEEK! 21 days isn’t going to cut it sistah.
Girl-whose-name-really-isn’t-Joy advises me to print the labels from the USPS directly and that she will put in a request to get my money back sooner. GREEEAAATTTT. Now I have to re-enter every last order into the USPS system and print the labels individually. FECK.
