On the ones I know will scan yes, however I know of people who don’t scan any and nothings ever said. Don’t forget some of them are signed for and there’s no way of knowing until you’ve scanned it though. I had a signed for with a value of 21p once. Ridiculous.

Some say untracked under the code , you scan them and they come up as sign for.

I was wondering this. I scan anyway just in case. Plus as mentioned above some can randomly require a signature.

The thing I don't understand is... why doesn't the pda let you deliver foreign parcels to neighbours? Not just signed for. Any. Even the worthless little Chinese packets!

these packets are discounted as they are classed as coming from 3rd world countries
its an absolute racket as rm only paid pennies to deliver
ask how much it costs us to send packet to china
rm should return every one as insufficient postage as they do with xmas cards etc here

I’m lucky if I can find the address on them let alone scanning one of the many barcodes they have!

I had one the other day. Looked at the description and it said toothbrush. Are people that lazy that they can't be bothered to go to a B&M and get 6 for a £1 :arrrghhh

I've noticed on eBay when you search by 'UK only' a lot of the results show a vague location at the top of the page ('London, UK'. Or even just 'UK'). If you look all the way at the bottom it almost always list a business address in Shenzhen. So I could imagine more than a few people just see the free postage offer without realising the item is in China and will take a month by sea to arrive.

I never understand posties that moan about people buying items off the internet. Why would:

A) a person move for a toothbrush if they don’t have to; and
B) not buy one that exactly matches what they want (eg nice pink one with daughters name on) and instead move and travel to get whatever one happens to be stocked in a store?

I buy all sorts off the net and don’t feel one shred of “guilt” towards the postie AT ALL.

Obviously you've never heard of your carbon footprint.
