Never scan them, only stuff from specials locker, 2D, tracked, delivered scanned etc. Never had or heard of anyone in the office being pulled about the chinese stuff. Unless they scanned in the they mail centre, they don't go against your compliance.

They might get scanned in at HWDC, afaik HWDC is highly automated

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.


Driving around to individual merchants isn’t exactly green either..

Back to your question.
No i dont bother scanning them and no manager has ever said anything about it,so i guess they dont register on the system.

Why do people "not bother"? What other parts of the job that you're paid to do do you "not bother" with?

If it has a barcode I scan it. It tales me one second.

It doesn't exactly take a lot of effort. And the Chinese ones very rarely require a signature now, just stuff from other foreign countries do.

If the PDA can scan it and it will register on the screen I will scan it. I was also under the impression that in terms of items from other countries if we don't scan it then RM don't receive any payment. I believe this is covered by something called the Universal Postal Union. As others have pointed out some countries such as China get virtually free postage but it would be worth scanning the ones from other countries such as the US, Australia, Germany etc as there would likely be revenue on those. For example I have seen items from Australia in the past with large postage amounts printed on them so if scanned RM would receive a share of that amount.
