    Hello guys. I get packages delivered to me all the time, so I decided to give this online pickup a try. I opened a UPS account and printed two labels for rather large packages and scheduled pickup. I've printed both labels. When I opened my account, it didn't ask me for a credit card. It says my shipment has been processed and it says the shipping and pickup charges were charged to my shippers account. How does this work? Do I have to pay the UPS guy up front when he picks up the packages or do they send me a billing invoice after it's been delivered? My shipping charges for the two packages total over $250

    Great question! Welcome to BrownCafe. My best guess is you will be billed (or CC charged) once the packages have been delivered.

    When you opened the account you were required to provide a form of payment.

    UPS will electronically bill the form of payment that your provided.

    The driver would prefer if you didn't print any labels. Just call in a pickup and when the driver gets there, be unprepared and clueless.

    My favorite....I don't know where it's going. I thought YOU did.
  12. Or what time are you going to deliver this package...... 3 states away!
  13. This doesn't bother me near as much as when they don't have a ups shipping label. Not sure why the USPS labels & barcodes look so similar to ours. The USPS labels need their red, white, & blue logo on them. Cheap calksuckers. Guess you could say the same about ours.
  14. That happens all of the time. Then they don't believe you when you say,I can't take that package.

    You now have an account number and will be billed the weekend after the packages get delivered.

    Back to your regular programming.

    werenotthepostoffice deep down inside I really do not care

    It cuts that step of cutting open the package when they ask"do you have tape?"
