215.2 Place of Mailing

215.21 Items Paid With Methods Other Than Postage Stamps

Global Express Guaranteed shipments paid with online postage, postage meters, or information-based indicia (IBI) may be deposited by one of the following methods:

  1. At a retail counter of any participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility.
  2. Through Pickup on Demand service (see 215.3).
  3. Through Carrier Pickup service (see 215.4).
  4. In a Postal Service Express Mail collection box served by a participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility.
215.22 Items Weighing 13 Ounces or Less and Paid With Postage Stamps

Global Express Guaranteed shipments weighing 13 ounces or less and bearing only postage stamps may be deposited by one of the following methods:

  1. At a retail counter of any participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility.
  2. Through Pickup on Demand service (see 215.3).
  3. Through Carrier Pickup service (see 215.4).
  4. In a Postal Service Express Mail collection box served by a participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility.
215.23 Items Weighing More Than 13 Ounces and Paid With Postage Stamps

A customer may not deposit a Global Express Guaranteed item weighing more than 13 ounces and bearing only postage stamps into a collection box, Postal Service lobby drop, Automated Postal Center (APC) drop, or customer mailbox, or at a Postal Service dock or other unattended location. In addition, these mailpieces are precluded from Pickup on Demand service under 215.3 and Carrier Pickup service under 215.4. Customers must present such items to an employee at a Post Office retail service counter. The Postal Service will return improperly presented items to the sender for proper entry and acceptance.

215.24 Acceptance of Shipments

For purposes of computing the delivery guarantee, Postal Service acceptance of a Global Express Guaranteed shipment occurs when it is received and scanned at a participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility. Collection box deposit and Carrier Pickup service do not constitute Postal Service acceptance of a Global Express Guaranteed shipment. Acceptance occurs when the shipment is brought back to the Post Office facility and the acceptance office performs a retail system scan and verifies the weight, dimensions, and postage of the shipment. For items paid with Click-N-Ship service, the customer will receive an e-mail verification of the acceptance date, time, and weight, as well as a verification of the amount of postage applicable for the shipment.

Note: Customers paying postage online must enter their shipment via any of the authorized methods outlined in 215.21 within 24 hours of the time when the label is printed, or the transaction will be void.

215.3 Pickup On Demand Service

Subject to the standards in 215.2, Pickup On Demand service is available for Global Express Guaranteed items. The charge for Pickup On Demand service is $15.30, regardless of the number of items scheduled for pickup. A pickup can include any or all of the following items:

  1. Global Express Guaranteed items.
  2. Express Mail International items.
  3. Priority Mail International items.
  4. Express Mail items.
  5. Priority Mail items.
  6. Package Services items.

215.4 Carrier Pickup Service

No pickup fee is charged when a Global Express Guaranteed item or items are picked up during a letter carrier’s regular delivery stop or during a scheduled stop made to collect other mail not subject to a pickup fee. Pickup service is provided in accordance with the information in DMM 507.6; for more information, also visit the online site at usps.com/pickup.
