215.2 Place of Mailing

215.21 Items Eligible for Deposit or Pickup

Global Express Guaranteed items may be deposited through any of the following methods at, through, or offered by a participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility, provided postage is paid by a method other than the use of postage stamps:

  1. In a private mailbox bearing a return address that matches the address at the point of pick up, when the customer or business is known to reside or do business at that location.
  2. Through Pickup on Demand service.
  3. Through Package Pickup service.
  4. At a Postal Service retail counter.
  5. Into a Postal Service lobby drop.
  6. In a collection box.
  7. At a Contract Postal Unit (CPU).
  8. At a USPS Approved Shipper location.

Note: Global Express Guaranteed items weighing 13 ounces or less and bearing only postage stamps may also be deposited through the aforementioned methods.

215.22 Items Not Eligible for Deposit or Pickup

Customers must present Global Express Guaranteed items weighing more than 13 ounces and bearing only postage stamps as postage to an employee at a participating Global Express Guaranteed Post Office facility retail service counter. Deposit and pickup methods listed in 215.21 are prohibited. The Postal Service will return improperly presented items to the sender for proper entry and acceptance.

215.23 Items Paid With a Permit Imprint

Mailers who enter volume mailings paid with a permit imprint under 213.8 must enter such items through a business mail entry unit (BMEU) or, when authorized by the district BMEU manager, through a detached mail unit (DMU) at a mailer’s plant.

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 Package 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. There is a single charge for Pickup On Demand service (see Notice 123, Price List), 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. Priority Mail Express International items.
  3. Priority Mail International items.
  4. First-Class Package International Service items.
  5. Priority Mail Express items.
  6. Priority Mail items.
  7. Package Services items.

215.4 Package 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 507.7; for more information, also visit the online site at usps.com/pickup.
