    What’s the pay.

    It might be a nice commercial using a real USPS employee, but I don’t know what all the hurrah and benefits to the customer this upgraded door-to-door tracking would be.

    TMI, in my opinion. A lot of people on my route aren’t even home to receive their packages, so I leave them in their mailbox or on their porch where they will find them later. I guess they could access their computer at work to take a peek to see where it’s at… IF… it’s OK with their boss or they don’t get caught.

    Actually, in this day and age of “free shipping,” it’s the seller who makes the call on what shipping service will be used, and not the customer who will receive it. Most often, it’s the cheapest way possible.

    If I were composing the ad copy to tout the benefits of this upgraded tracking, I’d be focusing on the businesses who would be shipping items to their customers. Peace-of-mind would be the main appeal I guess. A “Best tracking in the business. Period.” kind of campaign.

    However, isn’t it a disappointment when the tracking shows the package will not arrive on its estimated delivery date, and it’s actually delivered one or more days later?
