  My last three orders from three alleged people have all asked that packing slips
not be included in orders.

I don’t regularly include them anyway. But I’ve never received this request before,
and now have gotten it three times in a row.

Statistically it’s likely to happen eventually with multiple in a row. Likely
just a drop shipper or Christmas gifts so nothing to worry about

Hello fellow BrickLink users,
I hope some of you might be able to give me some advice or share some experience.

I'm a seller on BrickLink for quite some time. I'm based in the EU.
I recently shipped a tracked letter (small parcel) using PostNL (The Netherlands)
to the US (Columbia, SC).

The tracking code got transferred to USPS, so I can continue tracking there.

Two problems.
1. The buyer says I didn't use the correct address and the parcel is back
on it's way to my address.

I did use his address correctly, PostNL just printed it differently on the shipping
label, but all the info is there.
I will not disclose the actual address, but I give you how the buyer had it in
BrickLink and how it apppeared on the label.

John Doe
678 High St
Apt 123
Columbia
SC 29201
USA

The shipping label printed like this:

John Doe
High St 678-APT 123
SC
29201 Columbia
USA

Is it true these differences will make the item un-deliverable for USPS?

2. Tracking going in loops ...
This is the part where it really gets strange.
On the USPS tracking site, I see (roughly) these evolutions:

Nov 5: Acceptance The Netherlands
Nov 6-17: no updates, except "Inboud for customs"
Nov 18: Processed Through Facility (ISC Miami FL USPS)
Nov 22: Arrived at USPS Regional Facility (MIAMI FL INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION
CENTER)
Nov 23: Departed USPS Regional Facility (MIAMI FL INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION
CENTER)
Nov 23: Arrived at USPS Regional Facility (OPA LOCKA FL DISTRIBUTION CENTER)
I continue just putting the dates and the regions:
Nov 24: Opa Locka FL
Nov 24: Columbia SC
Nov 26: Bethune SC
Nov 26: Columbia SC
Nov 28: Miami FL
Nov 29: Opa Locka FL
Nov 29: Columbia SC
Dec 1: Miami FL
Dec 2: Opa Locka FL
Dec 4: Atlanta GA
Dec 4: Columbia SC
Dec 6: Miami FL

As a European and as the sender, I have little to no ways to contact USPS. There
are forms online, but they are targeted towards the receiver and towards US citizens.
Besides, I don't have the phone number of the receiver, which I need to provide.

The buyer is demanding his money back (order value approx $100). I understand
his side, but given the situation, it's clear it's still "in transit
somewhere" with no way in telling what is going on. I have no problem in giving
full refunds when it's clear the parcel is returned (in my hands) or is definitely
lost (usually without tracking).

I requested the buyer (US Citizen) to contact USPS with the tracking number and
request more info. I also advised him to contact the local postal office, in
the event his address would indeed be misread (which I doubt) on the package,
they might hold him for him to pick up.



Any thoughts on these strange events?

It just shows that instruction sheets from multiples of small modern sets are
essentially worthless.

Exactly, most, if not all of that would have hit our recycling bins

Please make changes to the following inventory:
 
Set No: 6478  Name: Fire Fighters' HQ
* 
6478-1 (Inv) Fire Fighters' HQ
219 Parts, 4 Minifigures, 2000
Sets: Town: Town Jr.: Fire

* Change 2 Part Red {30237 Brick, Modified 1 x 2 with Clip (Vertical Grip) (Undetermined Type) to 30237a Brick, Modified 1 x 2 with Split U Clip Thick (Vertical Grip)}

Comments from Submitter:
I recently parted out this set and sold 2 red pieces. The remarks on the order confirm set 6478. I don't have the order picture on my phone. It is on an iPad at home. I have asked the customer to confirm, but I never considered 30237 an umbrella part. I would have corrected the inventory if it had 30237b in it.
