You're paying a handling charge which pays for the time taken faffing about with post that has been sent underpaid, as well as recouping the loss of revenue. The sender should be the one paying, but that would never happen, harsh reality says that the person who wants the item gets held to ransom. You do have the option of seeing the item (although you can't open it) and deciding whether you want to pay or not. In which case it would be sent back. Whether it gets re-sent is down to you and the sender.User76 said:Are you a postman? If so, could you explain why 24p under payment results in me not getting my delivery, and having to pay £1.24 to pick it up Could I have it returned to sender, then re-mailed with the correct postage, thus only paying 24p charges???
Er, pass! I suspect they will just get it returned to them with a little red undeliverable label on with the 'insufficient postage' box ticked. It would be fairer to tax them for the error but sadly that would probably prove too expensive and difficult to administer.User76 said:If I sent it back would the original sender get charged 48p, 24p for the original error and 24p on the way back?
