Shipping receipt estimates need to be updated

Recommended Posts

With current USPS/UPS/Fedex delivery schedules, Atomic Avenue is being generous on the expected receipt date for orders.  For instance, had an order received this afternoon (9/3) for 26 books @ around $90 over 8 pounds.  AA has an expected receipt time of 9/6 - 9/10.  The absolute *earliest* I could get them delivered with USPS is 9/10 with Parcel Select, 9/8 with Priority Mail, and Priority Express on 9/6 at over $70 shipping cost.  And those are estimates.  USPS right now for me has been 1-3 days later than those estimates, FYI.

Unfortunately, there are customers who see those dates and start expecting their packages on the first date listed, and become irate if the package isn't there by the last date listed.  This is simply out of a seller's control right now with all the Covid-19 and USPS turmoil.  I would like to see AA adjust times by at least 2 days - especially when spanning a weekend.
