    That's gotta be a "First" for "Herpes".

    Fortunately though there is a return address on the parcel, so I could contact the sender.

    I'm pleased to say that the other week, the intended recipient actually called round with the money . Turns out it was intended for number seventy-something.

    Well I got Herpe'd some weeks back....

    Returned some items to Amazon via a Local McColl's shop on the 12/03/19 & Hermes were the Courier doing the pickup.

    Amazon received the return @ their Holdings Address on the 26/03/19.... Two frickin weeks dammit....

    I could have strapped it to the back of a Stray Dog & probably got a quicker result.

    Meh!

    That is some delay. My only guess is such a company send returns back via palette and it only gets shipped once a full palette is filled. You see Amazon returns pallets for sale online because Amazon don't actually want the hassle of processing the items.

    Not entirely sure that's correct Harrison....It certainly wasn't a Pallet @ the McColl's shop, that's for sure.

    I've sent two returns to Amazon since & used Royal Fail, ....cough..... Mail.....

    Dropped off @ 11.40am on the way to work & by 2.30pm, had an Email from Amazon saying my refund was in process.

    Two day's later, I had another Email saying they had received my return & had refunded my account. - The money showed 3 day's later!

    Impressive.

    Really? Seems counterintuitive at first but I guess keeping happy and returning customers is more valuable than time spent (therefore wage cost) on processing minor things.

    Still, what a crazy world we live in sometimes, eh?

    If you look on YouTube there are some whom make a living from these return palettes and film unboxing them. There is a lot of junk included but these people seem to sell it at places like car boots and market stalls so work involved to get their money back.

    I've seen quite a few 'Recommended' videos crop up on YouTube with titles like "Amazon returns pallet unboxing". Don't think I've ever watched one, but I have seen such pallets for sale.

    I can certainly understand why they would want to just get rid of low-value returns like that.

    Exactly, especially if the packaging has been broken, opened or items used. More hassle than the amount they could hope to get reselling as open box or B grade as they would need to employ someone to check, repackage, write reports etc.
