I want to write to say THANK YOU for Fulfilling our & customer orders through very perilous, covid & crazy times.
HOLD ON, STAND UP & RESIST... CHANGE is coming.
I am appreciative that I can have my order sent by USPS US Postal Service.
STAND UP to SUPPORT & REFORM USPS.
Thank You for being an Indie... Independent player in a Big Tech $6T dominated economy.
HOLDFAST to our independent way. We need a DIVERSE & CREATIVE marketplace.
STAND UP to RESIST AMZN, ALPHABET & FB TAKEOVERS of everything!
I am writing bc WAITING some 6 weeks for my PUZZLE to deliver was frustrating.
Tho I have come to my senses and realize it is NOT YOUR FAULT.
While the USPS is in perilous times, and covid pandemic;
I now think that both shutdowns are driven by the BIG TECH, AI world.
They are NOT originating content or creative.
They may have algorithms that spin and new technologies to deliver.
They MIMIC what we artist, creatives, authors & photographers create.
So if it is of any help, STAND UP & WAIT!
SUPPORT USPS & INDIES.
@Mike- I was not aware that FAA platform uses AMZN servers.
My writing is that while I am frustrated that orders did not receive even my own orders in a timely manner in Nov-Jan... That is actually was NOT FAA fault. It is a shutdown of USPS US Postal Service Priority Delivery. Meanwhile AMZN Fleets are encircling the community. We need a diverse mktplace!
I think independent biz needs to hear that fulfillment of orders is APPRECIATED.
And that we need to STAND & RESIST companies trying to derail the INDIE economies.
Don't forget that shipping wait times are a result of millions and millions more online orders than in past years. The logistic companies are understaffed, overwhelmed, and not prepared for the sudden increase in packages.
You do realize of course that lots of "indies" sell through Amazon and other big outlets.
@Chuck... And I am most certainly aware the need for a DIVERSE & OPEN MARKETPLACE.
Big Tech $6T is trying to dominate, surpass the USPS. I have a BS Marketing & Grad Cert Digi Pub...
I have been involved in physical distribution & logistics since Best products.
I've been through EVERY tech disruption since the 80s. I've never seen a more chaotic time.
The USPS was happily supporting sm biz w/ priority mail until AMZN fleets are taking over our neighborhoods.
HaHaHa to the woes of big tech & their "smart" systems!
Do NOT undermine our US Infrastructure, the destroy Fed Property!
Indies are POPULATED CONTENT that Big Tech is CAPITALIZING on our backs!
A LOT of us are spinning, working it, til our fingers drop off... with very little gain.
Case in pt, I sold books before my printer got swallowed up in the AMZN vortez.
Now we are seeing what is happening to the USPS, oh good ole AMZN wants us to stop using USPS.
And wondering what will happen to WF, will it even have as good produce as W*M now?
My INTENTION FOR WRITING was for THOSE OF US CREATIVE & HARD WORKING ARTIST
that did NOT receive TIMELY DELIVERY of our own Photo Cards, Gifts & Puzzles
that it was NOT FAA Fulfillment delays & issues; it was SHIPPING... It was THWARTING.
It is a HUGE GIGANTIC SCALE PROBLEM.
