How to Place Special, or Photo Request?

As part of services, you can choose from services like Special, and Photo Requests. On the following lines, we explain to you what is each request useful for and how to submit it.

⭐️ What is a ‘Special Request’?

Special Request can be almost anything that is related to actions with a package. For example, we can check the package content for you if there is no damage, return the package to the seller, scan the documents inside, or divide the package into multiple packages to meet USPS/Planet Mail size & weight restrictions.
We can also repack your package into the smallest possible size. In fact, some sellers pack products in unnecessarily huge boxes, making shipping costs more expensive. Look at the picture below, we can prevent this!

The price for a Special Request is $5. This fee is flat, this means you can request checking package contents and removing invoices in one request.

? What is a ‘Photo Request’?

You get 2 free pictures of the package when we receive it (picture of the package + shipping label). However, we can take more pictures for you, including the content of the package. When you buy shoes, for example, you’ll be sure you don’t buy 2 left shoes.

Additional pictures can be requested by you in advance (Pre-order Photo Request) or once the package is in your account (Manually Photo Request). The pricing is the following:

$2 for 3 general photos / $5 for 10 detailed photos
$1 for 3 general photos / $2 for 10 detailed photos
