Wrong postcode - Any posties out there?

Found 21st Jun 2007
I ordered a router adapter from ebuyer and opted to get it delivered to my work. I accidentally put my home postcode instead of my works postcode so the delivery address was wrong. To make matters worse my home postcode starts "SK" and my work postcode starts "WA".

The parcel should have been delivered earlier this week but hasn't arrived. Should I wait a little longer or contact the post office (if so, the one near my home, or near my work)?

I suspect it will be returned back to ebuyer. You have a totally different postcode area for the Sorting Office to get the right one.
You could try and phone both Sorting Offices and explain, but it could be too late. I don't suppose you have a RD Number for it?

Thanks for the quick reply.

No RD number, It's was sent by first class. When I check the delivery status it says
"This order will be delivered by Citylink"??? But my email says Royal Mail first class. I'll see if I can locate it by calling the sorting offices.

In that case, I'd phone ebuyer and ask how it was dispatched. If they used City-Link that will be much better for you, because it will be returned to ebuyer a lot quicker. The RM takes around three weeks to 'Return to Sender', :x :x
