I haven't ever encountered that, but I am going to guess the MSC will not consider the package as rejected since it had nothing to do with the contents of the package. They will probably want you to use a regular box without paper and reshop the location. Let us know what they say.
If a re-shop is needed, I wonder if that means new pay and new re-imbursement would be given?
Agreed. I HAVE used brown paper on top of boxes for whatever reason. And I make absolutely sure, like KathyG stated, to tape up EVERY seam and corner and anywhere else that I think the brown paper could get ripped. I've never had one refused so far, be it for a shop or personal shipping. Now these have all been at USPS facilities...I have no experience shipping packages with brown paper at any other sort of shipping facility.@KathyG wrote:
