in the US, we don't have to sign for any Singapore Post mail, or epacket with China Post or any mail from FT unless maybe DHL shipping..

in the end , it will be USPS and your regular mailman that will deliver it with no signature required..he will leave it at your door unless U request different...leave a note for him if U don't want him to leave it at the door, in case ya live in an apartment block and have theft concerns..

You have to sign for "Registered" Singapore mail (RQxxxxxxxxxSG), you don't have to sign for "regular" Singapore mail (LKxxxxxxxxxSG).

At least that's how mine have arrived from FT, the Registered even has a "Signature Required" notation on it

None given I read that in another thread. And I have a RQ tracking number. I'm not upset. It makes sense to go with the safe option for them.as far as registered and unregistered. I just wish I knew from the start. That the bottles would cause a problem. I missed that thread in all my searching before buying.

RQ is a faster service anyway, so you should take that as a free shipping upgrade.

If you aren't able to be home, or have someone else home to sign for it when they deliver, you can leave a note for your postal worker explaining a day or two before the package arrives. Then the day of the first delivery attempt they will leave you a pink slip to sign and date, then they'll redeliver on the next day once you leave that signed slip in the mail.

I've never signed for anything. orders over 250 USD may require a signature due to paypal seller protection if that applies to FT.

I have never had to sign for any FT packages other than RQ-SG. As NoneGiven2 stated, Signature Required is noted on the envelopes.

My recently received RQ-SG packages (split order) were worth approx. $25 and $5, so they weren't large, expensive orders.

The PO delivery lady knows me well (I even turned her on to e-cigs!), but I still had to go down to the lobby to sign for today's package. Maybe they're more lax in smaller cities or rural areas -- I have no idea.

My RQ-SG was around $30-35 I think, so not expensive at all. And has the Signature Required notation like I mentioned. I assume this is the main difference between Registered Singapore and regular Singapore options, aside from the shorter shipping route.

I'm in the middle of no where, and we know our mail delivery people very well too. We buy/sell on ebay, and often have packages coming in and pickup requests ect., so we talk to our drivers often. We've lived here for 10+ years without a single missing or stolen package too, so they didn't make me sign thinking someone might steal it, they're just following proper procedure.

I could see some workers in a busy city might let it slide, or really accidentally overlook it, but that would be unusual as it's their loss if they leave it and say you signed but didn't and then the package is lost/stolen. More likely to happen would be they're usual "Act like" they attempted, with or without actually attempting, and then just leave the pink slip for you to deal with.

They're usually very strict about that at USPS too, I've even asked about keeping a "Signature On-File" like I have with DHL, so I don't have to sign for packages that require it, and they said it's not possible with USPS, and that I could only sign in person that day or on the slips they leave for subsequent days after that first initial delivery attempt.

Sorry to go off topic here but...

NoneGiven2, I wish I could sell on EBay! I've got a ton of vintage stuff (including some expensive Fortuny fabric) that I'd love to sell, but I'm scared of fraud, etc. I occasionally sell things on Craigslist, but I only get pennies on the dollar for my quality stuff.
