Fedex SmartPost is FartPost® P'ew

Fedex SmartPost is FartPost®. It really stinks. Order placed 6/3/2021 from WYZE. My account page advises delivery of my package is ground shipping (4-7 Business Days) today is 6/16/2021, package still not delivered, at Ellenwood, GA. I have spent hundreds of dollars with you, WYZE. You are doing a tremendous disservice to your customers using FedEx Smarpost. You are a major company with a tremendous amount of leverage,f or you and your customers to be treated in this manner by FedEx and the USPS is disrespectful. At best you owe us all an apology allowing us, which you state in writing, to believe our packages will arrive in 4-7 Business Days. Yes, to your benefit you will say you have no control how Fedex and the USPS conduct their affairs. However, there are plenty of us telling you FedexSmartpost takes 3-4+ weeks to recieve your packages. Change the way you ship, or otherwise your brand will forever be tarnished for your lack and failure of Marketing Strategy and it’s failure of Customer Service for your lack of concern when your customers recieve your products ridiculously past due and late whether they spent $35 or $100’s. Seriously WYZE, this could ruin your business. Change your Business Plan NOW, TODAY, and flush FedEx SmartPost which is smelly FartPost® down the toilet where it belongs.

And it’s not unique to Wyze. FedEx Smartpost sucks everywhere. For example, ZAGG, the screen protector company, shipped a ZAGG screen to me from Michigan on June 1st. It arrived in Ellenwood, Georgia, the Black Hole of Shipping, on June 4th. It allegedly left Ellenwood on June 4th as well.

Today is June 16th, and it’s nowhere to be found. Oh, it’ll arrive…eventually. Just as the Wyze products arrive…eventually. It’s been two weeks so far. Plain ol’ USPS could’ve had it here in 3 days.

Why any online merchant uses FedEx Smartpost is beyond me. It’s a godawful service, and it besmirches the reputation of every merchant who uses it.

You are correct, its not unique to Wyze. But once Wyze knows its terrible, and customers complain - then take steps to correct the method. I’ve begged them not to ship FedEx Smartpost. They simply shrug and continue. This is not a new issue. Wyze has now been doing this method for years and appears to not hear our complaints.

I had the same thing happen to my shipment with the wyze vacuum. Ellenwood Ga → out for delivery → back to Ellenwood Ga → 1 week later → out for delivery

Funny thing happened to the fedex guy (special person), the truck backed off my very steep driveway and skidded into a tree. He could not back up from the tree (peg-leg rear end). I had to pull him out with my f150. No damage to fedex truck.

I tracked my shipment via the Wyze option in the website. Showed the package arrived at Chino, CA and sat there 11 days before it moved. I used their “remarks” section and gave them plenty of info and details asking why? Not a peep back from them . And more than once. FedEx Smart posts customer service is a match sometimes for Wyze customer service.

I agree wholeheartedly. I didn’t mean to suggest or imply that because FedEx Smartpost stinks on hot ice everywhere, that it’s not an issue with Wyze.

It absolutely is a serious issue with Wyze, IMO, and I’ve started at least one thread here detailing just how horrible Smartpost is, and how that fact degrades Wyze’s reputation.

My next thread will be simple. I am going to ask them Why. “Why do you use FedEx Smartpost?” I am genuinely curious to know what metrics they used, and continue to use, to justify using arguably the worst shipping system in America.

I think I know why they use FexEx Smartpost. I think Wyze at some of their drop shipment locations are using FedEx as logistics manager, drop shipment manager, and shipment carrier. Wyze has lost control of what method FexEx actually uses becaues FedEx gets paid by piece and natually save pennies when they use FedEx ground and USPS parcel post combined. Wyze can’t influence the method interal to FedEx, so they say nothing to customers. Maybe I am not right. But I have seen some of my FedEx Smartpost return address are a FedEx facility location, not a Wyze address. If I am wrong, anyone have a better explanation, please.

But when we get down explanations - I really don’t care why they send to me FedEx Smartpost, - I want them to stop doing it and use USPS.

My wyze car is suppose to be here today, but it is stuck in Ellenwood GA. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

That is VERY fast. Sounds like it may be a drop shipment - likely from a FedEx facility. Because they only started shipping the car on the 15th and this is just 17th. That’s pretty quick if already near you.

I won’t get mine until mid July, because of FedEx Smartpost.

Thank you for your reply towel kingdom. I did, crickets… That is why I came here. It is the only way I can inform them as well as others of their horrendous Customer Service in regards of shipment of their products when purchased directly from them. Very happy with their products, not their choice on how they ship them to me. 17 days in transit from point A to point B. WYZE’s decision to use FedEx SmartPost to ship their products is not a smart move for their customers.

Thank you Brlepage for your reply. I recieved confirmations for my 3 orders and tracking numbers for the camera’s that I ordered. I’d recieve emails stating my delivery would be the next day only to have the next day come and no delivery. The delivery would be pushed back a day. This happened on numerous occasions. Eventually my packages arrived, 17 days total shipment time. Not order time, time the shipper had possession of the packages. Totally unacceptable that WYZE continues to use FedEx SmartPost to ship packages purchase through their online store.
