I'm hoping you experts can answer my question.

I ordered a DVD set from Amazon.  My mail carrier delivered the box.  It was the wrong set, so I needed to return it to Amazon.  Using their mailing label, I repacked the box and took it to the post office to send.  They would not take it and said I had to take it to a UPS center.

Why could the USPS deliver the box, but not send it back?

because they got paid to deliver the box, but the return label was a UPS label, so USPS wouldn't get paid to return it.

Thanks for your replies.  I didn't mind taking it to UPS, but until Brandy explained the difference in the labels, I didn't know why.
