I mailed a book this morning and this is what shows under "Details".    I am in PA !!!  I think the PBS postage is a bit confused, eh?

Suwanee, GA would be the location of PBS. It's sent the info to the USPS, but it's not been scanned yet. At least I think that's right... :)

I don't know because all of the other books I have mailed in the last week are still just sitting there with only the DC number showing...no info as being transmitted. And it is only with books I have mailed using PBS postage. The ones I sent using stamps.com are fine.

The book I mailed on September 4th using PBS postage says Suwanee, GA.   I think that must be the PBS location.

During the printable postage beta test, the first round of DC #s all said Suwanee, GA. Then they got changed to say our actual locations, but scans (and quick credits) weren't coming through.

The scan problem seems to be fixed, so maybe the problem was that they don't get the scans unless the location matches the payer. We pay PBS, and PBS actually pays for the postage, so maybe the originating location has to be theirs. (This is all wild speculation.)

Mine are coming up with the Suwanee, GA thing, too. Hopefully a book doesn't have to go to Georgia first when I'm only sending it across Minnesota. LOL
