Priority Mail Express
Priority Mail Express labels you buy on Pirate Ship come with date-certain, postage-refund guarantees.
If your shipment isn’t delivered by the guaranteed date, we can help you get that postage cost refunded! Just use the chat on the bottom right of this screen, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the tracking number to get that process started.
Note: Delivery guarantee refunds cannot be processed until the package is marked as Delivered.
Also, when shipping Priority Mail Express packages, make sure that you drop your packages off on the same date that your label shows (your Ship Date). In order for USPS to honor the refund guarantee, your Ship Date and the Acceptance Date when USPS scans the package must match.

A note on USPS Service Commitments
As we said in the above section, it's crucial that you drop your package off on the same date that your label shows. You should also aim to drop off your package at your local Post Office sooner in the day rather than later 😉 This is because USPS may adjust your service commitment cutoff times based on when they first accept your Priority Express package.
If your package is scanned in and accepted after a certain time of day, USPS may extend their service commitment to one day after you expect your package to be delivered...and you may be denied a guaranteed refund if you submit a claim for one 🙈
To see the service commitment times for your shipment, enter your info into the USPS Service Commitments calculator.
Some states & US Territories don't offer refunds for late PME packages
Unfortunately, money-back guarantees for PME shipments don't apply if the package is sent to or from the following locations:
The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
The Republic of Palau
The Republic of the Marshall Islands
The Federated States of Micronesia
Priority Mail Express International
While Priority Mail Express labels come with a money-back guarantee, USPS only offers money-back guarantees for Priority Mail Express International to specific countries if you buy the label at the Post Office with Retail Pricing. That means no Priority Mail Express International labels you purchase on Pirate Ship comes with the same guaranteed delivery speeds, and we're not able to process those refunds 😥
If the package isn’t marked as Delivered and is lost in transit, the money-back delivery speed guarantee no longer applies, and you'll have to file an insurance claim instead to recover the cost of the postage. Priority Mail Express comes with $100 of insurance from USPS, and Priority Mail Express International comes with $200 of insurance.
