This is a very late post, but wanted to inform others of what I do with my packages. I have a large Plastic Tote with Lid that I have placed upon my deck at my front door. When I am making out a shipping label, there is an instruction box for your postman. I just simply state: Front South Door, inside Plastic Tote on Deck. Then I walk just a few steps to my postal box out front in the yard and raise the red flag to signal him that I have a letter/package to pick up even though I've already emailed him from the Click/Ship website thru Pay Pal. When it's raining outside, I have simply placed a large plastic bag over the entire tote to keep it dry. He removes the bag, lifts the lid to the tote, removes my packages and places the large bag then inside of the tote. Works beautifully for me and him. He's never missed a package yet!
