Gotta love USPS and their web site programmers! While placing an order at usps.com recently, I diligently followed all of their instructions, particularly with respect to the required fields when setting up the account for billing purposes. I skipped the “nickname” field because it was not flagged as “required”. An asterisk was not shown next to the field. However, if you try to complete the page without creating a “Nickname” for the credit card, you will be prompted to enter a Nickname.
If the field isn’t shown as required then why do I have to fill it in? Did any one QA the development of the web site?
