If you are having trouble getting your shipments to import, please see our troubleshooting for imports from connected stores or the Chit Chats CSV.

Here are some of the most common reasons why you may be unable to buy postage or pay for your Chit Chats shipment. 

Shipment Incomplete

If your shipment is missing any important details, before you can pay for your shipment you will need to edit your shipment to update this information. If you are importing multiple shipments you can update the details all at once by using our bulk editing or preset tools.

Postage Rate Expired

You may be prevented from paying for your shipment if the postage rate has expired. This typically happens when you are trying to pay for a shipment that was created some time ago.

Not Enough Credits

In order to buy postage on the Chit Chats platform, you must have enough available credit to cover your unpaid fees. If you don’t have enough credits to pay for your shipments, add credits to your account with a payment method or set up an auto reload so you don’t have to worry about running out of credits.

No Rates Errors

In some cases you may not see your preferred postage type (e.g. Canadian shipping) or an error occurs when you click on ‘Pay for Shipments’. This may be caused by a few different reasons:

Incompatible Shipment Details

Some shipment details may limit the postage types available to you. For example, Chit Chats Insurance and the Asendia Priority Tracked service is not available for shipments marked as gifts. Check that you are using compatible package and postage type combinations for your shipments.

Invalid Weight or Dimensions

You may not be able to buy the postage type that you want because you have not entered the weight or dimensions of your shipment or they are either too small or too large for your desired service. Check that your shipment is within the weight and dimensional limits for your postage type.

Invalid Address Information

It is your responsibility to verify that you are using the correct address information for your shipment. Our address verification tools may catch some, but not all errors. 

Make sure that your address does not contain invalid characters. Only Latin characters should be used. Sometimes copying and pasting addresses can carry over invalid space characters without your knowledge. If you suspect that this may have happened, please try recreating your shipment by typing in the address information manually instead.

You should also be mindful of address field character limits with long addresses. For Asendia shipments, each address line field must not exceed 30 characters. 

Service Unavailable

We do our best to inform our clients of all known service interruptions with updates to our status site. However, from time to time, a partner carrier may have to suspend service to a particular country or a postage option may be unavailable.
