"We decided to inject a little humor into a frustrating situation that sometimes disappoints our customers but affects a much broader community," commented L. Douglas Keeney, Chief Executive Officer of myPhotopipe.com, Inc. "When we see pictures of some of the packages our customers have received, we have to wonder why the carrier delivered them at all. This new web site was designed as an 'I'm-not-going-to-take-it-anymore' place to vent a little, and it allows our customer service personnel to vent some, as well."
myPhotopipe.com is an online photo processor of digital images. The Company has more than 19,900 customers and has been growing rapidly. As with all Internet retailers, a small but relatively constant percentage of its customers' packages are delivered bent or broken. Because the volume of packages has expanded at myPhotopipe.com, the number of damaged packages has increased, as well. "The Company considered a call for regulatory reform, but instead felt that a light touch might be more effective," continued Keeney. "We don't want to look like that crazy man on a street corner standing on a stump and waving his fist, so we launched this site and we'll let the community speak for itself."
This web site accepts advertising and features images and videos. "We like to see things pay for themselves and if this gains some revenue traction, all the better," said Keeney.
