@buyinginsecret The FedEx dropoff locations require ID as well, does the regular shipping option require a phone number? I don't think it does, but it's been awhile since I actually input information.
If it doesn't require a phone number to use regular shipping, packages arrive in a unbranded generic brown box, so no one would know what lewd items you'd be acquiring unless they opened your mail without your consent (which is a federal offense in the U.S)
If you absolutely need a phone number you could purchase a cheapo like $20 phone and a cheap prepaid simcard with cash.
There's also a lot of services online which allow you to pay for or acquire for free cheap disposable phone numbers that would work for such a situation.
@Jonarby Sadly it looks like the regular shipping option does "require" a phone number. But i'm very tempted to just put 000-000-0000. I'll see what support thinks about it, whenever they get back to me.
@buyinginsecret Whenever making a purchase through Paypal which "requires" a phone number I just put in (my area code)-000-0001 and it works, but if you don't put a valid area code they don't let you go through.
I will say I've never had TD or FedEx call me, so you probably could get away with putting something like (areacode)-000-0001.
Let me know what support tells you I'd be interested as well. I wish TD had better signup options for privacy (had to make my account on a different browser so I could pass the stupid Anti-Privacy ReCaptcha. Wish they'd use more privacy friendly HCaptcha.) But I haven't gotten any more ReCaptchas when logging in, just when registering so that was more of a 1 time annoyance.
@Jonarby Here is first message from little while ago.
The information is passed to FedEx so we aren't sure what happens if they call and the number is not operational.
You may put in an obviously not real number like all zeros but you would have to make sure you monitor the tracking number and pick the package up before any issue arise.
We aren't sure if they will send an email notification if the phone number looks to be not operational either.
For international shipments, the package may require duty or tax before delivery.
You would have to make sure you monitor the tracking number if they need the duty and tax paid before delivery.
(any duty and tax can be paid online with the carrier)
P.S. It doesn't seem that I can delete or edit my replies. Whats with that?
@buyinginsecret I think it just means it's best to make sure the carrier can contact you the more information the better in case the carrier need to get a hold of you? wait..why don't you have a phone number?
@buyinginsecret Deleting and editing replies is not a feature that's available at the moment unfortunately.
I've never had FedEx call me for a package delivery and my apartment complex is very difficult to get into (you need someone to let you in or you need a physical key) so I specifically tell them to call me if there's any issues. I'd imagine they wouldn't call you either, especially if your place isn't difficult to get to.
I'd say it'd be safe to give a totally fake number, but make sure to keep an eye on tracking (I always sign up for email notification alerts.) Obviously I'm not sure and I'm not you, but that's just what I'd do.
