I shop online all the time and have received packages from all the delivery services (DHL, FEDEX, USPS, SingPost, vPost, etc). For SingPost/VPost, you can reroute the package to the closest post office or request for re-delivery at a specific time slot (usually). Nowadays, I get everything sent to my husband's office. There is a reception there, hence no excuse for them to simply leave a note.

That said, I've done both multiple times at Singpost and no matter the queue length or number of available agents, I am always in and out in much less time when sending a parcel than sending money. Also, the remittance desk will take people from the other lines when their queue is empty.

sadly, the parcel collection (for those undelivered packages /letters etc.) isn't that much of a priority vs parcel booking !!! :)

I had the same problem. The postman didn't even bother to ring the bell and just leave a note for my registered article in the postbox to self-collect at PostOffice.
