Default USPS- Tracking

Have you guys ever had an issue with USPS MisPlacing a package or not posting Tracking Info.?

Im getting worried about a package I dropped off early this week, and Still USPS show no info on the tracking number.

I know the buyer is getting pretty worried by now.

Pay for more than the infonotice number.

Then Usps tracking is great.

Use the cheap "tracking" and it tells you when it was delivered....a day later.

Delivery confirmation is just that. Confirmation it was delivered. no stop-by-stop tracking.

ship priority with tracking for the extra 1.50 and get stop by stop tracking...not that it matters. Any USPS Shipping takes under 7 days aside from parcel post.

Not necessarily, I've always had good luck with Usps. Here's a screenshot from the last package I sent out. Big box, Parcel Post, Delivery Confirmation for tracking...

Yeah I was going to say, USPS Delivery Confirmation works well if the employee decides they want to scan it when it comes through their facility.

could be worse though, pay for ups and have packages thrown around, beat up, left on your porch (ultimately ending with them being stolen) or (NO joke) the ups driver stands at teh door of his truck and throws the package at your house (which i have seen a ups driver do this with my own eyes and coplaining didnt do squat because he still works there in fact i amin a bind with a xship rma on my pc ram because the driver apparently left it on the porch and it ended up stolen)

To say nothing of the fact I can WALK most places in the US faster than UPS can deliver from there. Can you say sloooooooooooooooooooooow?

USPS is pretty much all I'll do, and the UPS depot is actually a shade closer to me. Once you get used to the idea that Delivery Confirmation is what it is you're golden.
