Default has anyone esle been having problems with usps selivery confermation

I have many packages both coming and going, and they all say the same thing they said 3 days ago, normal is says when it leaves a city or when it arrives in a city.

hmm, maybe you should try using "Delivery Confirmation" instead of "selivery confermation" ??

Just Received,And Shipped via USPS........

Always send "Priority".....you can Track(not Online) by calling them and They will tell you where it is...

With Selivery Confermation........LOL!...someone must sign for it....


I don't ship that way.....Priority usually arrives where it is supposed too be in 3 day's.....
I have never had a problem with them!

Normally, no it doesn't say that at all. The USPS tracking isn't nearly as good as the UPS which does fill in the blanks a little better. Normally the best you'll get out of the USPS site is that the package has been delivered.

I've had USPS DC pkgs never show on the system until they were delivered. Think sometimes the carrier (or whoever) just doesn't get them entered in the system. If yours was updated initially, then nothing, believe they're still headed where they're going, just no one has bothered to scan them again for whatever reason.

I did just get a pkg from nearby town and it was shown the day the seller sent it and it did not change until after it was delivered, so maybe thats the same deal you're noticing?? Weird..

it's important to remember that usps priority mail has a DELIVERY CONFIRMATION # , not a real time tracking #. That was changed in 5-2007 when they switched over to zone type parcel shipping.up until recently I have run an ebay store, and I get people contacting me all the time wondering if their item really shipped because the info say"the usps was electronically notified on xx/xx/xxxx to expect a package for delivery....etc.".
and ususally the info shows nothing but that until it's delivered,which is what delivery confirmation is for.But if it passes through a processing center when crossing shipping zones it scans in and is reported through the confirmation #.

So if you are getting something shipped to you from the same postal zone you live in it WILL NOT show up on the delivery confirmation info page UNTIL it is actually delivered.

..I only use Fed Ex..on the 2 day..most of the time I'll send ground because it usually gets their in 2 days anyways..Here in Ca. if I ship within the state it only takes a day or two..So why waste the money..plus with as big of a loss as we take on selling RC stuff I'm certainly not going to pay $160to ship anything..dont care how bad the buyer wants it..I'll pay that much if the buyer pays for shipping..
