    LZ189171307US I get the tracking updates from things that happened 8-10 hours ago! So delayed :( US -> Canada shipment. At noon today USPS tracking told me that last night at 10PM it left my airport to go to a Post Office, and nothing since. How will I actually know when it’s out for delivery, as it takes so long for the next update to show, even though it happened hours ago??!?!

  • A.J. Ruckman

    9461509699937069299150 has been “In Transit to Destination” to my city from a city 2 hours away for over 20 hours. There’s no way it could take that long, I think the tracking must be behind.

  • Roni

    I printed an online label Saturday Dec 27th. Dropped off the package via drop box. It went in. Box was secured. Label was secured. Delivery is Dec 1st all my tracking says is shipping label created. Grateful that I got signature confirmation. So hoping once it’s signed and delivered I’ll get notifications.

  • Jonah George (ShadowCooper77)

    I ordered a package from Florida from ebay. it said it was coming on the sixth of december which is a tuesday. then when it got shipped and i could track it, it said friday. it did not come on friday and the tracking updates are VERY late. It still says its coming on friday! its freaking saturday! It said that for so long. It updated today saying “in transit to destination”. i dont know how it takes TWO DAYS to get to new jersey from florida. I am really freaking pissed off with usps. It still hasn’t updated. I haven’t checked the mail yet. it is currently 5:33 PM. It will probably come on monday if it doesnt today and its just late. I really am pissed.

    I ordered phone cases from someone in CA and they shipped it over 7 days ago. 3 days in and it went right back to where it was shipped. Then went to some other town in CA 2 days ago and nothing has updated since. It was suppose to be delivered today. I ordered a American Girl item from someone in IN and it took over 2 days to go 1 hour 47 minutes. It’s still in IN (different town). It was also suppose to be delivered today. (I’m in WI) Seems the USPS isn’t doing too well! I’ve been buying and selling on eBay since 2002 and this is the first time I’ve had items sit for that log or travel back to the same state.


    My package is supposed to arrive from Burlingame yesterday, but when I looked at the tracking today, it hasn’t updated the expected delivery day at all. So, please help.

  • Anger

    I have a package expected to arrive today, but USPS doesn’t even show it has received the package although Amazon states it was handed of to USPS in my city.

  • MAD

    My package is apparently in Kansas, even though I live all the way on the East, and it’s been in Kansas for like 2 days!!
