tracking problems

USPS tracking problems can occur when say the tracking number cannot be found, or there is a total outage where has gone offline. Other issues encountered could be to do with forwarding and priority mail, deliveries of packages etc. Whatever reason you have a problem with USPS share with Is Down Right Now.

The USPS (United States Postal Service) now has over 617,000 workers with over 211,000 vehicles working to get you delivery to you. But services to falter now and then and the U.S. Mail service, the main issues that will impact users the most would be a outage and of course mail or packages getting lost or not turning up for delivery when they were supposed to, and if this happens we want to know about it.

Complaints in the past have included a few customers saying they would use UPS rather than USPS because things do not get delivered when they are supposed to. The overall service is good, but if you are a customer with a complaint about the website or service then please share with the community below.

    USPS picked up a large item yesterday 8/6/19 (priority mail) and the tracking number is still not updated. It’s showing USPS is still waiting for the item. I will contact the end user to verify they get the package.

  • Ben

    Mines to but since the 29th and only updated once did you ever receive yours?

  • Emma

    It has been in transit for 12 days now. It still says August 1st, so probably not scanned yet. I contacted them today, hopefully they find it. Nope, haven’t received it yet.

  • Mike Gilmer

    USPS charges for Priority Mail with tracking but when you try to track it online, it says they are having problems with their system and cannot track anything. USPS sucks.

  • Kylie attinelli

    I bought something from an online seller and he said he shipped it 5 days ago. Still haven’t gotten any updates. The seller told me the person in the post office said tracking was down but it’s been down for days!!! I need to know where my package is because it’s coming from Georgia to Washington!!! That’s a long way and I have no idea what is happening.

  • Andre

  • AS Powers

    USPS was supposed to send my post on 11-31-2019, and all I got were crummy old implied rights
    to enjoy the balance of a fair continuance, under Art. I. §9 of the Constitution. What a freaking DRAG!!!! 😉

  • Maggie11

    USPS Informed Delivery is down here in Midland, Texas??

  • Bill T

    Here too in Illinois

  • beenthere

    Order from LLBean on 12/1/19, shipped priority mail 12/2/19. 12/6/19 USPS tracking says label created but they haven’t received the shipment. Had LLBean look into it (so many thefts these days) and they finally replied that delivery is expected 12/16/19! Don’t know who they talked to in getting that date…

  • Grapevine1987


  • Grapevine1987

    Coming to Michigan from Georgia via priority mail and it has been stuck at “Package acceptance pending delivery date unknown” for three days

  • bwhit9

    I shipped a package priority on 11/29/19. It went to the ATL distribution center on 11/30, then to the Memphis distribution center 12/1, and hasn’t been updated since. Should I be concerned? Where is this package?

  • bwhit9

    I should also share that it is going from Atlanta to Oregon.

  • Grapevine1987

    Just FYI. My tracking FINALLY updated last night. It’s in Detroit and will be here Monday.

  • Felix

    Anyone had this issue? My package was sent from Decatur, IL to where I’m at in Kansas City. IT ARRIVED AT THE DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN KANSAS CITY(!!!), but then it was sent off to Knoxville,TN for final delivery. Anyone have a clue as to how or why this would occur?

  • Peter Stuchlik

    Sent a package to my daughter in Lafayette Oregon yesterday afternoon and based on the tracking, it’s not moved with delivery to happen by 9 tonight. Wonder if a horse would have been a better call?

  • Anna

    I sent a package to California from Texas on November 30th and they still haven’t received it. Tracking number shows it going to next facility and will be delivered December 2nd. ??? Several of my packages show the same thing. What is going on?

  • Tamar Luecke

    My tracking number shows the same for 2 days, no movement. The original email stated it had a scheduled delivery of YESTERDAY

  • Justin Ryan Renihan

    Did your tracking ever update past Memphis?

  • JWright

    I ordered a package from Europe to Kansas City and it arrived in Chicago over a week ago (December 6th), with no update since then. I find it hard to believe that it would take 2 days to go from the Netherlands to Chicago, yet over a week to get from Chicago to KCMO. It estimated the package would be here on Dec. 10th, yet on that day and still right now, it says “In-Transit. December 6, 2019 at 5:45 pm. Processed Through Facility Chicago IL”.

  • Akela

    Experiencing the same. No updates as of Dec. 9th. My sister shipped the parcel Dec. 5th, going from Oregon to B.C. , she was told delivery would be the 12th. She had to do some web searching and it says my parcel is sitting in California 🙁

  • Julie

    Yep. Package late and no update since 13th. ☹️

  • Cassandrw

    I ordered off ebay shipping label created on 12/11 nothing since said waiting for package.Contacted seller said he took to post office on 12/12. Still nothing!

  • Denise

    I have sent out several packages on Ebay since thanksgiving, some 1st class and some priority. On every single package (about 15) they are taking 5-7 days to be delivered even priority. I have 1 package that was sent nov 29 and never arrived, they told me it was lost (prob stolen). What poor service! Im using Fed-ex now.

  • W Paul Marseglia

    Looks like some facilities are putting our package in wrapping paper , to put under their tree.
    My tracking package from Ebayer stopped info updated 5 days ago. Package is circling the globe.

  • Nicole Porter

    Been 34 days since ordering from Etsy, a seller from Greece. It’s been in US for 15 days now, saying “processed through facility in NY.” But not checked in officially into USPS facility. There’s a estimated time of arrival to facility and it’s been bumped until February 3rd, then February 7th, now February 11th. It was insured shipping but in Greek and I cannot read it. What do it do?? I’ve filed a claim with USPS but they cant/won’t actually look into it they said. Stuck in limbo???

  • Jeannette Red Hoyt

    I had a package picked up that I sold on poshmark yesterday. My postal worker stated she scanned it but it is not showing up under tracking. This is only my 3rd sale on poshmark and it will have a bad impact on me so early on. How can I find out where this went?

  • Heidi

    It is March 13, 2020 and my regular mail delivery is late. The mailman comes at 8am-9:30am and it is now 10:42am and I still did not get my mail delivered.

  • Timothy Powell

    What good is having a tracking number when the status is not updated along the route? The status of a package (that i really need for work) ahsn’t changed since the initial input. frustrating. makes you go to fedex and ups.

  • Veronica Esparza

    I’ve been waiting for my package all day and now it’s almost 9pm and nothing! The package tracking hasn’t updated for almost 24 hours!!!

  • Josh

    My mail has been in NYS (where I live) for 10 days now. It passed through customs over a week ago. No updates, nothing. Just says “Delivery Date Unknown”. This package was originally shipped out to me on February 25th!
