Default USPS Question (OT)

I did a deal with a guy not on this board. It moved off EBay and I bought direct. He gave a ton of info on him and it all checks out. He might be a tad flakey but I don't think that he is a con. If so, expensive lesson learned. (1k)

My challenge is this. I made the purchase 2 weeks ago on 2/23. He provided a tracking number on 2/26. There was no activity on the tracking until 3/3. It said expected delivery of 3/5. 3/5 has come and gone and it still shows it as departed Kent Wa facility but is not showing any activity here. When I called USPS yesterday, they said that it is still inside of the window as it was not dropped off until 3/3 (which is an issue as he said 2/26 it was dropped off). But I check every day and it seems like the system is stuck. Has anyone had an issue like this with tracking? I have bought several items since and have received those. I thought I might have been taken, but the fact that it shows in progress has me confused.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Here are a couple of tricks that I use if a package is stuck. 1) Go to your local post office and ask them to track it through their computer. 2) Sign up for the emails for tracking of the item.

Good luck.

Default USPS Question (OT)


I feel ya on USPS deliveries...they can make you sweat quite a bit sometimes. I've had packages that I know were shipped on a certain date and something like that usually shows up within three days, but didn't actually arrive for over a happens. I would wait a few more days before starting to worry. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see it show up on Monday or Tuesday.

Keep us updated!

I just had one that I sent to another member on here. It showed that I printed a shipping label, but it never was scanned in by USPS. Then 7 days later, it showed up in the system as delivered. With no scans anywhere else throughout it's journey.

As someone that has a very high percentage of USPS problems. Just relax it will eventually show up.

If it has not showed up after 10 days the sender needs to fill out an online form saying the item has not showed up. Usually your item will show up in a few days after that. I have had several items in the last couple years take 30-45 days to show up.

I've had a couple of situations where the tracking shows no movement at all, and then the package shows up at my door. Don't treat the tracking info as gospel.

Speaking as a small town USPS employee who has depended on the service for both buying and selling I don't think you have anything to worry about at this point. I'm sure it will be there soon.

I had an issue with them when I shipped 9 bats altogether once a couple of years ago…as it turned out…I knew the size of the box and could give an accurate description…it was sitting in a facility only 45 minutes from my house…however no way to go and look…then it got shipped to Atlanta Ga…filled out a form for a missing box….turns out that the label when going through the machine got swiped off…eventually after many phone calls and forms being filled out…they were returned to me and then I shipped them again but not all at in one big box..
Start with the local post office and go from there…they should be able to help you since they are being tracked.

It is way to soon to panic. It will likely show up the first part of next week. It is still measured in days, not weeks. Relax. Breathe. It is the USPS.

The Feb 26th date is the date that he printed the shipping label and the shipping info was then transmitted to the Post Office.

The March 3rd date is the day that he actually dropped off the package at the Post Office. Things have been very slow lately because of plant closings, and the tracking system is pretty bad. I would guess that you will have it on Monday or Tuesday.
