Has anyone had problems tracking USPS shipments?
« on: 06:39 AM - 03/28/11 »
I had a xim sent to me on saturday, The tracking number is real (the guy sent me a picture message with the package/tracking #/my name on it)

the USPS Gives this error anytime i try to try track it:
Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office.


Its a collect on delivery shipment so... Its important i am home/know when its gonna be here. Anyone have any idea why it wont display any info at all? Its coming from Boston going to Ohio, so i need to find out an estimated time it will be here

maybe try your luck with their call-center, i guess thats the place where they know the most about this stuff

did you insert the number correctly?
sometimes there must be spaces between the numbers and the letters

Yeah i did, it actually spaces the numbers out itself after you don't space it yourself originally

I know the tracking # is right because, if i edit just 2 digits of the tracking # this is the message i get:

Label/Receipt Number: **********

There is no record of this item.



If i enter the real tracking i get this:
   Label/Receipt Number: **********

Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office.





How long do you think it would take a package coming from boston, going to ohio?
I've tried calling them directly about tracking and they told me the same thing "its not available on our system yet"

Does not make a lot of sense to me :/ It was dropped off saturday AM. As far as i know USPS packages dont deliver but are still in transit on Sundays

usually you get an email with a direct link to your tracking number, have you checked this?

how did you get your tracking number btw?
maybe theres a fault in it, a wrong number or so

I bought from a private seller here on the forums, i dont think he gave them my email.
The seller told me the tracking #, as well as sent me a picture message by phone of the package with my name/tracking info/info on it

have you pm-ed this person?

i guess thats the easiest way, he sent the package so he also received a tracking number via email
he should click on that link, tell you the informations you need and you re fine :)

usps doesn't have up-to-date tracking.  It will only show that it is in route, and you probably won't get any updates until attempted delivery.

kind of pointless to have it if it does not even work at all

Yeah, there have been plenty of times my USPS "tracking" hasn't even shown the item in route until after it's been delivered. USPS tracking is worthless.
