Usps not updating tracking number
OK, so Tracking is now required in ALL categories & must be scanned in on time or its considered late, even if you deliver early.As a small family business I've been making sure to drop off packages by the shipping date, but with he holidays & even ever since, USPS is so busy that initial scans are not happening until after midnight, which has made many orders look late even though USPS had on time. COM is not updating ANY info, and reflects no movement in transit at all which is just confusing everything.This also is confusing my customers, as they receive two shipping confirmations, but we are just trying to keep within Amazon Policy.As I went to update with active on time tracking numbers just now, I see all the orders I have been handing in one by one to the Post Office to be scanned in front of me, all of them are not reflecting initial scan.
My son is on leave from Afghanistan and on 12/22 I sent him a Priority Mail. I think it's registered, certified, or return recepit. EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FREIGHT AND PACKAGE DELIVERY BUSSINESS CAN AT LEAST TELL YOU IF AND WHEN A PACKAGE WAS PICKED UP AND WHAT THE NORMAL ORGIN TO DESTINATION TIME IS. I've gotten two of my packages today and I've checked their site and it still says that they've just recieved the package from the sender and that they'll update the information, if available.So now I started not dropping off at the USPS pick up locations, because drivers are still having so many packages, they simply are not scanning anything, and decided, to hand walk them into the post office as my seller performance rating is suffering.While this is extremely time consuming and taking me away from my customers, listings, packing orders, etc...If it is past 90 days and your First Class package has not arrived please contact your local post office and customs agency to see if your package has arrived and you haven't been notified.Often times, your post office has the package and wants you to pay the import tariffs before it hands it over Priority Mail Express International service service comes with tracking and is insured.
