Default USPS Got Me Down

Sold some cards on this forum and mailed them out this past Tuesday. I actually mailed another package same day as well.

The other package was scanned in initially and was updated as it went from place to place.

Unfortunately, the package for the Net54 buyer has no scans. Has this happened to anyone else? Was there a happy ending?

Thanks!

Unfortunately fairly normal if you mail a lot of stuff. I made a trade last week with a forum member. We both sent out the cards last friday. Tracking shows the cards I send arrived today and i have yet to receive my cards. Just give it some time and they usually show up.

Sometime if you sign up for text alerts they amazingly show back up.

i mailed a package oct. 1. never entered the usps tracking system until oct 7. fortunately, the buyer believed me and the package arrived to him a few days later. unfortunately, the usps is unreliable when it comes to tracking.

Unfortunately still no luck.
Refunded the buyer... I do trust he’ll pay me if the cards show up.

Not very hopeful though...
Learned the hard way to pay for insurance.

Hopefully it shows up for you. I have had several packages take a month or more.

Cant remember what I bought from Leon but I sent $ with USPS tracking and it took a month for Leon to get it. The item I bought was sent with tracking and took a month to arrive. I have several more examples with Net54 members but the one with Leon was the only one that had a major delay going both ways.

The stories keep me hopeful. Crazy that this happens so frequently...

Maybe it’s been hurricane related.

Earlier this year I received a package whose first scan was the one showing delivery. I've had packages disappear for weeks then show up.

And if the seller sends by registered mail . . . .fuggetabout it as we say in Jersey. You might seek one tracking note and the nothing more for 10 days. Painfully slow. Sits on some guy's desk for a few days while he eats lunch and reads the racing form.

Hoping that’s the case with this one...

BLEEPING USPS.

They have me with 2 of them at the same time.

First one I bought from a guy in Texas. Tracking shows Houstan then Washington DC and is now in Maryland. I live in South Dakota, I guess the item needed to go on tour before it gets here.

Then I sent a registered Priority box to NY last week that still shows as being in South Dakota. 5 Days and it hasn't moved for shipping that cost me close to $30.

OK done venting now.
