Has anyone ever seen USPS just not update their tracking?

Alicia Alicia
I have two orders on their way. One is an assignment on its own and then one is a video assignment with tons of other stuff that I ordered. Both were sent the same day but one shows as being on route for delivery today and the other never shows anything since leaving Kearny NJ. Has anyone ever experienced USPS's site just not updating the info? I'm really hoping that my large order hasn't gotten lost somewhere. Mike says he's seen it just not update before..but I don't know if he's just trying to make me feel better. It's only been a few days but just the fact that one has already gone through several states and the other hasn't has me worried.

Yeah, it takes a long time for USPS to update their thing. In fact, you won't see it update until it arrives at your city's main post office for sorting.

Yea, one of them shows that already. It shows that it went to Raleigh and then also our town and then that it left our town and is out for delivery. The other one doesn't show any of that. It just shows that it was processed through NJ and then nothing for two days. Which..is what has me worried. If they were both shipped at the same time and both left NJ at the same time...why did the one never arrive in my state?

It's taken up to two days after they shipped it for me, but it has yet to fail to update at all. You could always go UPS, but in my area it takes longer.

IT depends. They usually take a bit to update. As fast as EF's shipping gets here, I honestly usually get the package before USPS has updated that they are shipping it. x.x

That's good to know. I got the one today but the other still just says it's been processed through NJ. I called and asked USPS about it and they told me that it's just a courtesy that they update it at all and that this one they just might have chosen not to. So, she says she thinks that it'll get here tomorrow...so *fingers crossed*. I really am just hoping that the order didn't get lost!!

Sometimes, I have the same thing. So your package should get to you soon, regardless!

This can be a PIA, but I appreciate Eden's shipping. A couple other things were tried, but this is the best one!

Sorry to say, but they have sent my stuff to the wrong place before. Another time they never found the order. I had to place a dispute over the phone, it was easy to do. They said it had been left at my door, however I never recieved it. After placing a dispute with USPS they told me to contact the store and let them know so that they might be able to re-send the order. Now I was thinking Wal-Mart is not going to re-send something to me if it's nothing they have done. Well they did, and I had to sign an agreement saying that if I recieved the order that disapeared then I would return one of them back to the store.

Was a real pain in my ass but they took care of everything in the long run, at no extra cost to me also. Hope this isn't the case with your stuff.

Best wishes!

Eden's shipping has been all over the place lately. I have like 5 back ordered items and the reast of the order didn't update correctly. I have gotten packages where they arrive at my door at literally this is the update info:

Delivery notifcation NJ- 10-4
Arrival at Bublmefuck, Illinois 10-9

Yea...don't worry about it hun.

Yea, this isn't on Eden's side..this is all USPS. But yea, it's pretty much like that with this one..or so the USPS rep says. It just makes me worry when every other package I've ordered updates at each location and this one I have nothing. So, the rep is saying that every other time they just did it as a courtesy and this time chose not to.

Well, this at least has delivery confirmation. Problem is that it usually just says something like "left with woman" which could be ANY woman. But, since it's not saying delivered I'm not too worried about that. And the mail man knows me by name and face now since he brings me packages so often lol. He's always like "here's yet another one for ya ma'am!" every time he sees me.

I did get the delivery today, so the USPS person was right, they just don't always update it

They are lazy and don't update. I've had the same problem. Call them and they act put out for actually having to DO their job.

Thing is, the stuff DOES get there. But, usually their delivery isn't guaranteed by a certain day, like UPS or FedEx.

USPS is the worst for tracking. Basically all it ever says is when it's left EF and then after it arrives here it will say "delivered.

Yes this woman totally sounded put out and she was a snot about it when I was asking about it. I like to have things sent USPS because UPS doesn't get here until about 7-8pm or so and that's when I'm trying to get the kids ready for bed and stuff.

It happens to me all the time. Don't worry.

I think that they say they'll update info once a day. As far as I can tell USPS seems to be more reliably rapid that UPS or FedEx, and I like the way that they don't just leave stuff out saying "steal me". Maybe that's an option that was told them at some point, maybe not - not sure how they decide what to leave and what to keep secure.

Yeah. They never seem to care about updating their tracking with my orders. Not one of them.

Almost all of my amazon.com orders go from "we have been notified to expect your package" to "your package has been delivered" with no updates in between. It's maddening.

Are they still having problems with backlogs from the snow perhaps?

That happened on my recent order. Every time I clicked on tracking, it gave me the "this doesn't exist" message, even after the package had been delivered. Tracking fail.
