the tracking information only appears to get updated once the package is delivered..much for the usps to provide up-to-date tracking...i wonder why it is even offered... They really do suck.y A= Hey Tim, maybe what you don't seem to realize is that Priority Mail doesn't have tracking, unless you purchase it separatly...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.i've recently purchased an ebay item where the seller used the usps priority mail to ship it..kindly enough sent me the tracking information for it...so naturally i go to the site to get tracking information..a lie.
And with new text alerts, you'll get updates on your package sent right to your phone.
Now Express Mail does have tracking built in to the purchase of the express mail postage. THIS IS JUST TYPICAL US POSTAL "LACK OF SERVICE" Still waiting in Hawaii it's beena little while and what I found out is even the private courriers can't next day air anything to Hawaii, it's 2nd day services that actually is what they can only supply our shipments. Then at the last several minutes I got an email (I subscribed to the track & confirm by email) that it got delivered to my house. And the first email I got from this was the starting point as to where my package is currently located. tracking has no use if you can't see what has happened to your post.
It doesn't update me on where it was heading next, either. I'm sure Airborne is good too but I never used them before. I'm upset that most of the stuff I ordered used USPS. why do they even bother placing a tracking number if they do not update daily? Paul Minnesota was sent to me in two packages; the first one got here in a week(!
