I sent a really important parcel via certified mail on April 11, 2017 and they were not able to deliver it.First, the postal workers failed to scan the envelope when it arrived as discovered by the postal investigator who was looking into my claim of lost mail.
It was instated because consumers were laughing at them for not having tracking, and then going to UPS/Fed EX/Airborne even though it costs more. Anyway, USPS finally got with the 21st century (a while ago, but this is still relevant) and has tracking on some shipments. Like the moron I am, I keep checking for updates (something that UPS/Fed Ex/Airborne do the time) and nothing changes. This faux tracking is nothing more than a bureaucratic tease. I’m not sure how they decide who to ship with, the last time I selected “super saver shipping” (AKA free), they sent it UPS and I got lovely/timely meta data.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(!TCGplayer may earn interest or other compensation from the balances in our bank accounts that result from the timing difference between our being paid by a buyer and our bank account being debited to pay out credits to a seller.TCGplayer will bear the risk of credit card fraud (i.e.Shipped with Tracking or Confirmation and has an “In Route” Status If a package is not delivered by the end of the expected delivery date quoted on TCGplayer -- -- the Seller should submit a case with the USPS either via their Online Form or by calling 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777).

I'm better off reordering the product and eating the cost of the lost package.Wait was an hour and it's now been 2 hours and no return call. Poorly designed and developed website: As a retired CIO with over half a century of work in the design and development of IT systems, my advice to USPS management is to take stock of the level of competency in your IT group, from the coders, the QAers, the designers and especially the senior management that would allow such a dysfunctional image of the organization to be presented to the public.
