Yup. I see a lot of that, unfortunately.I was going to commiserate with some of the other folks and mention how I have been waiting a long time for 2 USPS packages. Then I found out that the jerks / sleaze-balls at the other end never sent them, even though, one had sent a tracking number - made it look like it never left the Post Office, when, in fact, he generated the label but never shipped it. They are both eBay issues now.
Idk I'll be finding out, had an ebay buyer request I send his stuff out usps. Said hes not in a hurry to get it. Was about $3.00 cheaper for usps instead of ups ground. Unfortunately I wasnt able to get it to fit in a flat rate box (physically too big) which ran the shipping cost up more then I would have liked, but at least i could still get tracking, and Insurance on it. Dropping it off after work. Very hesitant, hoping it goes well, havent had great luck in the past with them.I use USPS much more than I do UPS or Fed-Ex. For the most part, USPS does a good job. But, like most everything else, it's become very expensive.
Everything has tracking, even media mail... and even you. You just don't need a barcode.Just when I thought that there was some hope for the USPS, it goes ahead and does that.
I'm old enough to recall days of long ago, when you could ship something and you didn't need a tracking number, cause they didn't exist.Everything has tracking, even media mail... and even you. You just don't need a barcode.
So, let me get this straight... you actually prefer the cheap price for slower delivery time with no insurance and don't care if it has a tracking number?
I'll agree, shipping standard post used to be a viable option, compared to Priority Mail, pricewise... but that was back in the day when you had to pay for tracking... and back before carriers had gps on their scanners... in the olden days.
