@GelaMac:  Hey there! I had the same problem with an ebay seller. Apparently even though there is a tracking # to follow it doesn’t actually mean anything. It tells you it’s been accepted at the post office and that’s all the info you get until you receive it, which is very deceiving.  I hope you receive it soon!

hey gela!

Unfortunetly USPS international for first class mail (with delivery confirmation) does not get tracked once it leaves the states. I assume it shows being in Philadelphia becasue that is an international depot. I have had some canada packages recently take about 2 weeks to get to their location. So don’t panic i am sure they are on their way

I have had the same experience, I’m from Canada and frequently buy from Etsy sellers, and the tracking number, as everyone has said, is less than useless! If it helps, I’ve usually gotten packages in a week or less! (I’m in Kingston, ON if it matters)

USPS isn’t the greatest to follow tracking (even in the states!) I rarely even bother tracking a package when it is through them.

i have had lots of things delivered by usps. i live in canada and hubby is in usa. i buy tons online. usually once it leaves the usa there is no tracking for first class international (the lowest priced shipping option). for others like priority mail and higher, you can track it all the way to your door.

Yeah, that mode does NOT get tracked. It usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

Other USPS modes do have tracking, but that one is one of the more affordable modes and does not. The number is just in case the item gets lost or for insurance purposes I suppose.

USPS really shouldn’t even say they do tracking. they are so terrible. especially when the long weekend in the US, it will definitely be delayed from the predicted delivery. ๐Ÿ™
