For my whole time on the EE I have used USPS and never had an issue with a package not being delivered, etc (knocks on wood
). So for the buyers out there, could you all just chill a bit with tracking. USPS tracking is not that great. I have come up with this formula.
Where a is when you start freaking out about your package not showing any movement via tracking. 2 is a constant of 2 days. Finally b is when your package will finally arrive. e.g. Say I am expecting the box to be here Monday, I would add 2 days to that, which means I will get my package Wednesday.
A lot of people want the sellers to call USPS, to which I ask, and do what exactly? No amount of Karen-ing will get the box there faster. Once it's been a while then sure, contact USPS.
PS. The constant is changed during the Holiday season. The constant of 2 is probably more like 7.
