I had issues with them not scanning during the transit stages. I would also point out that there has been a major lag in USPS scans updating into Amazon tracking over the past few months - often it takes 1 to 2 days for the information you can see on to update to Amazon.
My buyers kept bugging me about not dropping off the packages. Be sure you check the tracking number though and not just through Amazon if there's an issue.
Most often a package is not scanned because the barcode is not scannable Or difficult to scan.
This most often happens whe the sender prints their own labels and the barcode is too light or fuzzy or crimped or wrapped around a corner. They can be manually entered but sometimes the dispatch time is tight and they go unscanned or the person sorting the mail doesn't want to bother with it.
All packages out of NYC go through the sorting station in Jamaica, NY - a suburb of NYC. If you see Jamaica on your tracking page it doesn't mean it is in the Carribean, rather that it has gone to the main international sorting station and is on its way to you.
and does this go for all services because I have many people getting stuff Express priority that are receiving them but there's no scan and some of them are expedited orders so its stressful. and does this go for all services because I have many people getting stuff Express priority that are receiving them but there's no scan and some of them are expedited orders so its stressful. I know that USPS can be sloppy with the scanning and tracking.
I've never had a situation when package is delivered and it is not scanned. I would say that their scanning is reliable about 95% of the time, but that other 5% of orders can be a real pain.
We've reached out to USPS to determine how we can better update customers when these types of things happen, but thus far it's still a work in progress.
While shipping procedures and delays are out of our control we are determined to make sure you're satisfied.
