USPS delivery confirmation number

And Skarn no hard feeling, this was not a personal attack on you. Just my .02 because that system has frustrated me for a long time.
No problem bro!

I was just trying to point out that USPS delivery confirmation is DIFFERENT from USPS Track and Confirm.

Altec, yes the website only says track and confirm as it uses the same system for both methods, but unless you specifically paid for tracking, it won't update until it's delivery is CONFIRMED.

Delivery Confirmation: "Delivery Confirmation service gives you the date, ZIP Code™ and time your article was delivered"

So as you can see, it's different than tracking....for tracking you have to pay for the express mail.

But you do usually see at least the number registered as something like "the sender has electronically informed the usps the package is ready for pickup....".

That's why I am worried. The seller told me he shipped the item last Wednesday and there's still no record of it. Either he did not ship the package yet or shipped without delivery confirmation number. He promised me he was going to ship the item via usps priority mail w/ delivery confirmation.

I detest using the USPS for anything.
UPS tracks and tells me exactly where the package is at any time.

I refuse to use USPS for anything other than letter mail.

even when using the so called "premium" tracking from USPS its seldom updated and will sit at "billing received" for ever and never update till its in the town post office.

UPS on the other hand the second that truck its ok passes a hub the packages on it get scanned and tells me your package just came through Little Rock AR. and departed for Houston Texas..


thats what I call tracking..

If I ever have the pleasure of doing business here with you guys rest assured UPS with good tracking from me =P

USPS delivery confirmation number
Waste of band width as far as I'm concerned. Means absolutely nothing! A 'feel good' service, and nothing more.

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

Stay away from USPS, they suck, I sent a check to Denver for my 600EP Express guaranteed!!!! 2-3days, 10 Days later it arrived, it could not be located by the USPS during that time. I asked for money back since it is Guaranteed!!!! 2-3day delivery, I got the too bad, so sorry, it happens some times. Than to top it off the heli was sent USPS Ground, it arrived 27 days later, 27 days to get from Denver to Cleveland. Needless to say I am amazed that my bills arrive on time. Stick with the guys that do it for a living, UPS or Fedex. I just sent a check to Hong Kong UPS, went out Monday, arrived yesterday.

-USPS does NOT have a "Guaranteed!!!! 2-3day delivery" delivery is an estimated 3-5 days for priority mail.
-USPS Express mail is the only trackable service USPS has starting at a little over $16.
- Priority mail cannot be tracked!
People complain about USPS however still use their services... go figure.

USPS Express is Guarateed 2-3days, and there is no tracking, I bought the "tracking", its delivery confirmation, that was my argument when they lost the letter, " I paid for a tracking number, so track it and tell me where it is", " we dont have tracking, its only delivery confirmation, we cant find out where it went, we can only hope that where it was missdirected too will send it along", and no I dont use USPS for anything of importance, its no differant than any other government run operation, just because they get paid doesnt mean they have to do there job, if the company you work for operated like the post office it would go out of buisiness!!!!

Delivery confirmation is not trackable at this time. The number appears on the site when the sender actually brings it to the office and it is scanned as arived at that office and then scanned again when its delivered. After this weekend they are supposed to update their system to be able to track the package at every point along the way not just the received at point and the delivery point

Where on the USPS website is it stated that priority mail is guaranteed 2-3 days?
Express mail has DETAILED tracking much on par or better than UPS or FedEx and has a guaranteed delivery time of 1 or 2 days.
USPS has not been a government run operation since 1971.

From USPS website:

"Track & Confirm by email is an online feature that saves you time by allowing the United States Postal Service® to send current delivery status information on your mail piece. There are two options: email all activity to-date or email all future activity."

You get delivery status with this service.


From USPS website:

"Now you can have delivery of documents and packages made in 2 to 3 days."

Where does it say priority mail is guaranteed?

"After this weekend they are supposed to update their system to be able to track the package at every point along the way not just the received at point and the delivery point"

Where is this stated at? express mail is the only service that does this and more...not priority.

People complain about the post office and still use it?

USPS already has tracking with express mail.
If the USPS folds I am sure DHL, FedEx or UPS will be glad to take your 7 plus dollars to deliver your letters.

Delivery Confirmation is an addtional service you can purchase with your priority mail. It does not change the estimated delivery time or add tracking... it will however advise you of it being delivered.

The original post asked how long does it take to show the delivery confirmation number. Priority doesnt have a set time. They say about 2 or 3 days but its not gauranteed

USPS track & confirm sucks for sure but USPS doesn't charge $10 and take freaking 7 days for a 3"x3" box. USPS priority gets the same package to its destination in 2-3 days and charges half of what brownies do. Heck, I can live without tracking as long as my item gets to me fast. I NEVER ship with UPS unless I have no other option.

I go by

1.USPS
2.DHL
3.FedEX
4.Well, you guess what goes here...

How long...... I have found that with USPS - it simply depends on where the drop off point is. I always print my lables online, therefore the "delivery Confirmation" is FREE, plus Priortity shipping boxes are FREE as well.

UPS needs tracking because it takes so long too arrive. Ship something UPS on Thursday, pay for 2 day Air then wait for a Monday delivery.....
