USPS tracking.
I ordered a couple of things from Helidirect on the 15th, and apparently the parcel is still in Malden MA. The same thing happened the first time I ordered from HD... some weeks later I got a letter in the mail saying that I have a parcel due for collection at the post office.. never did get any update on the tracking.

So it looks like once again I will have the stuff in my hands before any tracking info is provided.

Why do they do this?

USPS tracking is a joke. It's not real time and I think it's provided to make you feel good. UPS and FedEx are real time and much better.

It always works perfectly for me I think the area of the country and what facility it gets to dictates wheter or not you get good tracking (lazy employees and such).Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

Yes UPS tracking is real time. As soon as the package is scanned it is shown on the UPS web site.
I use UPS, FEDX and many other tracking web sites every day. Some are faster to populate than others but UPS is quick. They have a 1 800 number, call them and they will tell you why your tracking is not showing until you receive your package.

You mean that you actually get tracking?

They claim to provide tracking, and they do... they do make the claim, that is. Actually providing it seems to be another thing altogether.

I've sent three packages USPS Priority Mail in the last two weeks and all three were tracked properly. That being said, it certainly doesn't always work... They are so far behind UPS and FedEx in that respect.

I only ever use USPS and only 1 time ever did I have a package being sent to me that said "pre-shipping info" and then showed up at my door. Everything else has always been VERY timely, cost effective, and accurate. I won't ship by UPS due to abuse and their ridiculous costs. Fedex would be the only other place I would go and only if I had to. Just my preference.Regards, Brandon Bartolomucci; Team Synergy; Team Scorpion; & Team Bavarian Demon; AMA# L939231

Delivery confirmation was never intended to be a live tracking number.However, It always does what says it does... It confirms the post office had your package at the last know scan and also confirms delivery... That way the recipient can't just simply dine they received it.

Be thankful it works as well as it does.

As far as the post office goes you better use it or you might loose it.... And for the ones who don't understand once its gone you will.

I ship a lot and almost use the PO exclusively. Rarely have I had problems...

Today I easily had the time (and the lust) to go to the field and run a few packs, but I didn't as I haven't received my ESC.
Australia post tracking shows no info on the package, which was confirmed by the post office when I went there on friday, which means that after 3 weeks the package hasn't even arrived in Australia. Perhaps it's still in the US, or somewhere in between, but again I cannot know because USPS "tracking" does not update.

We must be talking about two different delivery services, then, because the one that I paid for specifically advertises "tracking", not "delivey confirmation."

I bought a Nexus 7 tablet that Google declared shipped on the 2nd...FedEX had it in Australia by the 3rd. That's one day to get it across the ocean, as opposed to the 3+ WEEKS now that USPS is taking. I cannot for the life of me understand why I should prefer to be at the mercy of USPS over FedEX.

That's exactly what all of us here in the U.S. are saying . . .

80% of what the USPS brings to my door goes straight into the garbage can every day. Its well past its usefulness as a business. Now as a black hole for tax money, its very efficient.
