    You may want to consider UPS or curbside pickup.

    So, I'm gonna get some samples and use USPS to see how long it takes.
    Businesses that don't give customers the option of choosing between carriers must really be taking a hit. I'm a cosmetologist (retired, but cut my own and my husband's hair) and need new shears, but the ones I want only ship by USPS and I won't risk it. I'm just one little person - the same scenario must be multiplied many times over by businesses across the country.

    I opened a claim on a missing package yesterday, we'll see how that goes.

    I have only had to open one claim with USPS.
    I did eventually get my package , for it was delivered to a wrong address.

    I have had packages delivered to my address that were intended for another .
    I walked them over to the correct residence .
    Hopefully it works out for you.

    Thanks JBS1, fingers crossed!

    I am glad that you received your decants, with no damage. Hope the packages you're still waiting for get to you soon and in good condition.

    I shipped one decant from an ebay sale on December 10th. Last scanned in Jersey City about 3 weeks ago. Buyer just opened a case - without messaging me first of course. I've put in a missing mail request with USPS, but I'm sure I'm gonna have to refund this guy his money before that sees any response. Hopefully he will be honest if the package does eventually make it to him

    Such a mess. This situation is not going away anytime soon, I fear.

    I got my package yesterday from you.
    The other is scheduled for tomorrow.
    The tracking info on tomorrows delivery isn't anything like yesterdays delivery .

    In Transit, Arriving On Time
    Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered by the expected delivery date. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

    If you used tracking , it should show , making you not at fault.

    Ahhhh, access code retrieved! That's good news.

    I got an email from my local post office saying they'd received the case number on my missing package claim, and they're "looking into it."

    Should be getting a 10 ml of Fahrenheit Cologne, all the way from the Netherlands next week.
    Also I will be getting Pasha De Cartier EDP , for $58 , along with a travel spray of Dior's EAU SAUVAGE EXTREME INTENSE EDT.
    Getting them through Fragrancenet via FedX.

    That'll be funny if I get the FedX before I get the USPS.

    I hear you. Glad that UPS and FedEx are doing so well with their service in your area.

    The package I'm waiting for has not been scanned since Jan. 2 in NYC. I filed a claim with USPS on Jan. 8, but there's been nothing from them except an acknowledgement of the claim.

    What actually happens, when you report a missing package? How can they possibly find out what happened to it, after so long a time? If it was delivered to the wrong address and the person kept it, what then?

    When I filled the complaint at the USPS website, it was frustrating.
    I did get the acknowledgment , but really no follow up from anyone, except for an Was your issue resolved email.
    Since a nice person brought the misdelivered mail back to me , I deleted the email.

    Here is a link that I think will be helpful from the USPS site.
    https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm
    Your package was insured , correct ?

    I assume it was insured, it was shipped First Class by FragranceX. But, following the link you kindly provided, I see that I did not actually file a claim, I just opened a missing package complaint. They make things as complicated as they can, don't they? I just now received an infuriating email from the local post office, saying I should wait 10 more days and then file file a claim. The subject line of the email was: Issue Resolved!!! Holy cow. So I replied that my issue was not resolved, and my email bounced back because the postmaster rejected it!

    Thank you so much for that link! I see that I will need to wait a couple more days before I start a missing mail investigation. Much appreciated, JBS1.

    FedEx is a gem! Businesses will surely sit up and take notice, after this disastrous year with USPS.

    Usually , it's only in that facility for a night,
    What's most likely happened , is that it's sitting in a Gaylord , amongst other gaylords filled to the brim.
    I worked at a startup DHL .
    It was before all the tech machine sorters were installed.
    We had Gaylords stacked on top of other Gaylords that circled the inner perimeter walls 3 stages deep.
    We couldn't get the help to sort the mail, even at time & 1/2 pay.
    Sometimes we got paid double time, and the employees still wouldn't want to work .
    Seriously.

    So, it's just sitting there , in a Gaylord , hopefully.
    You should have seen all the massive amount of Barkboxes we had . Massive.
    ScentSplits fancy mailers by the TRUCK's full .
    You know all the complaints about their delivery time, well that was us.
    You couldn't get people to work . Every faction from every work placement we got.
    Anyone good , left.
    Click this link.

    First of course , you get the BS Ads . Start at 72K a year.
    Then you see that they are the job placement/work source agencies.
    Then you scroll down, and you get more job agencies .

    Here's the truth .
    $15 an hour/$30K a year.

    copied&pasted
    People also ask
    What is starting pay at USPS?
    USPS Starting Pay
    According to the APWU, the starting pay for a postal worker is: Annual Postal Worker Starting Salary - $30,000, which translates to $15.00 per hour.

    It's simple, just like at DHL, job agency placements.
    Even though the person the agency sent only last a week, the agency still gets it cut.

    Covid has a lot to do with it also.
    People are ordering online like crazy.

    Anyways. I'm not the only one waiting .
    So, I'll wait.

    FedEx is a gem! Businesses will surely sit up and take notice, after this disastrous year with USPS.
    Waiting can be good, but don't let it past 60 days.
    If you do, you'll have no rights for a claim.

    I won't, I'll allow 5 more days and if it's still not here, will file a claim.
