Default How do I track a package FROM Australia?

The tracking # starts with RP and ends with AU.

Any idea? I have tried AU Post and USPS with no luck.

USPS may not track it but austpost should. Make sure all the letters and numbers are without spaces between.

I ordered an RG3 towel patch from a seller in Australia and paid Dec 4th. It just came today. Over a month is unreal. No way to track though I don't think. That's why I won't sell overseas. Too risky IMO.

I don't know about from there, but I had one from like china once, I was able to track it to the US, but once it showed up and was scanned in this country I didn't get any more updates and it just showed up one day

BTW, did you get my PM this morning?

Huh? So you bought something from overseas during the Christmas mail rush, and you got it without issues, yet you won't sell overseas because of this experience? That makes no sense...

Shipping to and from Austrailia is notoriously slow, but this shouldn't dissuade anyone from doing business with the Aussies.

I didn't mean any disrespect with my statement. I understand the lag time. But without a tracking number to cover yourself on PayPal, they could say they never received it. I've been scammed twice by that so that's the reason for my statement. I will buy from overseas though.

There is the Express option if they're willing to pay for it - that one is fully trackable.

What you paid for was Registered Post which unfortunately can not be tracked on line. The seller can however request the Australian Post Office to track the item (but this I believe does not meet paypals requirements)

To be able to track an item on line sent from Australia you need to pay for Express Courier at around $55 from Australia to the US.

In some ways the services we have to send mail overseas suck

I've gotten shipments from all over the world in less than 10 days, but Canada always takes 2-3 weeks... anybody have this same experience?

Customs makes it take so long.

So I personally cannot track the card?
