Question Anyone Shipped Expess Mail??

So I paid $23 to ship a card next day to BGS. I printed the postage at work and dropped it off at the post office(dropped it in the drop box inside) a hour before the post office closed. So it's be a full day and the tracking # hasn't updated. I got to thinking, what if the post office says they never got the package. Is it my word against there's? Am I screwed if the package was stolen? Or is it common for express mail tracking to not update?

Did you check the pick up times on thee box ...maybe it wasnt picked up yet
maybe its on its way and just never got scanned
maybe the driver wants to chance a union job for your package
maybe it was his last day and all bets are off
maybe...

Your best best with Express Mail is to do it AT the post office. I don't trust the PO to look at the little Paypal slip and realize it's supposed to be express mail. They have specific express mail envelopes.

Also, to guarantee next day, you have to have it dropped off my a certain time. You can't drop it in the box at 5 PM and expect it to be on the other side of the country the next day.

As far as your tracking, I'm sure it will appear. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

express is usually taken care of a little better, i would expect it to update and if you have the tracking number you'll at least have a shot at any claim if there is an issue, i recommend insurance when u do that next time tho.

My Post Office requires express mail to be handed to a clerk by 3:00pm.
