Default Help with missing package with tracking!

So a buyer here bought a card from me the same day as two others. I printed off three labels from paypal, packed, and dropped off at the parcel post. Two were tracked and delivered. The third doesn't even show that the package was scanned. It's going on 7 days tomorrow and the buyer wants to file a claim. Who do I call first paypal for their label? USPS? I'm pissed what's the point of paying for tracking and dc if they don't scan it?

Honestly, your screwed all around. If you call paypal, they will say they need a valid tracking number, and if yours shows nothing, you lose. If you call USPS you will get the run around. Sorry my friend, but if the number does not become active soon, your out the card and money.

Don't listen to this. Call both. Just be nice and one or both should be helpfull. Mistakes happen just explain the situation. Sometimes you might have to talk to more than one person, but you can usually hunt down the card.

Yeah, why dont you just do what he says. And once you have done this, report back and see if the guy with 282 F/B as a seller on ebay was right or the guy with 4233 F/B as a seller is right.

Or he could listen to me considering I had a package that had tracking which wasn't being updated so I called the post office. Guess what they called the last place it was stuck at and they found it. Yes his tracking hasn't been scanned, but this doesn't mean they won't go through the steps and try to locate his package. Calling them will do a lot more than not so I would say my advice would be the wiser to follow.

Sometimes they do not update tracking until after it is delivered - especially parcel post.

I've heard time where it isn't scanned and still gets delivered but today is 7 days and the others were delivered last week. I'll make call today, won't hurt to try. How long should dimwit before refunding money? I don't want to refund then it show up.

There was another post in the David Gettis thread that autocorrected the posters attempt to write Gettis as Ghetto.

Hey if your right and the post office does something, then I owe you a apology. And I would agree with you that if it a least had been scanned in once they would attempt to look for it, but I have a feeling that what I posted will be the outcome. I have had it happen to me a few times where the tracking number never gets scanned in and nothing is ever done. So good luck to you sir.
