    Thats not entirely true.. I have been shipping things to family in Romania and Denmark for around 12 years or more and the customs form number always provided tracking for every package i sent.. It just doesnt give you every stop the package makes along the way as it does with shipping inside the US.. All of my packages to family have also told me when things were delivered.

    90% It will give you basic tracking for most places and sometimes not update you when things are delivered, it really depends where you mail it to and if the postal system is good in that country and if they scan everything that is delivered. If your item is scanned along the way you will get updates listed when you track the custom form number.
    The post master filled me in on that years ago when i first started shipping to my family.

    well if you are shipping stuff for ebay 90% isn't good enough.

    buyers have started in the last two years trying to opening a case of non receipt of goods just to see if they can con ebay/paypal into refunding their $$$ back to them....

    I've dealt with too many dishonest buyers to risk shipping international without ONLINE TRACKING.

    I'd rather spend the $14 and be protected with online tracking via USPS.

    I never had problems with international buyers. All the problems i have had on ebay have been with US buyers lol, most of the time those people are new members or have strikes against them so setting your options for who can bid on your stuff in ebay to not allow those people to bid on your auctions will save you a lot of headaches. I dont allow anyone with any negative feedback or 5 or less positive feedbacks to bid on anything i sell, if they do i cancel their bids and block them if they have negative feedback.

    How long has it been now? You may want to call the main office 1 (800) 275-8777 and see what they can do. Maybe open a insurance case on it.. all priority mail packages come with insurance included in the price now , i think its 50$ or 75$ worth..

    Yeah i would call that number i posted and see what they can help you out with.. You will get more help there then here i think. There could be a problem with the package and they are just waiting for someone to call about it . Could have a damaged shipping label and not know where its to be delivered some something odd like that.

    Los Angeles is also one of the main ports for CUSTOMS and other federal bureaus....it might have gotten stuck in the customs area possibly.

    Or more likely, it may have left and not been checked in at the port of destination yet.

    No. if it had left they would have scanned it showing the departure.

    It's still there ...somewhere in the LA hub that customs/USPS runs.

    Not necessarily. I send and receive plenty of international packages, I've seen numerous missed scans over the years.

    Then either you have to email USPS or have the sender call and find out whats going on.. That's the only way you will get any answers or anything resolved.. I think thats the best help anyone will be able to do for you in here. But i would ask the sender to give them a call as well.
    You can email them here USPS.comĀ® - FAQs
