    If you need to discover where the bundle is, you don't have to visit their offices or even call them. It can be done on the web in a jiffy. USPS package tracking is available for both domestic and international parcels. This is what you should do to find your parcel’s shipping status:

    • step 1

      Open the official USPS site

    • step 2

      Proceed to 'Quick tools' → 'Track a package’ (or visit this page)

    • step 3

      Specify the tracking ID (it must be up to 35 characters).

    • step 4

      Press 'Enter'.

    You will see the current progress of transportation, current package location and conveyance time. The procedure for USPS tracking international or domestic parcels is the same – you only need to enter the tracking number, that it.

    This way of defining the parcel location is the simplest one. However, instead of visiting USPS official website you can also use third-party services (only tracking ID is required).

  • What you should know about USPS tracking by tracking number

    To define the shipping progress status, you don’t have to pen your account on USPS website – it can be done via the tracking third-party websites. However, to avoid mistakes, when you use USPS tracking by tracking number, it’s important to remember about the following:

    • A typical tracking number is either a 22-digit combination, or a combination in the format CP 000 000 000 US (for international deliveries);
    • Your tracking number will be written on the bottom peel-off portion of your USPS Tracking® label.
    • Whenever you receive a USPS shipping receipt, it will also contain the USPS tracking package number.

    As a rule, tracking number can be used at all stages of delivery starting from the order confirmation and finishing by the delivery t the final destination. If the correct tracking number doesn’t work, contact the USPS customer support and find out where exactly your parcel is. In case of loss or delayed shipping, you can claim for the compensation.

USPS review by Lulu


I have been mailing priority mail flat rate boxes all over the US for years. They have always been on time or early and in damaged. They are always delivered to the correct location. Tracking is very easy online. You can even sign up for notifications and know exactly when they’re delivered. Some of the problems that people have are that USPS has been delivering Amazon and other carrier packages since the pandemic, since Amazon does not have enough people. Considering the volume that the post office handles, and the rates that they charge not sure why people complain. Maybe I’ll have a different review tomorrow if my package due on the second goes missing….. day-to-day mail service, not the best. I often get neighbors mail and they get my mail, not sure why.

My package was in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 24th. My package was in San Francisco, CA on February 28th. I live in Decatur, Indiana. What is wrong with this picture? Here it is, February 29th and I still don't have my package. Probably won't for another week, if ever. Zero stars that's my rating.
