When should I contact the post office?

I don't know if it was the storm that caused this but it's almost going on 3 weeks now nothing else has changed or updated and I don't know if I should contact the seller or what.

What do you want the Post Office to do?

Was it insured?

Tell me what happened? It's past the first class mail date, not insured as far as I know.. I emailed the seller letting him know, I will give it about another week then I might just ask for a refund

If you call the USPS 1800 number, they will tell you a specific date to call back on to initiate a tracer. I believe First class and priority are officially considered lost after 2 weeks from the date of mailing.

So if it's lost what do I tell the seller? They contacted me yesterday and said it left the state but it's been the same now since pretty much the time it was mailed.

If it's lost and USPS says it is, then you tell the seller it is lost. If it is through Ebay, you don't need insurance. On Ebay, the seller has to prove that the item arrived to your house. It is on them until the item arrives. Of course, most sellers are cooperative.

Check with your local post office. It may be sitting around somewhere. That happened to me once.

If the PO can't find it, tell the shipper you didn't get it. If they refuse to take care of it, wait 30 days after the initial order date and tell your credit card company you never got it.

btw I used ebay and paypal

My response to the seller was pretty much, were do we go from here, hinting that I was about to open a dispute if he tried to get any smart.

So he says this

"if you did not receive the package by the end of next week, i will consider it lost and fully refund your money, all right? you know, i did ship your package. it was not both of us fault. usps messed it."

Sucks I ordered this item on my mom's ebay account to help gain her some feedback score (shes at 19) but on my account I've been a member since 2002 and I have 150.. I wonder if I would of had a difference response from the seller.

Call your local postmaster and ask them to put a trace on the missing item. Give them the tracking number. The tracking number and Intelligent Mail Barcode is read by USPS scanners at several points along the way that aren't reported online, which them can help pinpoint the last scan point before it went missing.

Ask the seller to do the same from their end.

Q.) When should you contact the post office?

A.) The moment you have a question during normal business hours.

Was it really that hard?

I had USPS lose a package of Cisco 7960 phones - $800 worth a few years ago. Buyer on ebay messaged me asking why he hadent received them yet then filed a case on me - ironicaly the next day USPS sends me a package with the tops of the box in a envelope and asks me to file a insurance claim. Man, was that a hassle. Took 3 weeks to straighten it out, with ebay up my ass on wanting their money since they reimbursed the buyer, saying I had no proof they was lost.

Yikes they lost the phones but had the tops to the boxes??

I let this go a bit longer because of the hurricane we had but I figured they stopped it in Baton Rouge, LA because of the storm but the weeks after I was like Ok.. whats going on.

Funny, I wonder what would of happened if I did not call USPS and ask for a trace on the package?

Yeah, the US postal inspectors found the top of the box, and that was all that was left. I still think its fishy to this day.. they was at the guys local post office, but wasent delivered, then he sends me a message on ebay saying he hadent received them and I receive those box tops?

Thank god I bought insurance on them!

I had a check missing once. Postmaster was sure they had delivered it (small local office), turned out, after I persisted, that the envelope had slipped into a spot that was some sort of never never land, and they discovered it. Meantime, I needed the check!
