So I bought a purse from eBay from a very reputable seller. I paid for it on September 3rd and I received an email through Google checkout on Sept 5th that it is being shipped. Well, it is now Sept 12 (7 days after) and the USPS website has not been updated at all! I get the following message: Status: Electronic Shipping Info Received The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on September 5, 2008 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later. So i emailed the seller to find out what was going on and I get this message from her: Hi, Once again, this is normal. It will update once you recieve it. Thanks First of all, I'm not sure why she says "once again". That would imply I've asked her this question before which I havn't. And second of all, I have never heard of tracking not updating until I receive the package!!! I mean isnt that the whole point of tracking, to see where the package is?! I have another tracking# from another purse I bought (different seller) also sent through USPS and it has all the nice little steps it's gone through on it's way to me, in fact it was sent Sept 9th and it's already here at the post office! And it was sent from the same place. Any thoughts? Should I just accept this as a response? I'm not pleased and I feel like she's treating me like some amateur buyer that doesnt know what they are doing. Any advise would be appreciated.
