I work for the USPS and Priority Mail is never posted on the website as delivered or not. Priority Mail only means the package will be delivered in 3 to 5 business days. Usually in just 3 days.

Now, if you purchased a Delivery Confirmation along with the Priority Mail, then you can type that confirmation number at the site and only then will you be able to see if it has been delivered or not.

And USPS updates the website automatically every night, as the bar codes are scanned durring the day (delivery) its then Downloaded into the system that same night which updates the website information.

hope this helps

We sent our application to USCIS CSC office on May 30 through Certified Mail. I'm tracking online whether it's been delivered and USPS website says there's no record of such item. Do I need to wait 3 days (from date of mailing) before I check again? All application are sent to a PO Box, would someone sign for it though?

thanks.

when mailing by priority mail i would always suggest to get the delivery confirmation. You will be able to track it online. I know it is too late now but maybe call the service center to check and make sure it has been received.

Certified Mail has to be signed for, A representative of the P.O. Box location will have to sign for it And then its scanned and downloaded that night. Since you mailed it out on the 30th, I would think youd have some kind of answer Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully.

Check here but in order to send via First Class Mail, your package has to weigh 13oz or less. There are specifics for whatever service you want at www.usps.com

It;s not just Priority Mall, it is USPS in general. It all sucks. Nothing works, even the Corporate Office does nothing in help. USPS is the WORST shipping process known to man. I prefer UPS. When they say priority mall, they mean priorty mall, and they give you excellent help with anything. USPS SUCKS!!!
