I got green card in mail 8 days after the decision email.

Next day after CPO the email received that USPS picked up the card.

2 days later it was delivered.

You may or may not get email updates.

Do NOT rely on other posters experiences. I have seen some people report that they got 3 or 4 emails

in one day (CPO + Decision Made + Card Picked Up + Decision Made), but in your case it may be different.

I had zero updates for a week, from DM and until CPO.

You are approved and your card was ordered into production. Just relax and wait. You will get it soon.

Congratulations and welcome to America!

I check online and the I still seeing it at the same stage no card production as yet

You might have missed one. The first change we got after our interview was "card production" but it didn't stay there long before it changed to "Decision". Eventually there was a second card production notice.

What stage is yours at?

In my case Decision was emailed first (I have e-case notification, so each change in status was instantly emailed to my inbox and texts saved) and it stayed the same for the next 8 days. Then it changed to CPO , then back to Decision then CPO again (after last change to CPO it was still updated twice, once when USPS picked up the card and later when it was reported delivered).

Not all applicants have the same case notification pattern, timing is also not the same. Some people get CPO/DM/CPO the same day and a card in box two days later. Others don't get any updates at all, just notification and GC in mail. Others, like myself, may get DM > CPO > DM > CPO. As notice says, wait 30 days for your WN and Card in mail. If you don't get it after 30 days then it's time for SR.

Good luck.

I understand. The thing is it's impossible to predict when will you get the actual card. It may be delivered to you today, tomorrow, day after tomorrow or later.

They have 30 days after decision to order your card. So it may be ordered at anytime from decision notice date through 30 days after it.

Good news I got the email today they ordered production of the card so I should have it by Monday

You'll probably get at least one more notification that they mailed it and get it a few days after that.

Congratulations!
