only between the sender and the shipping service, and that contract is not fulfilled until it is successfully delivered. While it can be annoying in some scenarios like misdelivery, the recipient really has no business with the shipping service. Only the sender is responsible for delivery issues for these reasons.
Without any insurance? You are responsible for the loss. It's best to let the shipper file for the loss.
If someone sent a coin as a letter, US customs are supposed to return it. If it’s a parcel, there should always be tracking info available.
I just received a parcel from China and another from South Korea.
Although both had tracking there was no way for me to follow them.
But they both came through the mail quickly.
The South Korean I wasn't worried about; it was from a seller who I've dealt with several times in the past.
It was the Chinese package that made me nervous, but no problem.
By “you” do you mean the seller or buyer?
I do. I tracked from the shipper in Germany. It has been in America for two weeks. I check the tracking each day and it just says that it is being prepared for shipping by the originating postal facility..... I think the postal service in America has lost it.
Or it's hung up in customs.
The buyer is usually the one that loses out as they are the one that determines if they want any insurance or not.
That's what it would say if customs has it on hold. Customs can hold International parcels, regardless of size, for as long as it pleases them. I had one customer where the parcel was held up for 3 1/2 months.
How true. And it is not just shipments from abroad. An item from Oregon to the East Coast has been in transit with USPS for a month. How can it be that it takes that long (or longer) to receive something.
Now that's a problem. You need to go in person and only speak to a member of management, preferably the postmaster.
Unless that's media mail or registered that is stuck for some reason that package is lost.
Not true; insurance is for the protection of the sender, not the recipient. eBay policies (and many laws I would imagine) put the responsibility on the seller until the buyer has the item in their hand. If it's lost, it's the seller's loss, not the buyer's; the buyer is still entitled to a full refund if they don't receive the item, even if the loss is not the seller's fault.
