eBay’s Global Shipping Program. Who delivers the item?

eBay’s Global Shipping Program. Who delivers the item?

I am from Australia and have a delivery issue. I purchased an item from the USA in Jan 13 and under the Global Shipping Program set up by eBay

The items are sent in two stages assisting in protecting Sellers great idea but with some issue’s I feel.

My Item has 2 tracking numbers associated with it, the first is the internal USPS tracking number (9405s-exs-exs-exs-ex**9271) used to get it from point of lodgement to a international sort facility in the US, once it is received at the sort facility the sellers obligation is fulfilled under the terms of the global shipping program and the item shows as delivered quote “Delivered January 25, 2013, 8:51 am ERLANGER, KY 41018 USPS Tracking / Delivery Confirmation™”.

From this facility the item was given another global tracking number (UPAABs-exs-exs-ex**3292) and from here who knows what happens because the tracking number does’t show on the USPS or Australia Post tracking systems yet when tracked on eBay it says it’s “In Transit with Destination Carrier, Feb-07-13, 08:48 AM, BELMONT EAST, 6104″ and has been the same for the past 7 days.

When contacting the post office indicated they don’t have the parcel and they are not my delivery post office. So the question is who is the destination carrier if it’s not Australia Post? And where is my item? The agreement says Pitney Bowes but they don’t from my search deliver mail nor track items.Regards Murray

 Answer for eBay’s Global Shipping Program. Who delivers the item?

Best answer:

I just had my first international package delivered today using the new system.

I noticed that it seemed to lay for two days in Erlanger (my local distribution point) according to the tracking. However, it then begin moving again on Tuesday and was delivered Today in Canada.

The tracking number should follow through all the way to your door. I would allow a couple of days for it to be processed, repackaged, relabeled, customs filled out, customs paid, etc before expecting it to be on the move again. I would think once it starts moving again it should arrive in about three days or so.

I really like the new program, and so should you. You know exactly what customs fees are due and pay them up front. No more packages being held up at customs, at least normally. And eBay themselves are responsible for getting you your package once it reaches the center.

I like it because it is a domestic sale for me, once it arrives at Erlanger (Cincinnati Ohio Airport facility) I am in the clear. If I ship next day and it arrives within four days to the center I get automatic 5’s on shipping time and charges, etc. If the package is lost, damaged, stolen, or never delivered eBay takes the heat, not me.

Yes, you pay what seems to be a little more, but those are the charges you would have to pay once the package arrives anyway as I understand it. Plus, there is a small brokerage fee based on the item, and package to process it through customs.

May I suggest you check the number again tomorrow? It may show the package on the move again then.

Mine read thusly (I have four more in transit now)

go to boxoh.com past the tracking number there.. probably beacuse it is using another shipping method which boxoh can automatically detect the shipping company by the tracking number.
