    An eBay complaint

    I dunno why they do it, it annoys the crap outta me.... Why does eBay mark items shipped just because a label has been made? I don't track every item but there are times I do and there will be times when an item was "shipped" and doesn't actually get picked up for two more days. I don't have a solution, I just like to compassion sometimes. Pinnacle of first world problems I think

    They have to start tracking at some point because the tracking numbers are created in the system when label is printed. How else would they do it? They can't rely on the USPS to scan every item into the system. Instead of saying shipped, would it be better to have tracking label created?

    That's what I don't know. I have no clue how eBay and USPS are linked up. It's just a minor irritant but I feel the internet was designed for such minor complaints

    Remember the days when you had to email a seller and ask if he mailed yet? Then ask for a tracking number? Then go to the courier's website? Then click on track package? Then type in the ridiculously long tracking number and hope you didn't enter it wrong?

    Having to figure out that "shipped" actually means "label created" is a fair trade for me.

    I suppose I get the process but at the same time I've had a few outbursts on a Saturday night or Sunday when I get the shipped notification...It hasn't gone anywhere, stop lying to me.

    If they print the label then, no, it's not going anywhere. If they did it Saturday and got it to a Post Office prior to the truck dispatch, it does move Sunday. We don't deliver, but the mail is processed on Sundays.

    or for the next 14 days with all the sellers I seem to be dealing with lately.

    I wish Ebay's system considered the item shipped when USPS accepts the package, not when the seller "creates" a label and takes 2 weeks to mail it.

    You guys know you can scroll your mouse over the tracking # and it will give you updates, right?

    On first class packages I have had occasions where they are never processed until at destination. Never had that happen with priority .

    It's not eBay or Post Office fault that the seller doesn't ship it as soon as the label is printed. When they print the label, it generates a unique shipping number that is then uploaded for you to track. Seller can sit for 3 days before actually sending. What do you want the PO or eBay to do? It does say "label generated and awaiting pickup", "acceptance scan" and such when shipper does actually receives it. So they are actually doing all they can. They can't control actions of the seller.
