I just dropped off a package (prepaid priority mail with insurance) 6 hours ago and it keeps saying "No tracking information found. Please verify your tracking number and try again later".

I forgot to ask them to scan it there and give me a receipt to prove that I dropped it off there. I read that if theres no proof that I dropped off, then insurance will not cover. I start to worry now. I remember in the past I dropped off a package and at night it got updated. But this time, it has not so I am wondering if this happens regularly with usps? Am I worrying too soon?

I think you should be fine. Give it a day or two. In past similar use to happen to me when someone sends me a package. Tracking number is there, but nothing to be tracked. If you don't see anything tomorrow then go back and ask them. . .

Yeah I'd give it a day or two, takes a little bit for it to get updated/uploaded in the system.

Ditto.  I've had USPS packages show that they were at the receiving post office for two or three days, and then suddenly they are at a transfer site, and the next day delivered.

The Lord and USPS have a lot in common.

Thanks guys. I was pancking too soon. Mainly because the postal workers there were very rude and ignorant. I got there with my package and before I could drop it off, I took my phone out to snab shot the label on the package, one of them gave me a dirty look and said "no picture inside the post office. Take it outside!" And then they ignored me like I was there to bug them by turning their back on me.

Anyways, I am glad the package got scanned and said its in transit to its destination.

I gave up trying to use tracking. Different postal authorities use differing coding systems. I found that the packages arrived before I could track them down. Security through insurance is usually worth the cost though. I know it's a bit late now, but always ask for a receipt.

I've found that the tracking pass-off from other national postal services to be excellent. I just bought a model from a seller in China, and took the tracking number they posted to eBay into the USPS system, and asked for e-mail updates. System worked perfectly. Got an e-mail today which showed they tried to deliver it but it required an authorized signature (I hate that!), so I'll sign the pink form and it will be on the porch tomorrow when I get home from work.

Not if you live in a small town, and know the postal route guy by the first name, and are famous due to all the packages you get, almost on a daily basis, from all over the world.

The pink slip went in the mailbox this morning, the flag's up, and there will be a box from China on the front porch when I get home tonight.
