Hi
I have ordered an item of a site, and they are shipping using USPS,
and they have given me an USPS tracking Number, has anyone had anything delivered using USPS, if so do you know which postal service they use once item arrives in Ireland, as I live an apartment with secuirty gates, and I am wary of not being in, and the courier service not having access to leave me a note. Post Office have access to through security gates, but no other service does.
Also is the USPS trackin number also valid with the other courier/postals service, or is the seperate one, which I need to get from USPS

Thanks

Sean

USPS is the American version of An Post (i.e. their national mail carrier) so AFAIK it'll come to this end through An Post. I've never had anything from them that was delivered via any other means, always through An Post, never a courier.

yeah it should come via An Post and you can track the item once it's in Ireland through here.

There is no problem, it not working is normal!

Mine usually only works after I have recieved the item. USPS are usually very good.

If it's registered An Post add their own registered label when it gets to Ireland.

The USPS site is dead slow for tracking things - seems to get updated well after the fact.

7 - 12 days at this time of year.

Yes you will get charged by customs

about 4% duty unless a taric number / exact description is attached + 21% vat on combined cost of computer + cost of shipping + duty (if applied) + €6 an post fee.

So if computer was $500, shipping was $50 and duty is 4% the approx total will be €120 due to an post.

I use USPS a lot and their tracking number details gets updated on their own website. You really shouldn't have to go to An Post to check their tracking. I usually find their tracking info up to date even with in Ireland.

Edit: Just to add when your parcel hits customs the USPS tracking wont update until it leaves customs. so there could be a few days of no update if your parcel is stuck in Customs. Customs hit and miss as well with their turnover of parcels.

I am having the same problem with USPS shipment to Dublin. My item was shipped two weeks ago (6th July) from USPS New York to Dublin on a priority shipment.Track # has not been updated since last week and am wondering why I am yet to get my delivery.I checked the anpost track system but they don't have any record of my parcel.
Anyone know why I am yet to receive my parcel after two weeks of shipment? I will appreciate your response.
