    In my opinion, USPS Priority has been fine for the most part. If you're paying for a premium service, it's still getting from place to place pretty efficiently. I wish sellers would get away from Media Mail until this all resolved. It's worth the extra five bucks to get your package to it's destination in a timely manner. Just build the price for priority into your selling price and explain why. Most buyers would prefer that, IMO.

    And yet, here we are, a month past the holidays and it’s gotten no better.

    Sure it is. I just checked my outgoing eBays and things are flying through the system as would be expected. Most are upgraded to first class and other than those shipped in the last couple days, everything is delivered. One media mail is well on its way, hitting Florida in 5 days but still pending delivery. This is entirely normal.

    I have an incoming media mail that should arrive today. If so, that's 8 days which again is not far off of what I would expect.

    Heck, even a CD that shipped on 12/8 that got stuck...

    This is one I expected to eat and would have been the only refund I'd have had to issue due to all of the postal issues. Never heard a peep from this buyer which led me to think that it might have been delivered but not scanned at any point at the end of the journey.

    So despite some frustrations and concern, all turned out well. No complaints here. In fact, congrats to USPS for getting through this.

    I’m waiting for 4 orders that haven’t moved locations since last week. One hasn’t moved since January 8th.

    Sorry to hear that. Maybe I'm lucky. I'm luckier than most it seems when it comes to damaged jewel cases or vinyl from what I can tell.

    Perhaps it is a local issue? Hard to tell your location, USA is such a large place.

    I'm encountering some consternation with U P S.

    Just made a purchase for some gear and the buyer submitted the box for shipment days ago, but the UPS site still shows no update and no estimate for delivery date.

    USPS has been fine lately....for me.

    You mean UPS did the initial scan and no updates? If there's no initial scan, I'd question whether the seller actually dropped it off.
