Default PayPal Not releasing my funds, USPS Tracking down

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone here noticed that USPS tracking is not working, it has been like this for 2 weeks now,

Paypal is not realizing my funds either so not sure if this would have something to do with it. It's been 6 days since all my items were delivered and the payments are still saying pending.

should i call them?

You might be able to call and get the funds manually released.

But USPS tracking is working just fine. Stalled shipments relatively low for me recently.

Im not seeing any issues with my USPS deliveries either... tracking working fine for me.
Might want to look into this as it seems it is possibly an issue on your end.

your tracking number is maybe wrong, if usps was down since 2 weeks, this forum would have only threads about that

I checked several tracking numbers on usps.com yesterday, and had no problems.

Is your tracking number 22 numbers?

Sounds to me like an invalid tracking number. Maybe you made a typo.

This is something I've been complaining about for a while already on various different topics..

I can attest to this also... USPS has been a mix of up and down without warning. They've been doing a lot of maintenance on the system, and the tracking seems to only work certain times in the day. This has been causing Paypal's automated system to fail; once it misses the timeline / release due to maintenance it seems to miss it completely. In fact, this has been so bad of a problem, that literally they have had to refund the transaction fee several times because of these simple service failures.

It appears this is why the funds are not releasing properly, and I've had to ask them to release it manually several times already (it's been 5 days since item delivered). Unfortunately, there has been nothing but more delays.

Paypal keeps saying to wait 24 hours (hopefully so the system kicks in), but nothing happens; you really have to keep pushing them to release it manually repeatedly until they do. That's the ONLY thing that has worked in my case.

Maybe you two are both in the same region of USA?

I would hear from my customers if their tracking numbers weren't working, and I haven't noticed any increase in complaints..

Same problem here, item was delivered on Thursday, and as of today, still pending until the 24th.

And the sale was just for $20.

It is 3-4 days AFTER delivery funds get released. You simply need to wait a day or two most likely.

Thes other people are saying USPS does not show delivery at all....

Maybe my account is lucky, but I usually get the funds released the next day after delivery, I never had to wait the 3-4 days.
