ciao guys, just a simple question on the several delivery options offered by USPS: which are the overseas option with tracking?
afaik, airmail letter post shouldnt have this option...
but airmail parcel post seems it has it: i got an email yesterday with a tracking number of a parcel sent with this option...  :?

...and what about global priority? from the USPS website description it seems there's no tracking on it... is it true?

final question: in order to be completely sure to get an item, what option should i use?

tnx and ciaooo

USPS Global Priority is only trackable until it leaved the US.
USPS Global Express is trackable in the UK on Parcel Force's website after it leaves the US. Global Express carries a code which is trackable in about 80% of developed countries. Practically the whole of Europe, but I don't believe Australia follows the international format codes yet.

There is no sort of guaranteed tracking of any sort for international packages except for Global Express.

However, all packages  have a customs form on it.  This has a variable, non-guaranteed trackability.  Sometimes it will only show info for the U.S. - some countries have complete trackability (even registering delivery), however it is nothing that is purchased or for certain.

What? There are codes? We don't follow codes or rules. We like to live on the edge. :lol:  :wink:

Wow, in Australia there must be a whole different meaing to the term,

I wonder what an M-Bag is in Oz!   8O
