iFixit.com order tracking isn't updating or found
USPS First-Class and Priority Mail
When the tracking information isn't being updated by USPS as it should be, we understand your frustration in having to wait for the package. Sometimes weather is an issue, and sometimes packages just aren't scanned into the carrier's system at intermediary stops, so it looks like nothing is happening. Other times, it's just the carrier running behind or performing additional transit safety measures based on the contents of the package.
It's not uncommon for USPS to skip package scans when they're running behind in order to allow them to move packages quicker than otherwise since additional scanning also means additional processing time.
We've reached out to USPS to determine how we can better update customers when these types of things happen, but thus far it's still a work in progress. While shipping procedures and delays are out of our control we are determined to make sure you're satisfied.
For more information regarding the alternative shipping methods we offer, please see our Domestic Shipping Options.
USPS First-Class International
USPS First-Class International shipments can take up to 8 weeks to be delivered. They don't always take that long, and they are usually delivered before that time, but we kindly ask that you please wait until at least 6 weeks before contacting us.
It can take quite a bit of time for the shipment to get through Customs as well as get sorted through your local postal carrier. Unfortunately, there is no tracking available for USPS First-Class Mail International packages.
If you see a shipping related number corresponding to the order, it is actually a Customs ID used by UPS within the US until the package reaches the port of export and is handed off to USPS. Once USPS hands off the package to your local carrier, occasionally the Customs ID can reveal the Customs status of the package through your local carrier, but it is not guaranteed.
