"Origin Post Is Preparing Shipment"

bklynstar555 — Okay so granted it's a Monday, but since Saturday my shipment from M has showed "Status: Origin Post is Preparing Shipment." I googled and I see some stuff indicating that this is a potential problem with customs... then I read on here about M's stuff getting seized etc...

So, anyone else ordered from Mexico etc. and is that status normal? I know USPS sucks when it comes to tracking updates, but I am getting a little nervous...

I placed my order on the 14th, I got an update from M saying it shipped on the 18th... Thanks

That has happened to me with packages coming from family living in europe. It shows that message right up to the day the package is delivered to me. I guess UPS doesn't update that information as fast as they do with domestic shipments.

Unfortunately, their tracking information is not up to date.

stargazer — Are you putting in just the numbers?  I think that is all you need.  Sandie is right, usps is slow to update sometimes.....

Peaches — Well now...I'm getting this message at usps now and taking it as a good sign since it's the first time there is a message there...hoping to get them by the 2nd since it will be 2 weeks to the day.  At least I hope so...I'm putting back on the pounds slowly that I've worked so hard to lose.  Dang diet clinic don't want me no more and I really don't understand why..except for the fact that my bmi is 27...oh well I could get on a soap box but I won't...hope everyone has a great evening...me?  I'm fighting the urge to eat everything in site...sighhhhhhhhhhh

JeniBear — You guys really dont have to worry, if you dont receive anything just email them they will make things right with you. I know they always have with me and others here.
Remember not to ever charge back if you can really help it, M is very good about making you happy and not getting a CB.

Peaches — Thanks for the replies everyone and I'll keep my chin up and see what happens...I wasn't going to do a charge back and would contact them first.
Thanks again!

bklynstar555 — Noticed a change in my USPS status today, apparently it arrived here in NY on the 26th so I guess the system is just slow. I should get it soon. Maybe today? Hope so, because I'm not a fan of the ECA stack... makes me feel kinda icky. (But that's another thread)

Hi Peaches and BrklynStar55.  I have the same status from USPS.  It arrived in LA on 8/26...it still shows it is there.
I called USPS and they said it is stuck in customs until they release it for delivery.
