    It means the originating postal system hasn't transferred it to the USPS yet. Edited to add: if it's heading for NY, that may be cause for delay.

  3. Ok Thank you.

  4. I have the same deal since Oct. 25th on one shipment and 26th on another. Both typically go through NY. It will pop up, just got to be patient with all thats going on in NY. When I have mail go through MIA, I have that message for just 2-3 days.

  5. I have had the same message since friday.I checked it again this morning said the same thing. How long does it typically take international air mail to get here?Another ? is Origin Post is Preparing Shipment message means it already passed customs?

    Hurricane Sandy might delay things.
    OPPS means it's sitting there or could be on the way.
    There are many posters who have said they received
    while it still said OPPS. Registered mail especially.

    I had a letter from GB sent on Oct 25. Tracking via USPS had it in the origin preparing status until Monday - Nov 5. At that point, tracking said it was processed through NY on Sat Nov 3, yet that info was not entered until Monday. The next update had it taking a detour through Ohio. It arrived yesterday. Point of this story is that USPS tracking doesn't tell the whole story and is updated sporadically. Hang in there.

  11. Just called the post office to check on my shipment apparently it has been in customs since nov. 2. Is this a bad sign since customs has had it for 6 days and had not released it? she said it could take 30-45 days. When I was told 7-14 business days by the vendor.

    7-14 would probably the "normal" or ideal shipping time. I had customs hold a pack for nearly 2 months. If your packs must travel through POE on the East coast, expect delays from Sandy and nor'easter as this is dampening efforts at getting power back in NY and NJ. I have packs that haven't even left the origin due to Sandy for over a week now, and now nor'easter will probably delay things further.

    @tram: have you tried tracking the package on packagetrackr.com (yes, it is spelled without the final 'e')? That site can usually show you exactly when the country you are ordering from passed the package to the US postal service. It's quite normal, once the package is given to the US, for it to sit at "origin post" for a week or two.

    May I add a tiny piece of advice, since you are new to the site? You do a great job of thanking folks who respond to your posts, and this is very thoughtful and polite of you. My advice is: if you find these posts truly helpful, don't be afraid to hit the "rate helpful" button at the bottom of the person's post. That's the customary way of showing someone you appreciate a post here! It also helps the person to reach senior status (if they aren't there already).

    Good luck, and please let us know when your package updates!

    Packagetrackr says this the tracking data on this shipment has not been updated in more than 10 business days by US Postal Service. Please contact US Postal Service for more information.

  18. Was it shipped Express Mail or registered Mail. USPS tracking is much better with Express Mail.

    The data that is pulled by packagetrackr for the OPPS update on the tracking history is date stamped 12/31/69 04:00 pm, thus the 10 days old error message. The tracking at boxoh gives that date in the information.
