    I shipped a pair of shoes on May 28th, and the only (and last update) I got when I track it on USPS website is:

    May 29, 2014 , 1:48 am

    Depart USPS Sort Facility


    MERRIFIELD, VA 22081

    Your item departed our MERRIFIELD, VA 22081 sort facility on May 29, 2014 at 1:48 am. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

    Does that mean it has been held by the customs for two weeks now? Or should I just disregard USPS tracking info?

    Need more info...where did you ship it to/from, what service did you use? Unless you used express mail or registered mail, shipping international is a huge gamble as there is no sure fire way to get tracking updates from my experience.

    Have you tried using http://www.trackitonline.ru/

    Shipped from DC, chose the cheapest option (priority mail I believe)

    I've bought about 5 tie lots on ebay. For each lot, they've either

    A. Been packaged really well, but full of frays and snags that weren't in the photos
    B. Would have been in great shape, but the seller jammed them all in a way-too-small box/bag.

    From DC to ?????

    Not trying to pull teeth but if you want correct information you need to supply all the details of the shipment.

    Wipe down shell, then brush a little bit. Depending on what C&J shell you might have flakey finish so you don't want to treat them like Aldens. After brushing apply reno if you have it or a similar cleaner / conditioner. I find reno just dries out C&J shell more but if you are selling them it doesn't matter as it should make shoe look a little better. If you have cordovan creme or VSC that also works a little bit better. Could help a bit more if I saw shoe condition. Also maybe add some edge dressing if sole edges need it

    My fucking mailman sucks!!!!!

    Always leaves packages that are in plain sight on my porch and yet I'll get emails from USPS saying they were picked up.

    This is at least the 4th time.

    If I purchased a label directly from usps.com (not via eBay or PayPal), and I don't use it, will it eventually be voided and I'll be refunded? I know you can void thru eBay shipping but cannot find any such link or info on usps.com, and I can't eat the cost of an unused label on this one.

    I think you can void it within 24 (or 48?) hours. I'm guessing you made an account on USPS before purchasing the label. In your activity history, you should see the labels you've created. I'm 100% sure I've seen the option to void it within a certain time frame under <Actions> in the Transaction Details. If you're not seeing the link to void, perhaps the time window has passed.

    Leave some cookies with a "thanks for all the hard work" note next time, I'm sure s/he will double check in the future to grab them.
