I mailed an audiobook on 7/14, and the DC events have not been updated at all.  It doesn't even say 'Electronic shipping info received'.  All it has is the USPS DC#.  When I look up that number in the usps website, it says there is no record?  Anyone know what is going on? 

On another note, I have a separate book I mailed out 7/11 to CA, it got to CA on 7/18 and as of last night its back in NJ where I live??  Is that most likely b/c of postage due?

I've mailed over 100 books with DC and have never had a problem.

Jackie,

I had the same problem. I mailed 5 books on 7/20. Two of them were not updated at all until 7/22 where I finally got the "Electronic shipping info received'. I thought that was always updated immediately through the online system and had nothing to do with being scanned at the local post office. Maybe they had a glitch in their computer system?? The other 3 books have been updated as they have been delivered and/or gone through major distribution centers.

Blessings,

Christina

The very few times I had the "no record" show up, it was because I made a typo while inputting the DC number. Could this be what's happening with you?

Sophia,

Good suggestion, but not the case with me, I just click on the number in the email generated when the DC was created online. I've also tried the cut and paste method on the USPS website, same result.
