How to find my tracking number?

How to use USPS Tracking: Once you enter the tracking number of an item(s) into the USPS Tracking website, you can review the latest status of that item. Depending on the status, origin and destination, and the class and services of the item, you may be able to take a number of different actions if available. You can find the item’s tracking history and see what kind of services and features are associated with it. You can request emails and/or text messages about your item or a Proof of Delivery email. You can also leave instructions for the carrier on where to leave your mailpiece if no one is available to accept it.
How to receive automatic notifications:
If you have item’s tracking number, enter it at the USPS Tracking website. If available, click “Text & Email Updates” to expand that section and follow the directions. Also, the USPS Text Tracking has detailed directions on requesting notifications by only sending a text message to 28777 (2USPS). Email and text update requests are active for a period of 2 weeks following the request. After that time, the request will be closed. Once the item is delivered, you won’t receive further notifications.
I’m not receiving any notification emails or texts: You may not receive any updates or status emails or texts if there are no new shipment updates or the email address entered was incorrect. To be certain that you are experiencing an issue, visit the USPS Tracking page and enter the tracking number. If no new event information is available, then there would be no messages for USPS to send. If there is new event information and you haven’t received it, then try submitting another notification request. If you requested email notifications and are having problems, also try looking in your spam/junk mail folder. If enabled, the junk mail should be checked to ensure emails from the Postal Service are allowed.
