    Is it normal for them not to scan the package out for shipment. I have eggs comming from FL shipped Tuesday, and the package has not been scanned once. They should be here today, 3 days in transit.

    Tracking numbers are scanned. Delivery confirmation is where you sign for it.

    Unfortunately, no it's not that unusual for PO's not to scan the packages until it's reached its final destination or is in the truck to be delivered.

    It is not normal for them not to scan when the package was shipped. I am assuming we are talking about priority shipping. I have had a lot of packages that have been scanned at drop off and then no updates until after the eggs are delivered.

    Hope all is well.

    I've had them skip everything except the destination scan with eggs. They are getting more and more lax in their service, unfortunately, even though things still get where they're going most of the time (just maybe not ON time).

    Try using a SCAN form.... this fixes that problem.

    Basically, it associates all the packages you are shipping that day with a number, then they scan the one code, then all the packages say 'Shipment accepted'.

    You can do it using Endicia, Stamps.com, or USPS Click N Ship, but IDK about Paypal.
