It makes me suspicious that they aren't really based in the U. One time I bought an item from a seller clearly "based in the U. I know sellers are not required to providie a tracking number, so why lie about it??
As I said, eBay sends it, not the seller. The seller will then take the package to the post office, a drop box, or a mail carrier will pick it up. That might be the same day or the next day, maybe two days. It is not going to get scanned until it is handled at the post office.
Personally I don't use eBay shipping, I use another postage company, so I send out the tracking numbers to my buyers myself, and they don't get a false shipment notice from eBay. Some of those buyers get the package before the 48 hours have passed! When an ebay seller generates a label, it says that a label has been created, NOT that the item has been shipped.
I'm used to Chinese sellers providing a non-working tracking number on their shipments. Actually they do work, but it is a matter of hunting down the shippers involved. There are sites to track both Hong Kong, and China Post numbers. However, they only give info up until the item leaves Chinese control. Then there are tracking numbers that give no information until the item arrives in the US, at a fulfillmemt center.
UPS has arrangements with foriegn postal systems, and issue tracking numbers that do just that. The item arrives from China or elsewhere, and the number becomes active after that.

The Package Tracking Scam: What It Is And How To Protect Yourself From It
Naturally I was surprised when I checked the tracking info it said it had been "delivered" 2 days earlier, since I know I never received it.
I called Paypal right away to let them know about this and open a case. They assured me not to worry and that they would give the seller 3 days to prove delivery otherwise it would be closed in my favor. The next day, I was stunned to see an email from Paypal saying they had closed the case in the sellers favor. I called and spent 30 minutes on the phone with FedEx explaining this to them and desperately asking them to help.
A nice lady on the other end took the time to send me an email showing the address that tracking number was actually delivered to, and I called Paypal and provided them with this information for the "appeal". Another strange thing about it is that the name on the package said "To the realtor of" and then the other address. It was an address in my city, state and zip, but not the same street and not the same street numbers. Is there anything more I can do at this point other than wait and just HOPE that Paypal isn't completely incompetent in this matter??
I really cannot for the life of me understand how Paypal could allow such scams to take place. This scamming seller belongs in prison!

You cannot just generate a UPS or any other carrier tracking number and expect them to work. UPS sends customers groups of numbers based on their accounts.
All of thos pre-printed forms you see at UPS and other stores are generated by their own internal tracking database. RocknAug 26, I am not asking for UPS number so that i can make it work.
I just wanted a number so that i can use the number for finding status. I am sure you can get one out of there without them even caring. Tell them you are writing it up at home and bringing it back later.
UPS is in US right. I stay in India.
