Priority Mail with Tracking
« on: April 03, 2012, 12:55:30 PM »
I wondering how much extra will tracking cost and whether or not tracking is included with priority mail?  Some websites only charge the price of the priority mail which is 5.50$ but still give you a tracking number so I'm a bit confused.

This is a good question to take to your local post office.  Either show up with a package ready, or call them and ask.

I think it would be about one dollar extra to get a tracking number. 

But I hardly ever bother to buy one (a tracking number).  I like waiting for packages and not knowing which day it will come, and also the suspense of possibly getting hit by lightning/the package not arriving.  But worriers will worry, and the tracking number really does help some people.

If you are doing a sale or trade with someone and you are mailing your end ALWAYS get delivery confirmation/tracking. Its the only way to prove that the person got the package. Otherwise they can claim they never got it and you are screwed.

First of all, are you in the US and are you shipping to somewhere else in the US? If so it should only cost an extra 85 cents to add delivery confirmation. That doesnt mean your whole cost is going to be 85 cents, the actual shipping cost depends on the weight of your package and how far it has to go. You will find that out when you go the the post ofiice. Once you know that amount you will add 85 cents to get the total amount including the Delivery Confirmation. Its not really tracking, it just confirms that the item was indeed successfully delivered to the recipient.

If you have a Click-N-Ship account Delivery Confirmation is included free with your shipping costs.

Or easier, get first class shipping with tracking. It rarely exceeds 2 bucks, and gets to the destination in the same time. Tracking included.
