    When you order merchandise, do you care if package tracking is available once your package has shipped?

    Do you actually look at the tracking information?

    Always? Or just if you think the package is late/overdue?

    Just wondering what most people do...

    I use the tracking if it seems overly long in delivery. Otherwise, I don't use it.

    Ditto and I also use it if I need it quick.

    I don't usually check the tracking. I guess I would if there was a problem of it not showing up in a timely manner.

    I only look if A- I am EXTREMELY BORED, or B- the package is later than I expected.

    I use it more for laughs than anything. Packages seem to take the strangest routes to get here. Other than that I'd never check unless a package was overdue.

    I rarely check the tracking (except for my secret pal package). I know about how long it takes to get something here from the US and don't begin to wonder unless it is past 3 weeks. In all the years I have been buying from the US I have only ever had 1 package not show up!

    The majority of my packages are shipped Priority which has free delivery confirmation. I like it as I get an e-mail when the package is delivered which as the date & time delivered. And if there is a problem, I can see the tracking from my door to wherever it's last stop was.

    As a seller, I always want tracking. I have been burned more than once by someone trying to say they never received something. At least with tracking and delivery confirmation, I have a leg to stand on.

    As a buyer, I appreciate it but don't always monitor it.

    UPS and FedEx I do look at frequently to make sure something hasn't gottne delayed. USPS tracking most of the time seems like a waste. They dont always update so sometimes something has been delivered before its ever updated. I know I got it (if i'm at work) but I dont know where it has "been". :)

    I like tracking but only look it up if there is a delay.

    It's nice to be able to track a package, especially if it is something expensive or something I would not want left at my door. I do not have much overhang at my front door so packages get wet if left in the rain.

    I'm most concerned about tracking when I'm the one sending the package. It's comforting to know that what I sent arrived as planned.
