I ordered something online and they used UPS Basic. UPS basic is when they transfer it to USPS for finally delivery. Well on USPS website it says its out for Delivery. I wasn't home when mailman came but they already did and yet no package. The status says out for delivery. Is it lost or will it be delivered tomorrow. Anyone had similar situation happen?

UPDATE: Package came the next day

UPS and the postal service are two different things.

What do you mean lost? These things don't get lost. Call them.

What clothier did you order from? USPS has absolutely useless tracking. They will show things as being in transit a week or more after delivered.

Its UPS Basic where they drop it off at post office and the mailman does final delivery.

Sounds like your mailman helped himself to a nice gift then.

This. Sometimes the status won't even be updated until it's at your doorstep.

Did you get Basic Remote or Basic Urban? It took an entire 7 seconds of googling to find this:
* Basic Remote is for rural areas. UPS picks up the package from the shipper and delivers it to your local post office. The US Postal Service then handles final delivery to your home.
* Basic Urban is for more populated areas. With this service, UPS handles both the package pickup and final delivery to the customer.

hahaha :lol:

To OP- Just give it another day maybe. If you don't get it within the next time the mailman/woman dilivers your package, call them.

Depends, usually they give you a pink note to write your request to deliver again or pick it up at the post office. This is why, I hate usps they wont drop it off unless there is a person at present, and I mean my neighborhood is relatively safe except and the only thing they steal around here is sound systems :P (yes they break into your car for your subwoofer/headunit but not your car).

All in all, Ill pay extra just to have fedex or ups deliver.

If it says out for delivery, it means it hasn't arrived yet. I've gotten packages as late as 8 pm. Just give it a couple of days.

My neighborhood has one of those package mailboxes. I did get another package and the other slot was taken aswell. Maybe there wasn't room but I did not see a pink slip. But yeah I hate USPS. I would had paid a lil more for it to be UPS ground instead of UPS basic but every place doesn't let u choose unless its 2nd day air. No UPS ground or USPS option. Either one of the other By the way awesome dat u have SNSD in ur sig. The are so cute
