eBay is misquoting transit times on USPS Parcel Select. They are shorting the time by at least 2 business days.

This seems to be an ongoing problem. USPS is delivering approx half of my packages late. Ebay represents the USPS "estimate" as more than a VERY rough estimate of when things will arrive. Lying seems to be a way of life for them...

I don't ship parcel select, but I've had media mail (which typically takes about a week) listed as GUARANTEED delivery ONE business day after my handling time. Also, TUBES take WAY longer than other packages, but USPS/eBay don't consider that.

Which service is "parcel select?" They change the names so much it's hard to keep track! Is this what we used to call "parcel post?" If so, I find it's not worth using; better go FedEx if it's ground anyway.

Volvo351, Yes, Parcel Select is the ReBranding of Parcel Post. I hold the belief that it ONLY still exists to allow Discouunt to MASSIVE mail-order sellers like AMAZON as it is one that CAN be negotiated 'way down in COST. Often $higher than Priority
