Question PO issue- item says delivered but i didn't get it

I bought some items from a WAHM and she shipped as promised (no issue there, Ive bought from her before and will again in the future)...BUT she got DC and it wasn't delivered to me, but is marked delivered! This package was approx $75 of goods...it was "delivered" on the 14th, and I'm 7 weeks prego and in the first trimester coma right now so just realized it'd been a while since I'd paid (for priority) and tracked it last night.

The small PO is closed here today. Should I go in Monday? Will they be able to tell me anything? The address was correct and she shipped off paypal. The city is right on Tracking, but it doesn't show the addy delivered to. I didn't have insurance, but I guess it doesn't matter anyways since it says delivered and I have no package to show for it.

Anyone had this happen? What happened? Did you get your items?

_______
update
No package for me i guess I called Monday, it's been three business days and no one has found my package.

I asked a few questions, so i would know if i was the seller and had this situation arise.

If it was insured, the shipper can file an insurance claim. Since it says delivered, both the shipper and intended receiver must give a sworn statement. Then the case is decided by a different department and she couldn't give any further info (for lack of knowledge). Unfortunately, mine was not.

All they can do is ask ur carrier. I had the same thing happen. I'd just call. Call in the morning, so they can grab the carrier before they leave. Mine was eventually dropped off to me by a neighbor. The carrier of course said he dropped it at my door. Nope. Down the roAd, but a similar number combo.

Re: PO issue

Check my etsy issue thread. I made tons of calls. Ask to speak with the actual carrier. Not just the worker. Be nice but be firm that you want you package found and you will not put up with more incompetence

Re: PO issue

I had a package marked "delivered" once, and it showed up on my doorstep three days later. I've also had the mail carrier leave a note saying they were holding it at the post office for me because I had to sign for the package, but when I got to the post office it had gone back out for delivery and was delivered with no signature anyway! I would definitely talk to someone and have them try to track your package--it may still show up for you!

Re: PO issue

ive had that happen before, only to have the package show up later that day, or days later. I think my mail carrier scans packages as delivered when he puts them on the truck, perhaps thats what your carrier does as well, so it could be in the mail truck still

Re: PO issue

This has happened to me too many times

If i don;t get it by the day after it says delivered...it's gone IME.

I stalked my mail lady the last time and was really mad about the SIX packages that went POOF in the last few months. She said everytime that one went MIA there was a sub...tehn she walked back over to the boxed (we have locked boxes outside in clumps) and opened up the back....the sub put my packages in the box under mine...so that time i got them back..if that was what happened before, those people got my packages and didn't return them

Re: PO issue- item says delivered but i didn't get it

updated- no package for me

I suppose i could ask my neighbors, but i feel like thats the same as saying "hey, i was suppose to get a package a few weeks ago...i was wondering if you got it by mistake and decided not to bring it to me" basically accusing people of stealing

Instead of asking if they got it by mistake could you just ask if they noticed anything that day? Like someone besides your family near your mailbox/porch, wherever it might have been left? I hope you can find it.
