U.S. Customs Forms Now Track Packages

Insurance from U.S. to other countries is prohibitive, but I just found out today that U.S. customs forms actually track your packages all the way to the destination. There's actually a tracking number. So, if the package gets lost or the person claims they never received the package, you have proof. It won't cover the cost, but at least you have some trackable info.

This only works for Priority International packages (the customs paper work that starts with CP). It does not work on First Class International (the one that starts with LC). Go to www.usps.com and their home page has a box that says "Track and Confirm" type your CP????????US # in this area and click "Go". It does work...it's track it from all the US stops, to the port, to their customs and even tell you when it went out to delivery. This does help...they buyers are sooo much more understanding when they see the package is there as opposed to not knowing anything. It's saved us on many, many occasions!
