A seller send me an item via USPS and emailed me saying it was send on Fri with USPS RCT # 7007***************

I tried tracking this 20 digit number on usps site and it says couldn't find it.

1) Is this 20 digit number just a delivery confirmation number?
2) The number starts with 7007 ? Does it mean address label was printed online?
3) What does RCT stand for ?

Thx

Don't know. Delivery confirmation number is 20 digits. Insurance numbers are also 20 digits but don't show up online. They may have given you the wrong number or it has not been entered in the system yet.

Why this is happening per USPS message is - "Event information may not be available if your item was mailed recently. Please try again later."

Probably printed, but not mailed or not scanned when mailed.

The Bozo above me is right.

Thanks. So you are saying the 700*** series represents online shipping label ? Does this often happen with USPS that they dont scan this until when delivered.

It is for 'DELIVERY CONFIRMATION, most of the time it is not scanned until it is actually delivered.

RCT = receipt
