Can I check the status of my ebay purchase?
Yes, Unsold. Sold. Bidding time, Won, Etc. As per Transit... You must know who has sent it... UPS, Fedex, USPS, If you can get a tracking number from the sender, you can go to ups dot com, usps dot com, fedex dot com, etc etc...
Once there, they all have links to view a tracking order, or track a package. This depending on which service is used to send it, will show either the last destination w/ time of such, or current location and ETA (Estimated Time Of Arrival) Or BOTH.
Depends on which services that you use. They also have a page that you can go to, to properly use their site.
