There's a big difference between tracking of priority envelopes (which most book orders will use) and boxes. Unfortunately box tracking is much better.
I would anticipate that most people will have their orders for a couple days before USPS tracking ever changes from Picked Up to Delivered.
The tracking number will be more useful for international customers. They should at least see when their order clears customs.
On the plus side, the new USPS envelopes are padded, so your order should have a pretty comfortable journey.
Thanks for the comments. We very much appreciate feeling that we are being kept updated and though about!
