I sold a Balenciaga bag on eBay on 10/25. Buyer BIN'd and paid right away. There were some emails back and forth and I shipped it out the next day (10/26) priority with insurance. I check the tracking a few days later and see this:

I contact the buyer and explain that they need to sign for the package or get it from the post office. They message me back not to worry that they already received the bag and the person loved it. But there have been no further updates with tracking. I'm going to call the PO tomorrow but has this ever happened to someone where the tracking isn't updated but the item was delivered. I'm worried they have the bag and will just say they never received it. If it gets sent back to me, that's fine. I just don't want to be out the money AND the bag.
