What is this USPS tracking mean: "Delivered to Agent"
Posted by: hal
Date: March 12, 2019 05:50PM
I shipped a $1100 ebay item via USPS and it was delivered the other day with the status, "Delivered to Agent for Final Delivery in FORT LAUDERDALE, FL".

It's all 'green' and happy looking as if the package was handed to the recipient.

I have delivered to this person before and the final status was the usual "Delivered" without qualifications.

anyone??

"Agent" could have multiple meanings.

Doorman,

Building / property manager,

"Authorized neighbor",

Someone the local delivery driver likes,

Scam artist who plans on ripping you off.

How were you paid? Can those funds be rescinded / canceled?

Did an actual person sign for this delivery?

Exactly what service did you pay USPS to perform?

Did you insure the shipment?

If the "buyer" is out to scam you, you may have a serious problem.

I've got paypal coverage - I'm ok. I always ship 'signature required'. I just got the proof of delivery, I got the signature and the name and address is correct - I suspect that the carrier just entered the wrong code.

60 TENDERED TO AGENT FOR FINAL DELIVERY
The item has been delivered to an agent of the residence or institution to where it has been addressed (college, hospital, condominium, etc.).

You're welcome, hal. Hopefully your customer will have the package by tomorrow!

Whoops, I see they already have. Congrats.

When I have packages sent to me at work, they are delivered to the company mailroom and received/signed for by someone there. Those packages show up on tracking as "Delivered to Agent."
