The delivery estimate for your shipment is calculated from the time Chit Chats receives and scans your shipment to when it is delivered to your customer’s address. It’s important to know:

  • Delivery times are always estimated and never guaranteed
  • Estimates are displayed in business days unless otherwise specified


  • U.S. delivery estimates vary for destinations outside of the contiguous United States
    • U.S. territories (i.e. Alaska, Hawaii) delivery can take longer depending on the transportation available as shipments may travel by sea.
    • APO/FPO militray addresses have longer delivery transit times.
  • Canadian remote addresses have longer estimated delivery times  due to limited transportation links.
  • International delivery estimates vary by country and customs clearance can impact transit times.

*USPS First Class International packages are fully tracked if the country of destination is a part of the Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International service (EDELCON).

**Partially tracked shipments mean that there will be no tracking event to confirm delivery. However, your shipment will still receive Chit Chats tracking updates up until it is released to our delivery partner.

Tracking Updates

Shipment tracking will always have the latest updates on your package starting from when Chit Chats processes your shipment. Within one business day after you drop off at one of our branches or drop spots you’ll receive a tracking update letting you know that we’ve processed your shipment at our hub.

Manage your customers’ expectations with our handy guide on tracking shipments.

In the event of a processing delay, we will do our best to keep you notified. However, some unexpected circumstances may be beyond our control (i.e. compliance concerns such as prohibited or hazardous items, customs delays, inclement weather, value discrepancies, operational challenges, etc.). Our team will always prioritize processing your shipments as quickly as possible to get them into the hands of our delivery partners. 

Typically, you can expect to see an acceptance or “induction” scan on your tracking within one to three business days after processing at our hub. Rest assured that your shipment is still in transit during this time.

For services that are not fully tracked, tracking updates will only be shown up until Chit Chats hands the package to the partner carrier.
