Hi folks, please share your opinion about this subject.
From my personal experience, a lot of vendors refuse to give the tracking code (I'm talking about EU orders) because of "security issues". I think this is mostly wrong, I can understand if a new LB user asks you the tracking code straight after you've posted the item, but, if an older member of LB (with also a good reputation) asks you the tracking code, you SHOULD NOT refuse him for what HE PAID.
(The frustration starts when days have passed and you ask the vendor "can you please check where is my order?" and then you have to wait days to receive a reply, this could be avoided by giving the customer what he paid for)
Now, about the "security issue", let's be fair, if a cop would like to use the tracking code to track the dispatch point, he should just wait to receive the order and then he will be able to see the tracking code written on the parcel itself... So 2+2 = 5? Maybe for some vendors...
I'm not starting this topic with bad intentions, I just want to hear your opinion because I'm having enough of this.
