What does "foreign acceptance" mean when getting a package shipped USPS? Answered

I am having a package shipped from China through USPS. When I try to track it, it says "foreign acceptance". It shipped on the 12th, just trying to figure out when I'll get it. Thanks!

It means the shipping company accepted it (UPS) for shipping. It can have all sorts of 'intransit' messages before it gets to you.

It just means that someone in China accepted your package and updated the tracking information. Likely, the local shipping company.
