How soon USPS updates on packages?

I dropped my box at USPS location on Friday afternoon. On tracking number it says, The label was created and they are still waiting for my box.

Should I be concerned? Or because it was Friday afternoon, they still didn’t process it?

    They won't update the status until Monday, at the earliest.

    You can be concerned after 24 hours have passed

    USPS is inconsistent about this. Sometimes they just don't scan it, but most likely your package sat there yesterday without getting processed, especially if it's not Priority Mail. Most likely it will show up around midnight tonight. Also, if your tracking is through eBay then also be sure to check the USPS website for more up to date info.
