I get asked a ton about anticipated arrival of packages, why a particular shipment is taking longer than it should. In the spirit of updating the masses, here are a few things to know about our shipping.
-USPS is by and large the most economical option for US and international shipments.
-In theory US Priority mail is the fastest however there are times where priority moves about as quickly as First Class.
-When a package looks like it is not moving, it likely wasn't scanned at that destination- give it a few more days (7 days max).
-First Class International DOES NOT track (in most cases) beyond the last US scan. This means that we wait, sometimes impatiently like you, for the package to arrive. This is the tradeoff when choosing inexpensive international shipping.
-Inquiry on the status of an International First class shipment from the US is virtually impossible. Best solution is to use your tracking number (which acts as a reference number) to inquire at your local station.
-Choose Priority International if you want to know more exactly when to expect your shipment.
We've implemented customer-based shipment choices so you can pick your poison- cheap and perhaps less consistent or more expensive and on the mark.
