And now the real interesting question;
WTF are postnl and sweden post doing that they are widely used by Chinese vendors while not being able to do their jobs properly in their home countries?

Perhaps that same inability (coupled with homegrown corruption) ‘attracts’ outside influences rather than repels them. Shipping is power coupled with unfettered access as the Chinese well understood four years earlier when the Clintonistas sold America’s security at the Port of Long Beach.

Every other developed (or often underdeveloped) country in the world is (seemingly) much smarter and would never allow it (including China).

(Flagguys.com):..and man o man did they ever refuse to be subjugated. These guys were everywhere. They were important in Washington’s siege of Boston. They stayed behind and were the last to leave after covering the main army’s dangerous nick of time retreat from Long Island. They crossed the Delaware with Washington. They were “..at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and every major skirmish, and battle all the way to Yorktown..” where they fought “the most important part of the siege” according to General Steuben. These guys saw action in every one of the original 13 colonies.

Try doing some serious googling of the Universal Postal Union (united nations), based out of Bern Switzerland. You may find some of the answers. The US has been protesting the “fairness” of this for the last 10 years, when it comes to reimbursement of final delivery costs of packages from other countries. I’d bet the same is true for many European countries.

The US was somewhat successful with “e-packet”, I believe is why you never see it as an option anymore from Gearbest, but do see it with businesses like Simon’s Convoy, where he seems able to absorb the extra cost for dependable relatively inexpensive fast shipping, that the Chinese government won’t subsidize.

It’s usually worth starting a paypal dispute with gearbest. Their business model seems largely based around over-promising, under-delivering and hoping people won’t do anything about it. They then try to give people who do complain the runaround. A paypal dispute forces them to offer a more reasonable solution.

Well, CSGearbest offered me a full refund on the backpack, so that worked out nicely.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
