I’m still waiting on a parcel from itc_shop that was sent on the 3rd of July, but at this point I don’t expect it to even arrive at all. The seller has already provided me with a full refund, so it’s not a big deal.
Still waiting. . .
This was my first order from them.
I ordered some items from DX about the same time. Most of the items arrived 3 weeks ago, but 3 of the items showing still backordered and not shipped.
(edited 8/23 to add) Just checked and my backordered items have now shipped.
I’ve noticed that all the packages coming out of Hong Kong are going through New York and take 10 days or more to clear customs, whereas the packages coming from mainland China go through Los Angeles averaging about 4 days to clear customs. Maybe NYC is busier, maybe lazier. But it does seem to be the trend: Hong Kong through NYC takes longer than mainland China through LA.
Some of what you said is right. My order from HK has been with ISC NY for 17 days and no idea how much longer they plan to keep it. My order from Singapore however wen through ISC NY in 2-3 days, which was ordered about one week later. Maybe different groups in ISC NY are dealing with shipments from different countries?
07/09/2012 Processing Your order is being processed.
I still haven’t gotten it. I’ve gotten a few other orders from them while I’ve waited.
I sent one email a couple weeks ago, and they said it is common for orders to take 4 weeks to arrive, and sometimes orders can take 5 weeks, as if I hadn’t received a dozen orders from them already, always getting them within 30 days.
I’m a little miffed and will send another email now.
Last scan indicated that the parcel shipped 08/19. Since then I do not have any update. However, the fact that it shipped so quickly is a good sign.
I’ve noticed that parcels from Hong Kong are typically faster lately.
Its dinodirect thing. IF your items are “popular”, it can take them 10 or more days to dispatch it (and than several days to be shipped).
IU think its low seasong now, postal offices are not very crowded and packages coming from sellers wich dispatch them quickly come quickly. Even unregistered packages, it can take only 7-8 days.
I have one lost or something package from dx though. Tracking number innactive for 20+ days.
I have been very lucky with China Post. Everything has come in 10-14 days (shipping time). I don't know if everyone uses registered, but it seems to come faster and takes less time in customs. I do not know why that is. I have been sticking to CNQG, and now that tabao buying agent. Of course they do not control shipping, but the registered stuff seems to get through fast. I remember two packages that weren't registered took 4-6 weeks.
