Default economy mail from overseas

What we had was simply a failure to communicate :-)

I am familiar with trading overseas and if he had said he sent it ground or
economy I wouldn't have gotten worried until after 8 weeks.
We talked about that before I bid and he said it was the 7-10 day mail
service. It didn't really matter to me, I was in no hurry
but when it didn't show up weeks after the promised delivery date, I began
to worry and eventually gave up.
We talked several times and he was surprised I hadn't already gotten it
and he filed a complaint with the post after 30 days.

The postage on the package is 8.48 euros and I paid $13 US. That is close
enough because the container cost too.
It is clearly marked economy.

Alls well that ends well and I left positive feedback.

airmail can take anywhere between 3 -22 days (usually just 4 from UK)

surface mail can take between 6 - 12 weeks (usually just 6 from UK)

I gave up on ever getting that item a LONG time ago but believed the
seller really did send it so I left no feedback
good or bad. That depresses me as near $40 purchases are not something
I can easily lose and feel good about
or forget.

Well it arrived today!!! 47 days after it was shipped!!!
I feel like celebrating. :-)

Default economy mail from overseas

As I have stated in a different thread, I am still waiting for a
package from the UK that was sent on April 13. I have received packages
from Australia in less than a week. Recently purchased a coin from a
guy in Norway, arrived in less than a week. Also waiting for a coin
from Romania that is approaching a month. Why cant the postal services
be more efficient? Well, guess thats why there is FedEx.

The package wasn't delivered for two months! The recipient and I had
long since decided the package had been lost and I had sent a
replacement ... before the original arrived.

Australia and New Zealand are about the worst. I ship art glass to NZ
sometimes, usually using economy (understandable, since glass is
heavy). The packages take 1-2 months to reach the buyer. It would be
nice to ship Airmail, but the postage to Australia and NZ are about the
worst in the world. Buyers usually opt for economy. One buyer wrote me
that sometimes it takes 3+ months to reach him in NZ.

I don't buy from Australia and NZ because it is too expensive. Postage
certainly does hurt their internet trade.

My wife and I just celebrated out 13th wedding anniversary here in
Ontario on the 15th. My mom sent us a card from Albuquerque, NM via
Global Priority Mail on the 10th. We STILL have yet to receive it!

Congratulations on 13 years!!! My wife and I will celebrate our 32nd this
fall.
God! I can't believe I can say that without tears!

Dale
not sure celebrate was the correct word to use.

Wow

That has to be a record. Wonder where it went for all that time.

I was mystified when the uncle I had sent it to asked me how I had enjoyed
Belgium when it had been three years since my visit, I wanted to see the
postcard to see if it had any evidence of being jammed in machinery but he
had binned it. Billy

It probably got stuck in a crack and then some time later during a clean up,
it got found.
Either that or it circulated the globe for three years going endlessly from
post to post :-)
Bet it acquired mystical powers until discarded. It will resurface someday.
