Was this airmail or boat, as can take around a week airmail and 4-6 weeks boat.

I usually receive items within 2 but give upto 21 days using airmail,but Items should be sent within a couple of days of the auction/buy it now not 8 days,this is outragous:x.

i only ask as i emailed and asked but he said if i was on a tight time span then i should of paid extra on the postage but as i have never bought from anywhere except uk i did'nt realise.

Usually Find Most Usa Stuff Arrives Really By 14 Days Or Less, And I Live In N Ireland. Doesnt Sound Like Fedex Or Dhl But Prob Just As Well As They Normally Hit By Customs Tax On Delivery. Prob Usps If Slow So Have To Wait A 3/4 Wks But These Are All Signed For As International So Should Be Covered And Trackable. Give Few Days Then Ask For Tracking Number And Website Address To See When Collected Etc. Good Luck. Find Buying From China Much Quicker Than Us.

says he posted first class only 16 days ago so am i best to wait till 21 days is up before opening a dispute

If you not got the item by the time the 28 days of paying is up, then raise a dispute, as after this time, I think u cannot open 1.

How much was it worth? If more than £18 it could be delayed by customs until they open it and surcharge it with import tax (anything over 18 quid brought in), quite a backlog there usually ive heard

if he posted it 1st class it could take up to 6 months as it will have gone surface mail
that takes forever
I've bought stuff from america and if you go on the usps postal site you can price exactly how much something is to post and how long it will take to get there
I always do that before paying for postage as I find I can get the items in 3days if I pay say an extra £5 but have to tell them what postal service to use.

Also
quite often order from China and items always arrive within 2 weeks maximum, but they usually arrive in around 4 days and never any customs charges but always have had customs charges on everything from usa
