Update.

Still no shipments out of Warsaw by air. The auction house said they could ship to places in Europe if that helps.

I did order something from a German dealer through MA-shops today, so will see if air shipments are still coming from Germany.

@norantyki, I was notified today that one of my Warsaw packages has been sent. So maybe air shipments are back up and running?

@tdziemia - according to the link, things are flying (priority is back, as is tracked to the border). Curiously, tracking to destination (Global Express) is unavailable - maybe they dont want to exacerbate backlogs. Unfortunately, too late for me as a seller - I decided to take advantage of the large free listing offer on the Bay (without knowing about the restrictions, delays), and I am drowning in cases from impatient or dishonest buyers - lot of people are gonna get a lot of free coins it seems as they (ebay) have been of sub-zero help as usual. Oh well, live and learn I guess.

I have a sort of horse race I am now watching, for packages shipped from various countries:

Germany - posted 28 April, not yet left the country
Poland - posted 7 May, left the country 8 May
France - posted 11 May, left the country 15 May
Austria - Posted 12 May. left the country 14 May

Belgium package has not yet been posted as far as I can tell.

I should probably stop buying from places outside North America for a while .

I am also a little curious if @cderksen and @oriole have received the packages they mentioned earlier int he thread.

Two weeks since the last update:


Quote:
Germany - posted 28 April, not yet left the country. Update: arrived May 23
Poland - posted 7 May, left the country 8 May. Update: Nothing yet, and cannot track
France - posted 11 May, left the country 15 May. Update: Arrived NYC May 27 and apparently stuck there
Austria - Posted 12 May. left the country 14 May. Arrived Chicago May 30.


So, USPS isn't doing terribly well getting things to destinations. I rarely complain about them, but ...


On the other hand, a package from Italy I didnt expect to have until July-AUgust arrived today (DHL, not regular post).

Ya, most of my shipments to Canada have been hitting in the past couple of weeks, but the US is really sporadic. Ive actually discontinued shipping to USA until things normalize.

@tdziemia, my package did arrive sometime in mid-April. Since then I have ordered a few things from the US and they took longer than usual to arrive but not horribly so. A few things from Canada took a bit longer.

They don't have a Wells Fargo stage with an armed guard riding shotgun across the Pond!

Don't worry - you will get your shipment eventually.

@norantyki, I just received the package from Warsaw yesterday, so that was 4 weeks. Not really terrible, about twice as long as normal. I have at least one more coming from Warsaw, and one from Rzeszow (which I guess must pass through Warsaw anyhow).

Edit: The package from Rzeszow arrived today, just 9 days after posting!

Both Belgium and Germany shipped for me this past week--hopefully I won't have to wait four weeks for them to arrive.

I am seeing long hold-ups after things reach the U.S. My package that showed up in NYC May 27 still hasn't moved from there 10 days later. Let's hope you (and I, cause I also have a package mailed Wednesday from Elsen) get luckier this time.
