Alva Information

Has anyone ordered over 20 diapers from Alva in the United States. I know if you only order a few pieces you are in for a wait, but the website and the person I contacted in the company have both stated if you order over 20 pieces they will express ship for free which means 1-2 weeks in the US. Does anyone have any experience with this being true? I need a bunch of diapers fast so I'm trying to figure out what or where to do it from. I have looked at Kawaii and Sunbaby both of which look like they are a lengthy ship from China. Giggle life looks like it's got a warehouse based in Canada which might make it fast? What do you guys think/know?

Re: Alva Information

Co-ops are when you order like 100 together right?

Re: Alva Information

I have heard on another board that it took right at 2 weeks when ordering the 20 plus. My concern would be are you going to get slapped with the taxes and surcharges at customs with that size of an order?

Re: Alva Information

WHAT?! Can that happen? Does that happen to co-op groups? I'm not trying to resell it...

Re: Alva Information

I've never heard of that at all. I've ordered from outside the country before without such problems. Have you experience this before?!

I ordered a bunch through a co-op and we did not end up with any customs issues.

This might be spammy but they didn't end up working for us and I'm now trying to sell them for exactly what I paid. PM me if you're interested.

I've ordered 2-5 items from the site directly and from their eBay seller and recorded them within 2 weeks usually either way, and with free shipping. If you put in the notes you need it by a certain date, they'll usually honor it (given its in a reasonable time frame)

It took about 2 weeks for me to get my 20+ item order, it was not stopped in customs.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.

Re: Alva Information

In Canada everyone I know who has done the express ship has gotten slapped with duty charges. They do get there fast though.
