Shipping is taking FOREVER from the States

Is anyone else up here waiting on things from diaperswapper mammas that's taking forever?

My stuff is taking an unreasonable amount of time and I'm seriously thinking I'm not going to be buying from other forums. I'm feeling a bit uneasy about these transactions taking more than a month to get here...

Am I being paranoid?

I paid for Priority mail shipping to Canada last year and it took 19 days! It was close to Christmas, but I was shocked! I'm not really sure why it takes so long!

19! It just doesn't seem fair! Maybe Customs is holding things up - I can't see what else it could be. It is so darn frustrating though.

Strange, most my things from the states show up sometime between 2-3 weeks. I don't think I've ever gone a month and I've always done FC shipping.

Usually I get my stuff within 2-3 weeks. I'd be getting worried after a month!

I had something go 6 wks once... it was held 23 days in customs. When you pay for priority you get a # that you can track it with. Priority or first class its all slow!

Most things take 3 wks...

Usually 3 weeks but it is the summer and things are busy. Also, there have been a few long weekends between us and the US that will be slowing things down too.

Re: Shipping is taking FOREVER from the States

I have had 2 things in the last little while that took over a month...one from here, one from ebay, after it hit a month, i got paypal to refund my money...it's been over a week and I still haven't received either of those items! Both sellers claim that they were sent too...

Re: Shipping is taking FOREVER from the States

I have this problem too. I had one package take just over 3 weeks. And I KNOW it was sent when the seller said, because it had tracking. Customs is ridiculous, as is Canada Post, IMO.

The last item I bought was here in 1 week from Florida! No kidding. Yet, the other items seem to range from 2 weeks to 3 weeks because they're held up in customs. It's frustrating!
