    Just wondering how long orders take to ship from Etsy? They live in the US and i'm in Canada.

    I ordered something from Etsy on Sept 23 and I got a email saying it was shipped on the 27th and they gave a stamps.com tracking # and I go to it and the last thing says Sept 29 "DEPART USPS SORT FACILITY"

    It's now the 16th and I still have not received anything :confused:

    Is that normal??

    Could it be held up in customs or whatever. USPS does NOT have to scan it except when it gets delivered IIRC.

    Not an etsy thing. It's a USPS/ Can Post thing. If I order anything from the US it never gets scanned beyond being dropped at the originating post office. Ever. And I order a good amount of stuff. Tracking numbers are useless for me.

    I ordered Arson 2 pairs of jammies from 2 sellers same day. One arrived 2 weeks after shipping, One has been 4 weeks, and is still MIA.

    When I ordered something from Canada it took 8 days to get here.

    But... it was right before Christmas. My package arrived on Christmas Eve. I don't know if my shipping time was average, delayed, or expedited because they were hauling ass to get everything delivered by Christmas?

    That seems like a really long time for a US-Canada trip. Maybe I'm wrong though. But it's not like it's coming from China or somewhere way out there.

    Well, I mailed something to Mafia, and it got stopped at customs and sent back to me. So I had to re-mail it (it's on it's way! I re-mailed it Monday!!). Oh, and why? Because I listed it had a tote bag in it, but not that there was a catalog in there, too. Obviously, catalogs are shady business and must be disclosed. Sheesh....

    Oh, and it depends on how it was mailed. I will ONLY mail to Canada via Priority Mail (USPS), which ranges from 4-10 days for delivery. If you mail it Parcel Post, it can take upwards of 4 weeks. O_O

    Years of problem free shopping and 2 items get sent back this month. My second pair of jammies was just returned to the maker this weekend. WTF is wrong with me that my stuff isn't arriving..
