My oldest 3f is 78 days and counting on an order that would normally take between 12 and 24 days.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

I chucked an order in for a few more back up Dvarws .... Just to see what would happen.

It says "Intransit to NZ" for about a month now.

As has already been mentioned, no flights is the central issue.

They'll get here when they get here,not stressed.

Interesting to hear some other Chinese sites seem to be able to get stuff through in closer to normal times.

Wonder how that works ? Would've thought everyone was in the same predicament re: no flights no freight 😲
Rage on you crazy diamond.

my order from april 21 delivered yesterday
order from may 9 will be here very soon (arrived in my country)
those both shipped with postNL

orders from april 2 shipped with china post and france express epacket are somewhere but don't know where.

look like postNL is actually the best option

i also placed an order may 24 but it is too soon to track it since it was shipped may 27 (2 days ago)

It doesn't matter if China can sent our shit over here,
when the local post is going AWOL all we can do is wait and wait.

I personally stop any orders if this virus is still alive.
Anyway China doesn't need my money any more.
Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow.

Last order 1st of May. Shipping at a snails pace compared to other stores for some strange reason, even with the same carrier.

If you value your sanity, DO NOT order now. My package was delivered the wrong side of the US yesterday after a month wait with DHL. Still waiting for a response from Fasttech on the matter.

A DHL issue, surely?

I put in an order yesterday. "Waiting to be packaged" today.

I figure I'll get it eventually, and more curious to see how it goes :)

I never shop here expecting a fast delivery. The old saying "Good, fast, cheap...pick any two. You can't have all three" applies here. I have a sign that says this hanging at the entrance to my shop lol.

Shipping anything, anywhere, was already in a major change before Covid 19 hit. It just made things worse. I'm sure the dust will settle soon enough, but it probably will never be the same. It won't stop me from ordering from here though. FT is still one of the best for products I want AFAIC.

Just remember, they don't have any real control over shipping issues. There are other forces at work ( that are likely targeting them ) in the wake of this IMO.

That said, I still hope we all get our stuff soon :)

update: "ready to ship" :)

The main differences between ordering from FT and other sites; Other sites have stock so there is no delay in them obtaining the goods. When other sites tell you an item is despatched that means it is with the postal service - with FT it means it has passed to an intermediary to be taken to the postal service. FT have now become my official worst site for shipping times with my last order of January 23rd still not with me as we head into June.
More sense than money.....
