Anyone used United States Express ePacket lately?
Had a pkg shipped on Dec 28 and it's been stuck on "Origin post is preparing shipment" since the first update.

Also wondering if anyone else's order was shipped via China Post as mine was?
I just need one more flashlight. Just one. Honestly. :D

I use USPS ePacket almost exclusively. Two of my orders that shipped around the time yours did are showing that. Actually, I see that on a regular basis. It means it's in the U.S but more than likely in customs. When I see "Origin post is preparing shipment" it sometimes takes a week before it gets out of customs and tracks with USPS stateside.

All I can tell you is what you see here...it sat dormant for days, then wham, showed up in Chicago yesterday. I say be patient:

Thanks. :)

I'm not really worried, but just curious if it's usually pretty quick, and also about the China Post tracking # since that wasn't mentioned. Were yours also sent via cP?

To the best of my knowledge mine weren't. I just make sure I have $20 or more in my cart with no batteries and choose USPS ePacket ;)

I sent mine United States e-Packet and always had USPS tracking...not sure what you mean about China Post being a part of this.

It was a $50 order, no batts or liquids etc.

If I'd known that CP would be used, I would have used another carrier. Oh well, next time I'll know.

My tracking # is a China Post # just like Vapor's.

I had 4 orders shipped on Dec 26th - 1 from HC shipped USPS epacket via CP and 3 from here, epacket via HKP.

The CP package finally landed at customs in Chicago (which was weird cuz mine usually go thru NYC) last week and is due to be delivered to me tomorrow

The HKP packages are still at 'origin post' and have been since 12/28

Not only is it unusual for HKP to take this long, it's unusual for it to be slower than CP - that's why I switched to begin with LOL
