@TRock

When I click on the tracking link on my order page, it takes me to USPS, so yes, its going to be in pre-shipment until its accepted into the US through customs. Copy your tracking number and paste it into 17track.net to see what's going on with your packing in China. If you use Chrome, google will translate the page for you.

The snippets of tracking info that I posted in a previous post were from 17track, and were all in Chinese. If you try to track it from this end before it gets into the country, its only going to say pre-shipment or "origin post is preparing shipment". You won't get any info about what's going on in the origin country.

WOW! The package that hasn't had a tracking update in a month and a half ended up back in Zhengzhou "Return, Remarks: Security Inspection", and now "has been exported directly" for the second time. Hey, at least it hasn't been lost, right? It just took six weeks for it to get back to where it started to start its journey all over again, lol. Remember, both these orders were placed the same day, and shipped THE SAME DAY!!! One contained boro tanks and accessories, and the other contained squonk bottles, squonk pins, drip tips, and a mosfet. I think I only split the orders because some were in stock and some of the others had a couple day wait. But both those orders ended up shipping the same day anyway.

To summarize my FT 2020 orders to date:

Order: Type: Shipped: Delivered:
2/3/2020 Pre-Order Ready to Ship N/A
Took a long time for FT to get their stock in, so we'll see how shipping goes once its packaged...fingers crossed.
3/29/2020 Pre-Order 4/24/2020 5/15/2020
Stock came in fairly on time, and three weeks from China to California to Pennsylvania was pretty good.
3/29/2020 In Stock 3/30/2020 4/8/2020
Only having a USPS number, tracking starts in California on 4/42020. I used USPS Expedited for Battery Products.
3/31/2020 Pre-Order 4/26/2020 N/A
This one has now been "exported directly" from Zhengzhou twice as of 5/16/2020.
3/31/2020 Ships next day 4/1/2020 N/A
No updates from 4/6/2020 until 5/18/2020. Now it has been "exported directly" for the second time.
3/31/2020 In Stock 4/1/2020 4/20/2020
Somehow this one made it through New York unscathed and I got it in Pennsylvania within three weeks.

As you can see, my shipping time experience has been all over the place. Pre-Orders are slow, and that's to be expected as manufacturing isn't up to speed. Some things have come through both the East Coast and West Coast within a month. Two packages shipped on the same day; one was here in three weeks, the other is still in China, or back in China. I don't know if things are sitting on piles in China, or if they're being returned from the airports because they don't have enough room to store them and have too many to load for the amount of planes running, if they're just taking rides on trucks because they want to see the sights of their place of birth before moving here, or if they are getting here, and the US isn't accepting them for some reason and sending them back to China. Its all very chaotic and unpredictable at the moment.

@Anniepan can you please have my order B051514301 changed to ship via PostNL as this seems to be the only method arriving in a reasonable time, I already have 3 orders on route via NL and they are arriving inside 4 weeks all others are taking 2 months +.
Thank you.




Hello hwrds,

What does this mean?

Zhengzhou City, Zhengzhou International Processing Center return, note: security return

It is literally just 2 rolls of Clapton wire. I ordered something that was on preorder along with that wire and god only knows when that’ll make it across the pond. It is what it is I suppose.

@TrollV2

Return, Remarks: Security Inspection

I don't know exactly what this means either. I'd never seen it in three years of ordering things from China, and now I've seen it on three different parcels in the past week. I wish I knew at what point and why this is happening.

+1 details
there are a bunch of packages in a large sack. If one of those packages trips a security alarm (knife, something explosive looking, etc) then every package in that sack is sent back to go through security inspection again.
Looks like every package going though zenzoo is getting security returned atleast once. Mine was, Shipped out 2 days after ordering and now a month later it just left China through Shanghi.

I miss HK post bring them back!

@Anniepan My order C040139461 has not left Singapore post in 42 days.
So We can safely say it's lost.

Can I have another one sent out via another service and NOT Singapore post please.
