I recently purchased an item from australia (april 24). Hasn't shown up yet. When I emailed the seller he said he had not used any tracking. It can take awhile though - I'll wait until it goes on 40 day from payment and then file a claim - hopefully it shows up by then. I can't wait to see what the actual postage was for a 25g item when captain d-bag charged me $20 for postage ( figured there'd be some kind of tracking for that price). He better hope they show up.
just an update on mine- after 30 days and another email to the seller asking for even a customs #, he had nothing and I filed a claim. seller refunded my money and then emailed me stating he guessed I wanted my money and the item as well. I already told the guy if it shows up, I'm sending it back, I don't want it anymore. But he kept pushing so I asked why he charged me 20 dollars for shipping and then shipped w/ nothing -
I was going to use registered post but I was told the cost would be $29, then I decided to use normal
post and it went as a letter. You are disputing postage that is why you decided to keep the brake pad holders
and have all the money back.
So, I decided enough was enough and I went on Australia Post's website to look up what it cost to ship a 40g item to the US.
2.35 as a letter. there were other options ranging from 14 to 24 dollars that either had tracking or required a signature. what a douchebag.
I emailed him the link. haven't heard back.
thing is- I once ordered an extralite ultrastar direct from extralite. It took about 6 weeks to arrive, but I was able to check each day and see it was sitting in customs in NY so I just waited. This time I have no idea - if it shows up, I'm shipping them back- the only question is, do I use tracking?
