    Plus USPS.com tracking gives you the option to receive email or text alerts for your package tracking updates.

    True. I thought it was a glitch happening to just me. I only get alerted the day before delivery and the day of delivery. Man I miss the old system. Haven't they heard of the phrase "If it ain't broken don't try to fix it"?

    Old system was flawless. I have yet to get anything but updated delivery days.

    Can you paste what the results are when you use the "multiple shipment" box on the EMS site? It reports more specific details.

    It was the only site that told me when one of my packages was rejected by customs and sent back to the warehouse.

    Looks like it's just waiting for space on a plane to be any over.
    Here's what the next steps looked like from my last shipment.

    2017-09-24 00: 00: 00.0 16:34:44 Guangzhou City to leave the processing center, sent to the USLAXA
    2017-09-25 00: 00: 00.0 08:59:00 US Los Angeles mail has been arranged to transport
    2017-09-26 00: 00: 00.0 06:00:00 Los Angeles arrived at the processing center, from Guangzhou, China

    I don't know what is the normal time frame to your nearest intl hub. For lax it usually ships within 1-3 days once it gets to the Guangzhou airport but once there was an 8 day delay for me.

    You can contact zhongshan support via chat to have them check on it.

    thanks for every1's help on here for my first order on taobao. i downloaded the aliwang or whatever app and talked directly too them and received my items after 6 or 7 days after that. It was a battery issue that they wanted permission to take it out that was holding up the delivery. As it worked out i bought items that would have cost me a total of roughly 120 for 50 bucks delivered. so i have made another order lol. this time a lot bigger.

    Ebay:
    Which buttons/links would I need to click in order to see if a seller has left me feedback on a purchase I made? I'm assuming it's like eBay where buyers/sellers can rate each other.

    Are you asking about the aliwang app for communicating with sellers? Coz if you are u have to download it then install and u will see any messages sent to you. I think it comes up when you click the blue face thingy next to the sellers name.

    I meant an evalution feature for rating buyers/sellers. I've got Aliwangwang and so far haven't seen one.

    Look on the left side menu of your home page, there is an evaluation category.

    It's not out yet or the big sellers like toyzone or thor-toys would have it. If you're interested, just ask one of them when it will be released.

    Finally got my order. I ordered from Mong Kok Anime and everything went well. I am not a fan of EMS tho...the re-packed the three boxes by just putting them in a bag...with no protection. one box got semi crushed, but the fig was unscathed thankfully. Another thing that ticks me off, is that all the boxes were opened (not an issue) but one of them had the instructions not put back in. Not a huge deal or anything...it just kind of pisses me off a bit.

    at any rate, I can confirm that Mong Kok Anime is trustworthy.

    Did you preorder yours? If so, which seller?

    So your instruction is missing? Wow. What item was it for?

    yeah, both the instruction and the card...I mean I don't really care...it's just the principle of it. as far as what it was, it was MP prowl.
