    I bought magic Square UM from Netclow and they used regular China post. HZJ did say the rules were for power sellers and Netclow doesn’t appear to be a power seller. Sounds like a weird rule though to impose the worst shipping on the best sellers. :/

    Actually, it makes perfect sense. eBay offers shipping discounts so if they impose the most cut rate service on those who sell the most product, that’s LESS money eBay has to subsidize for their shipping discounts.

    So like everything else in life it’s all about money.

    It's crappy in general that eBay had to get involved at all with the shipping

    Is there an average number of days between updates with China Post? My last update was on 12/04 and it was processed by Zhengzhou EMS.

    China post takes forever to update.

    Try contacting your seller to see if they can track from their end for you, as from my experience the numbers don't always work on the buyer's side. I'm still waiting for a tracking number from netclow to update and that number is almost three weeks old...

    Thanks! I found a tracking page for China Post and found that it had a little bit more detail. Apparently it cleared Export Customs on 12/04, so at least that sheds a bit more light.

    Maybe we should chalk this up to "things-nobody-except-metaphorge-gives-a-spark" about, but, as I expected, MFT's take on Stylor from their Chivalrouser (Chromedome) DOES indeed scale pretty much perfectly with Dianauts...
