    Right? Noticing a lot of silence once packages arrived just a few extra BUSINESS days later than estimated time. Importing stuff right before Christmas is bound to take longer.

    I still have a package ordered in mid December stuck in nyc that hasn’t moved since the 27th of December.
    I have another order I placed a few days after the first one and that one is already here.
    I’m not complaining since I understood the risks associated with overseas ordering during the Holliday’s. It’s not showZ fault so no point in complaining about it to them.

    That said, I wouldn’t mind an option added for faster EMS shipping for an additional cost with ShowZ.

    Agreed, I think an option for paid faster shipping would be a good idea. Ive ordered a lot of stuff from overseas and I guess Ive never put much faith in any shipping trends as it always seems pretty random to me. Its like once it hits customs all bets are off at times too. I sometimes wonder if my package got like kicked under a desk and misplaced for a week.

    The problem is EMS might neither solve the problem
    If CNE has like 10% delay rate and ems only has 3%, but since people pay extra for EMS they still expect ems should arrive in time and became really angry when it doesn't come in

    Hi ShowZ, and thanks for providing a great service for my (far too) many orders so far.

    Do you expect to get the upcoming XTB Boost reissue in, at all? I can only find pre-orders for it (at least in terms of UK shipping) on TFS-Express, but their postage charges are ridiculously high for such a small figure, so I'd much rather go with you guys if possible.

    I’m in the exact same boat...package got to ISC NEW YORK and hasn’t moved....I wonder does the Gvt shut down have anything to do with this as I’ve never had a package from SHOW Z do this before

    Well at least take solace that there's a bunch of us who are in the same loooong wait we didn't anticipate. Stuff happens in post, I try not to let it ruin my day (too much).

    They are still operating, but that doesn't mean there won't be some potential for delays the longer it goes on :(

    Higher customs enforcement is the cause, not the shutdown.

    My recommendation because this happened to me, send a USPS inquiry via online. After I did that, my packages started to move. I don't know for sure if that had to do anything with it but you never know. The other scenario is they are moving and not updating too. I had that happen as well.

    No. USPS is self-funded. Customs still works as well.

    Hysterical reports aside, 80-90% of federal operations are still ongoing. You'd think after nearly twenty shutdowns in the past ten years, people would catch on to the political theater of these shutdowns.

    I wasn't saying it was the shutdown. Maybe it's all those bracelets, kelp, playing cards, and other ebay scammer stuff clogging up the works :D
