Shipping Questions

I ordered a multicam BDU from Airsoft Depot about a month ago now and because he didn't have my size in so he had to order it from his supplier in China.

The tracking number he supplied says that the package shipped on the 2nd by means of "International Inbound Courier", and is in transport to canada.

Now, I understand that shipping from China can take a while, but it has been 12 business days now, and the last item I had ordered from a Chinese retailer had arrived in 9 business days.

I'm wondering if there is any way of gathering more information on my parcel (eg. Flight #, update on its location) and when I should start worrying that my package won't arrive.

Should my package not arrive, am I basically screwed or is there some sort of action that I can take to either getting my items or cash back?

Ordering things from China can take forever in some cases even as long as a couple of months. Information updates are only available if the agent handling your parcel at the time remembers to scan the parcel so it can be updated in the system. If the parcel has gone without update for sometime call the company that is handling its shipping and ask for them to put a trace on it.

If you dont get your parcel you can ask the seller for a refund and hopefully they comply, if you paid through paypal you can always file a claim for an unreceived item.

Just so you know. Over seas shipments can take over a month. If your supplier cheaped out you could be waiting for a package coming in by sea.

Just have contact the people you ordered from and request they do a follow up on the package. They generally can get an estimated delivery date for you so you know when to expect your package

AoiShikaku is right, the expected delivery date can take up to a month. The only piece of advice I can add to the already useful advice you've gotten from everyone thus far, ask for EMS next time, they're a lot faster.

I actually tracked the package on EMS and it has moved from Ezhou, to Wuhan and finally to Guangzhou. So basically it has moved from the main land to a port on the east coast, so I have a feeling that it is most likely being shipped by sea...
