not necessarily… it probably hasn’t reached the next checkpoint yet. even if it is an international delivery, the usps doesn’t do much besides sit with their thumbs up their butts on weekends.

er… no offense to anyone who works for them….

Did you choose express or standard delivery? I ordered two dresses from the USA. One was standard shipping and it was supposed to be delivered within 6-10 business days but it took almost 4 weeks. The status did not change for almost three weeks between “international dispatch” and “arrival in country of destination”.

The second dress was express and had an estimated delivery time of 3 business days. It took 8 days until it arrived in my country and two more until i got it.

What i’m trying to say is that you can’t rely on the delivery time listed on the USPS website. Darling Husband and i order stuff from the US more frequently and it always takes several weeks. By the way, i’m in Germany and DHL is super fast and reliable, but crossing the atlantic ocean takes like forever.

140? Wow, mine was 65$. But it depends on the value and insurance. Well, I assume it will take about 5 to 8 days, like mine did. Do have have to pay import taxes in Greece? Then it takes some extra time for customs to check the package, probably 1 or 2 days

only fedex updates their tracking information at every stop. UPS does an okay job too but USPS sometimes will not update it frequently at all…

USPS has “delivery confirmation”, so the package often times does not get scanned on it’s route (unlike UPS). It really just depends, as I’ve had some packages that have made it from the US to somewhere overseas and never got scanned (even at the end), and others that get scanned along the way. Just depends on their mood if they want to update you or not it seems.
