Please read recommended actions below on how to bypass these delays.
When the postal services make a change, they do not give us advance notice. This situation is fluid and constantly changing. If your item has not arrived in a timely manner we sincerely apologize for the delay. The postal service carrier system is out of our hands so we ask for patience as shipments make their way through the system.
Recommended Actions If Considering a Purchase
Domestic: For shipments inside the USA then USPS is OK to use although it might take an extra day or two.
International: If you are shipping to Canada then you should be OK with USPS. If you are considering a purchase anywhere else outside the United States we suggest using Fedex if you are concerned about time. We can still ship via USPS but due to the long delays we cannot be sure how long it will take to arrive.
USPS Shipping Delays
Due to Covid-19 international delivery times for certain countries are being severely impacted. We are seeing instances where it will take up to 4 weeks for the shipment to leave the United States. Due to no planes being available for shipments in assorted countries, the USPS is now using sea transport. This will add at minimum 2-6 weeks of additional transit time depending on the destination. This could be on top of the 4 weeks it takes to leave the United States. There could also be local delays in your area which would then add more time. You can check the status of your country's postal system here.
When the tracking stops registering on your USPS package then your shipment is likely out at sea. This can take up to a month or more. Sea port customs can take 1 to 2 weeks and then your regular postal service will add even more time.
Once your order is shipped, there is nothing we can do to speed up the process. If you placed an International order after February 2020 with USPS we ask that you please be patient. Shipments are arriving but are taking extra time.
Domestic orders within the United States are now showing delays in certain areas. International orders are still showing significant delays. We will update this page if anything changes.
USPS is currently experiencing major issues with it's tracking system. International tracking has not been updating once the packages leave the United States. This does not signal that your package is lost, only that the tracking system is having issues.
