Unless you pay extra $$$ to have it expedited expect it to take around 3 weeks to arrive.
USPS tracking seems to work better from international vs state to state. [shrugs]
USPS can't update it until it is in their hands. IMO, they do not have it yet.

Tracking is usually pretty good within WA anyway. I'm surprised you don't have it. Usps tracking is not good though, just tells you it's delivered usually.

Package Services is Standard Post, or previously known as Parcel Post. Figure two weeks coast to coast and don't expect a lot of updates. I'll bet it'll show up on your doorstep before the website updates.

Just a shot if you wanta take it.....but call their customer service line & let them find it.
(2 birds 1 stone)
Something else you might check - see what their inventory status shows for the item. If it's <~3 units, they might've ran out & shipped it from another location.

PS - I've ordered from US Whs several times from NC - never taken more'n 8 days, usually in 4-5 & couple of times only 3; I remember being very surprised. All the lucky stars lined up or something.

Are you positive everything was ordered from the US warehouse?

I've ordered from there before and it seems the USPS is neglecting updating any tracking for low priority stuff even though they give a tracking number. Usually the day my stuff arrives I get notices about all the tracking being updated, it'll got from no change for a few days to 4 days of updates.

This is also usually the reason I don't pay HK for expedited shipping, they usually don't expedite anything.

yes everything was ordered in the us warehouse. I even clicked the button at the top of the catagories that shows only us warehouse stuff. I am going to email HK and see wha they say.

I always get my packages in three days from them. I use Priority mail always with them.

Priority Mail is definitely the way to go with USPS. I've had items shipped to me with no tracking info other than a label was created and then by magic it appears at the local Post out for delivery. A lot of inconsistancies with their tracking. I would expect an item shipped by parcel post to sit idle at a facility until enough packages have accumulated to put it in a load. I always prefer a seller to ship UPS or Fedex on larger items. USPS Priority mail being a great shipping method for smaller parcels. Just my experience.
