i placed an order of around $40, my package got shipped the next day via swisspost.
It took them 4 days to go from HK to US ( through Switzerland ) once my package reached the US shore ( new york ) my tracking just stopped there.

My latest plane from HK was listed as being 5 days in customs in NY the day they delivered it here.

Overall, delivery times have skyrocked for me. Before Dec 2011 I was getting my orders in about 9 days. The last 2 orders took about 24 days. From the info I can get, it looks like delays in the delivery system....HK is getting it out the door but then it sits in the hanger or customs.

That seems to be normal for Swiss Post Stewie. I recently ordered a pair of radios from Hong Kong and the exact same thing happened. They went out on Swiss Post, go to New York, and stalled for about a week. Then they magically went through customs and I got them in two days. Hang in there, it will ship in just a few more days.

dang, i hate the custom.
my last order with Hobbyking ( 2 years ago ) got to my hand really fast ( i think 10 business days ) but custom ripped up the box instead of carefully cut the tape, they also just shove everything back into the ripped up box, anyone can easily put their hand in there and pull everything out.
U.S custom have to do a better job.

Hey Stewie. Any updates on the package status?

Mine has been stuck at the same status for several days as well.

Usps tracking

Ok, so once it arrives in the US the swiss post tracking will stop, you then just must use your swiss post tracking number and use it on the USPS tracking and you will have the tracking while in the US, they just transfer the packages to the us postal service and you should be able to use there tracking(not great tracking i might add) but good enough. Simple.
