you maybe willing to take the risk but the ebay sellers are not although why they should be worried about losing a 1 dollar promo i've no idea.
Do bear in mind that with an eBay sale if it goes missing the seller has to refund the $1 for the card AND the postage paid by the buyer. So the loss to the seller can quickly mount up.



This would be a possible $2.50 loss for sale that is probably .82 profit (10% to ebay, 3% to paypal, 5 or 10 cents for a top loader.

So potential loss is 300% of potential profit.

Cards sent from the UK on July 2.

Still nothing for me as of July 29.

When he sent me a package last month, it came in less than a week...

My inclination is to still say it will turn up. It could be that the first mailing was the exception and you got it too soon. It doesn't sound like you will have much recourse either way, so all you can do is wait.

It might be that it was addressed badly and it will find it's way back to the sender. The mail is slow and bad. Stuff is lost with tracking, without it you don't even have that much to follow all the stops. But not that much truly disappears when you consider the volume. Let us know, I still think you will hear from it if was addressed properly with enough postage. Smile

I has someone send me 2 cards from Canada on April 13, and still nothing has arrived, almost 3 weeks later.

Anyone else notice slow mail between Canada and the USA ?

With the world situation as it is at the moment normal service will not take place, expect all sorts of delays.

Yep. I recently bought a vintage golf card from someone in Canada. It was sent Priority Mail Express and still took exactly 2 weeks to arrive. It was originally scheduled to be delivered more than a week before it actually was.

I check the postmark on all received packages. Cards from outside the USA are occasionally much delayed, with no pattern I see. When a late comer arrives, I try to tell the sender that I know they sent it promptly (from the postmark) but they ought to be aware; if it happens for a bunch of recipients, some inquiries might be appropriate at their end.

If it's sent through a "shipping partner" instead of directly from the national system like Canada Post or Royal Mail, I see tracking notices that hint that it might take a good while for multiple items to be combined into one big package for international rates, shipped fast, then spend days at the partner facility in the US to dribble items into the USPS system.

A recent overseas package arrived in exactly 3 weeks but tracking data hints that it only took 2-3 days actually traveling after it was dropped off by the seller. Usually items move fast once they leave the city of entry, so I have thought delays are primarily at borders.

I have been collecting the recent Avengers by Unstoppable, and I purchased a dozen individual cards from UK dealers. 10 of the 12 have arrived

2 of the ones which have not come both have tracking.

As of June 8, one says it was last seen at Langley (is that the UK airport ?) May 19. The other says arrived in NY May 22.

Meanwhile, the other 10 arrived within less than a week

Very frustrating ! What is the point of tracking ?
