Man, you guys are pretty damn impatient. Remember that things used to take up to a month back in the day, waiting a week is nothing.

in my experience, USPS has the WORST tracking system. Many times my packages don't show up in it, ever.
It will appear instantaneously as being processed if the office isn't completely ghetto without PCs, updated location info and delivered status less than 4 days after being dropped off is another story.






























whoosh

I guess I can wait till tomorrow night. I'd feel more comfortable if he'd given me a tracking number though.

Yeah, it's not X-mas season or anything:rolleyes::rolleyes:. Shipping delays are only going to get worse the next few weeks.
Whats that got to do with anything? some people have been waiting 36 days now and counting without a tracking number, even though it has been requested numerous times including in the initial transaction.

How does it take that long to come from the US to Australia?

One word: customs. I've heard of things held for weeks, even months. Shipping internationally is a PITA and that's what you risk unfortunately.

I can confirm this. At my job, I regularly get stuff from all over SE Asia. I've had shipments take 2 months, roughly 75% of that being time in customs.

@DiscountedCycl - Give people tracking numbers and save yourself this trouble.

Yep. RM members had to coddle me when I had a set of cranks from RaceFace on lock down at customs coming from Canada to the US. Mine were held for roughly a month b/c I had them sent to my work address and our company has their own customs broker to inspect them.

Since they didn't go through normal company channels, it took the broker 2 weeks to get to it.

Started dispute resolution on paypal last night. I doubt I'll see my money or the product, but at least it'll keep him from ripping anyone else off for a little while. I'm in the US fwiw.

And you're a cockmunch to boot.
If you think I'm being unreasonable, then I'm sure you won't mind insuring my product for me. I'll send 10$ to an escrow, you send 50$ (for the seatpost). When it arrives, the escrow sends the 60$ to you. If it doesn't arrive, and I get no refund, he sends it to me. Sound fair?

I would almost be willing to paypal you the $50 just to save me from having to read your bitching.:thumb:

EDIT- oh yea.....ignore list. Forgot about that gem. I just saved $50!

so let's get this straight... you ordered product, paid with paypal. seller ships product. there are issues in transit, and its the sellers fault? :confused:
Do we know he shipped? Paypal will side with limited slip, unless tracking shows that it made it to his house. a receipt is useless in paypal court.

Appears so......guy even offered to send out another one on the house for the shipping mishap.......definitely the sign of a scammer.

I order product on 21st. I pm him asking where it is on the 1st. He replies on the 2nd, saying that he hasn't shipped it yet due to thanksgiving and a sick relative, but that he will the next day. On the 4th this thread is posted, I say I haven't received my seatpost yet, he replies saying that if it doesn't show up on monday (6th) he'll send another one. To me that sounds like he hadn't sent one yet, and he just wants to buy more time (seriously, what company would just "send another one" 3-4 days after having shipped the first?). Haven't heard anything since.

To recap, no evidence to suggest anything has been shipped. Plenty of reason to think otherwise.

As I said above - simply providing a tracking number clears all this up. Hell, add $2 to the price of the goods to cover the cost.

Yeah, I'm with you. I would totally have expected to receive a cheap seatpost with free shipping on Saturday after receiving a message that as of Thursday it hadn't shipped. I mean, who are these people, offering free shipping and not shipping overnight Saturday delivery in liquid nitrogen?

Yeah, I probably should have specified in the first post that I had been in contact with him and that he said he had shipped it the previous day. It was still relevant to the thread though, that it had been two weeks and no seatpost.

Did he provide tracking numbers to any previous customers?
 
Ok I called to see what is going on. Apparently there's a family issue he's dealing with and that all orders will be received by this week by you guys.... there is an inch of ice on the ground and he's using a rental car while the rear main seal of his truck is fixed....

DO not shoot the messenger... just figured id call and get a headsup for you guys.... this is what I was told this is what im posting... so hopefully all gets resolved.
