Just doing a query. We cut off international shipping during Covid because of
the transportation issues and how long it was taking for parcels to process through
customs and travel time. We wanted to avoid impatient buyer and avoid any possible
PayPal claims due to these issues. So I guess my question goes to those still
shipping from the US overseas and to those receiving parcels overseas, how long,
currently are folks seeing these transit times. We would like to open it back
up, especially for the holiday buying season, but don’t want to still be running
into massive delays.

Thanks
Scott

I've seen packages 2 - 4 weeks from USA to NZ.

Parcels are arriving quicker from USA than those shipped from from Australia!

As an overseas buyer, I vote to open up shipping, just be sure to send parcels
tracked.

Everything is tracked from the US, you don’t have an option, what hangs it up
is when it’s handed off to another countries customs and mail service. I will
see if there are a few more responses from other areas and make a plan.

Thanks
