    hi,

    Ok so i brought a ps3 from ebay right, the auction said shipping to uk,
    USPS global priority mail $65 (4-6 days).

    I contacted the seller and she informed me she has sent it out however it was sent out by usps global economy which is surface post :( , she has taken ot insurance but i have no trakcing or anything, what do you guys recommend, shes a nice lady and all so i dnt want to complain to ebay about her, she explained it was the first time she shipped an item to the UK and that she didnt realise how long it would take via global economy.

    Question is what should i do and have any of you experianced quick delivery times via economy surface post.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Samar

    Why did she send it economy if you paid for priority? Give her a slap about that.

    Timescale really depends, I've had stuff take a week, other stuff take just over a month.

    You probably shouldn't expect it before 2007.

    Yes it was, however it was sent from the east coast, so it didn't have to travel acorss the states, probably shaving a week off the delivery time.

    No one is that stupid , she's creaming off the priority costs you've paid her. Tell her to refund you the difference or cancel the PS3 and get one from someone else ( its not as if they are thin on the ground).
