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 :(

i sent a globe to america once by surface and it took a month to get there, should have paid a bit extra for express.

Never trusted it to chance mate, even when importing games I pay for the extra p&p so I can track it (peace of mind and all that)....

I hpoe it arrives safely mate, but I wouldn't accept fast delivery times when its Christmas and New Year.

It sounds like it maybe a scam, no tracking number and she may keep fobbing you off by saying it will get there eventually. Technically she's broke the terms of the auction, if it's not there in the agreed time make a claim with your credit card company.

My first PS3 took 4 days from leaving the US to arriving in the UK and my second one took 10 days.

Mine was sent by 4-7 day post and it took 20 days to get here. It spent a few days in customs but it still took a long time. Its the worst time of the year to send something.

Hi There,

This should be trackable. Any item sent via USPS with insurance comes with a "USPS Insured Mail Receipt". On there is a number ending with "US". That should be trackable. Also the customs declaration form also has a number ending with "US". That should also be trackable.

Now the customs number should also be trackable on the parcel force website.

My seller said the same thing that it was not insured, he sent via the 4-10 day service. I asked him to scan and email me the docs, and that's how I knew it was trackable.

I think the surface post takes between 28-42 Days.

Good Luck.

I doubt it mate mine was sent same day and its somewhere over the atlantic according to the info, so add in the 5 or so days it takes to clear customs be lucky to see it this year.

who knows, it really is down to the look of the draw. How the package is labelled, how the contents is detailed. You never know you could escape without any custom charges....:smashin:
