RE: What have you got on order ?
Lucky. I wish my FT order would update. It's been in the US since Monday, but no word on where it's gone from there or if it's moved at all, and no info even on where it entered the country. I'm beginning to wonder if FT tracking even keeps track of where it is, or if it's just "Hey, it's been shipped and you'll see it when it arrives."

RE: What have you got on order ?
my FT order from fasttech is through Singapore Post.
I live in Oregon, and it's just not updating from "info Received".
Every day I grow more impatient and more eager to get Vaping.
This sucks.

Ordering from China is only for the strong, it can break most people.  Unless your ordering things you don't really need, or non shiny toy items.  I'm thinking of ordering some coils and drip tips from there.

my last FT order took just over 6 weeks to reach the US east cost . certain vape gear can not fly and must be shipped by surace , ie. batteries and mods .

RE: What have you got on order ?
Chuck I think that's my problem. I had to ship by boat since one of my items was a Panzer DNA200 with a built-in LiPo battery. The annoying part to me is that I just don't know anything. The tracking updated on July 4,all it says is "Arrival at Destination Post (Country: US)" and it doesn't say anything else, nothing about where it is or when it will get sent for delivery or anything at all. So it's somewhere in the USA, and has been for over a week, and no news. I did some searching online, apparently stuff can take anywhere from ten seconds to six months to clear customs. Which is the opposite of helpful.

Sometimes http://www.trackitonline.ru can see into post offices and get detail others can't.

The Royal Fail here do not provide tracking information to the public in terms more precise than your package is in the system. Trackitonline has shown me exactly where a package is and who has signed for it. Not always, but sometimes.

It's worth a try.

Is that the org run by the former CEO of Canada Post? Smile

Had never seen it referenced as Royal Fail....loved the "How it's Made" episode where they showed us the Royal mailboxes manufacturing process....

17track.net usually works for China or Singapore post, and the USPS should also be able to track CNxxxxx numbers as well. Not that you'll see any new info.

RE: What have you got on order ?
Ordered my product from FT on June 27th and it now shows:

11.07.2016 14:42
Arrival at international place of exchange
Canada

That was yesterday...now we see how long it will take to clear customs before being released for delivery by Canada Post.

That actually comes from my Computer Science 1 class in 1979. Where we had an exercise using the British Rail timetable only the lecturer rather mistyped it and it became British Fail.

Anyone who used the Edinburgh-Glasgow railway in the late 70's thought that was no typo but intentional. The rolling stock was ancient and worn out - up to a third of all trains on that line got cancelled on a normal day.

The use of it kind of stuck with me.
