Postage wait times from US to UK
I have traded with another member through here and I await a delivery from the US to myself in the UK. I would estimate that anytime I have traded through post to the US I have waited about 4 to 6 weeks for the stuff from the US to make its way to me. The other trader received the items I sent after about 8 weeks. I am now at 10 weeks and don't know if it's time I declared the trade lost in post. Has anyone experienced longer postage wait times? Has the parcel been seized by customs and may eventually make its way to me after they inspect it? I have no reason to believe the other trader has tricked me as he has messaged looking for updates and is willing to make amends for what I am missing to protect his feedback. I have never had anything ever disappear in the post but I suppose international stuff is more likely to as it probably passes through many sets of hands. The items I traded were worth about £50.
