    I'm in Poland (EU) and all the packages come through just as usual (with maybe really slightly more delays), including those sourced from China via Amazon, eBay or Aliexpress. One exception I've noticed so far is USPS - packages got to the departure from the States step, and now 2 weeks with no further news. Hope they do turn out on the other side soon! ;) Waiting for a Case Trapperlock and a Tidioute.

    It’s slowing down for sure. I sent something today priority that’s usually two/three days and they are saying Friday delivery time. Oh well, nothing we can do about it.

    I posted 2 knives in early March. One just arrived a few days ago (over a month spent in transit) and the other has yet to be delivered. I don't know if it's my local postal service, USPS, a lack of freight flights or something else entirely, but there are certainly delays shipping items internationally to the US. I haven't had issues receiving packages from the States though.

    Edit: Second package just arrived (~40 days later)

    Normally packages I send at my local PO scan there at some point. That never happened with the last package.

    Well, package made it just fine. It was a little scary though. It never scanned in at a location until it reached the delivery PO. Took 7 days. No scans until the seventh.

    I really don't know what is happening.Sent a package from Vancouver to Chicago on April 7,it cleared Customs on April 9,and has yet to arrive.

    All there is the generic mesaage about it being in Transit.

    I just received one like this. It showed that USPS was awaiting drop off of the shipment. Still does actually. Meanwhile the thing has been delivered. No obvious flaw with the barcode.

    An update,the package sent over 5 weeks ago to the Chicago area, now shows as being in the process of delivery.After showing as in transit for the past month to the day.

    Now it seem it was out for delivery twice to the wrong town.

    I've been waiting for a package from Australia since 4/17. Just arrived to NYC and awaiting to clear Customs for a couple of days. Then, will be turned over to USPS.

    Last time I ordered the same item, same place, it was here in under 1 week.

    Some packages from Canada and UK are faster than that, but much slower than in the past by a week or 2, so far.

    I had a package from Australia, finally showed up after 6-7 weeks.
    Had one from NewMexico get stolen by a usps employee before it left the state.
    Wife had a pair of boots make a couple loops around the country before finally arriving 3 weeks late.
    Other than those 3 instances, not bad

    My experience right now is that my Usps priority mail packages are taking between 5-7 days and first class is taking longer.

    I’ve been waiting on a small first class Package for 3 weeks now and I’m not sure if I’ll get it.

    Had a first class box take 3 business days from VA to PA, though it was estimated to take 6. Not bad.

    I’ve had no issues with FedEx however. They’ve been solid.

    Moving forward I may just start shipping any higher value items solely using FedEx.
