    John, this work also for automatic and balis? I am from Europe and I am looking for a way to make some transactions with Canada/US. Here is my thread https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/selling-and-payment.1735965/

    Same happened to me. After 6+ weeks where nobody at usps knew where my package was after leaving Chicago, I filed a lost package claim, had to get the sender to verify for usps that they sent the package and it was lost, then they found the package. Going UPS in the future.

    For me, this was a one-off for me in about a decade of exclusively using USPS. Not yet there when I have to evaluate choices of carriers. :)

    The knife I ordered in the spring, shipped March 8th, took three and a half months to eventually arrive. That was a long wait and I put all purchases from the U.S. on hold.

    In September I did buy something from Ebay, as it was a rare opportunity etc. Figured it'll get here when it gets here, what have I got to lose, eh? This time, however, USPS only carried it (rather slowly) as far as the nearest DHL sorting centre and from there it took a couple of weeks to arrive in Finland. Shipping took four weeks in total, which in previous times would have been unpleasantly slow, but nowadays quite acceptable. Much, much better than three and a half months, at least.
