You’re not alone. chuckles
My issue is, there’s seemingly no consistency in the tracking.
Parcelsapp.com shows the same “2-5 days estimated time remaining” nonsense every time you query it.
And with it being shown being bounced back and forth (China Post to USPS to China Post) it’s hard to know what to believe.
Are they accurate? And they are just playing ping pong with the package? (“We’re not taking packages from you right now…” and getting a “Oh yes you are” reply)
Is it just polling each tracking site, and replying with the information received, and displaying them in chronological order?
Impossible to say without knowing how it’s coded. So we’re left guessing.
I do know and have screenshots of one of them saying that the package had actually departed Zhengzhou on an air flight. (which historically has meant that upon landing, it was then on US soil.) But, given the displayed results change depending on the time/day polled… All bets are off.
I also know that we’re quickly nearing the 60 day mark. If memory serves, there’s only a 90 day window to get things handled with PayPal.
So as much as I’ve been trying to be understanding and patient (given all the extenuating circumstances), the prospect of “what should I do about this” becomes more pressing as yet another week draws to a close.
I don’t fault Fasttech, they got it shipped (in reasonable time). I don’t feel guilty for trying to get it shipped as cheaply as possible. But I am disappointed with a few other aspects.
Is paypal allowing extra leeway for claims (for those of us who are trying to be considerate of the situation)?
Is the USPS actually putting a ‘silent freeze’ on incoming packages? (a silent tool in the trade war under the guise of "safety concerns’)
Or is it actually fucking lost, and nobody wants to own up to it?
I mean, after all, if @FastTech.com says the expected time in shipping is up to 30 days, and the shipment has already exceeded that length of time…
Then time’s growing short to take action.
Feeling like a “No win” situation for any of us in this situation.
