    Hopebuy offers a lot of shipping methods and I was wondering which is the best one.

    Express Method Start up First 0.5 kg Follow per 0.5kg
    ADS $20.90USD $6.00USD
    DHL $21.70USD $6.50USD
    FedEx $41.80USD $6.00USD
    UPS $30.50USD $6.00USD
    TNT $22.60USD $6.00USD

    DHL seems to often be caught in customs and FedEx is expensive.
    Wich of the others is the best one to avoid customs?

    Thanks.

    UPS

    DHL delivers it to your local post office and may take an additional week or 2 to have it be delivered to your house [ that's what my experience with DHL was like ].

    My order was shipped yesterday via DHL and I got a tracking number. However the tracking number still cannot be found in the tracking system today. Is that normal?

    Edit: Nevermind, it works now. But the status is "Security delay". What does that mean?
