    Hi!
    I ordered Ak2i from Shoptemp around four weeks ago, still nothing.
    How long does it usually take? o.o

    If you ordered free shipping, it does say it can take two to five weeks.
    This may be normal.

    Well, there was that bothersome volcanic ashcloud recently...were the Finnish airports affected?
    Because that ashcloud delayed my R4's delivery as well.

    Well there you go then. [​IMG]
    I've heard other people around here say that free shipping took them only a week, but us in Europe had to deal with that ash cloud, lol.
    It delayed ALL the stuff I ordred!

    the shipping is random, but thats not shoptemp's fault.
    it's not because of shoptemp if you receive your parcel in 1 week or 1 month...
    like i keep saying there are many reasons:
    - once your parcel is shipped out, shoptemp has no control over it, its the HK post who does the job, of course
    - your parcel can be delayed because of the ash cloud if you are in europe
    - your parcel can be delayed by the customs if they decide to verify it randomly
    - your parcel can be delayed if you provided an incomplete address
    - your parcel can be delayed if there are problems locally (it arrived to your area, but there are strikes at your post office, or they are slow, or they are lazy...)
    the same may happen no matter where you buy, but you receive your parcel eventually. You just need to be really patient sometimes, if you aren't lucky.

    I could use an R4 for some wood testing... That sounds wrong... Time to test the free shipping.

    hey i ordered and paid via moneybookers for my ak2i with registered postage, but i have yet to receive a payment confirmation or shipping email from shoptemp!
    it's been 3-4days since i paid for it. i've raised a support ticket but it has not been answered.
    does anyone knows whether this is common?
    as this is my first time ordering online stuff from another country(i live in singapore) i'm really quite worried!
    any help on this will be greatly appreciated!
