    So I ordered some Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG cards from Ebay because I wanted uncensored arts for some of my favorite cards and it was from a seller I trust with a good track record and this is the log.

    The problem? It's been stuck at "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment" since the 19th.

    Can anyone on GBATemp with any experience with this tell me what's going on? You can also share your frustrating mail stories here.

    Did you pay extra for some faster shipping option? Sad fact seems to be if you don't pay more they tend to just sit on your package and hold it as long as possible (and sometimes even send it way off 100's of miles in the wrong direction) up until the latest day they can get it to you with in the time they "promised" without being late.

    Have a little patience. It's only been 4 days, one or two of which the post office was most likely closed.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    That happens all the time here in Argentina. In fact, I could assume that happens exactly as tbb043 said.

I was believing that was just a bad shipping stuff here, it more than an year and he stopped answering my messages here (I wasn't a lunatic like messaging every 3 minutes XD, just told him that it don't came and waited a answer but nothing lol he still active on the forum ...) idk if it gonna come some day ...

    I forgot
    Unless you paid for express shipping, it's likely going to take 7-10 days if it's coming from Tokyo. It's not like shipping in the US, you're completely disregarding things like customs and processing times between countries and things like that. It's not just gonna go straight from JP to the US, it has to be processed and organized properly which, depending on the countries it's passing through, can take some time. The tracking link doesn't show those updates, either, so you're just going to have to be patient.
