    I asked customer service but they aren't really giving me a straight answer. I live in New York and I ordered a DS case replacement and a triwing screwdriver with free shipping. What I wanna know is who is delivering my package? USPS? UPS? FedEx? Or is my usual mailman gonna put it in my mailbox?

    They keep saying Hong Kong Airmail but that's not telling me who's gonna bring it to my door so I can know who to watch out for.

    Hong Kong Airmail is the shipping service. It won't be UPS or DHL, etc unless you specifically ordered with one of those services. But if you ordered with Hong Kong Airmail, which I'm guessing you did, it would just be regular through the mail style, I think. Hong Kong Airmail is just the regular postal service, I do believe. They don't suddenly hand it over to UPS or FedEx since you didn't order with either of those companies.

    I don't think they could give you a better answer than just telling you that it's Hong Kong Airmail, because that's what it is.

    Thanks.

    I just wanted to make sure because I never ordered anything from outside the country before.

    From what it looks like on my shipping from using Hong Kong Airmail, they handed it over to USPS -- or at least I'm able to use my HK code to track it on USPS's website.

    Yeah, a national postal service isn't going to hand off a package to a courier like UPS. From Hong Kong Post (or any other national postal service), it will go to your country's regular mail service (USPS, Canada Post, Royal Mail, etc.).

    Better to stick with these, IMO. UPS and the like are bastards.

    I hope they just drop it into my mailbox.

    Watching out for the mail truck in a pain in the ass.

    Why did you bump it?
