    Err hey guys [​IMG] I recently nagged my dad to purchase me an R4DS card, two actually, and he asked a friend to order it from Hong Kong. I have no idea actually of the site or place he ordered it from, but my question is....

    In most cases, what is the longest period of time it takes for an item to get shipped? Cause, I've ordered those two things last last Saturday (May 12), and I still haven' t received it. It's driving me practically nuts...

    btw, I live in the Philippines, which is like 2 hours away by airline plane.

    Anyone? Thanks [​IMG]

    You should check with the mail service to whether it has arrived. Since it's delivery in a relatively local area of Asia, it shouldn't take that long. I guess you should give it up to 10 working days before taking any action

    Did you ever get a notification that your package was even shipped yet? I know I live in the states, but my friend ordered from H.K. once and they did not ship his package for two weeks, but that was because it was a poor seller. Just my $0.02.

    Actually no, I keep asking my father to call the guy who ordered for us, but he keeps refusing because it would be "embarrassing". >_>

    Y'now I really don't mind long waiting times, but I just can't stand not knowing when it will arrive.

    I know some people who sell locally in like flea markets and stuff [​IMG] Bamboogaming is a nice place to order from if you can only pay via Direct Deposit Express (bank transfer), however you can order from anywhere else - most of the time it ships from somewhere in Asia.
