    i ordered a R4 at shop temp on nov 10th, it said it was shipped two days later.
    i understand that even though its shipped, it may not be out of hong kong yet,
    so is their anyway for me to check when my package is exited hong kong yet?
    BTW i used the free shipping option.

    November 10th? It should come to you quite soon, then. It might be in a plane, or something.

    If you picked Registered Mail then you can log in to ShopTemp and get the tracking number. Use the tracking number on the provided site links.

    To help people time it: I placed an order on Oct. 31 that Posted on Nov 4. From Nov 4-25 speedpost said "Foreign Acceptance". On Nov 26 it was updated as "Left Hong Kong for destination" and arrived this Wednesday (12/1).

    They say on the site that it can take 2-5 weeks for delivery unless you pay for Express shipping so it's still within the window ShopTemp provided.

    I see that you are in the US.

    I just got mine on the 2nd and mine shipped on Nov 2nd, so it took a month.

    The way that I tracked it was via the USPS.com website. Just use the tracking number that they provided. It will show up on the USPS site once it leaves Hong Kong and then arrives in the US and then to you.

    Hope that this helps.

    Michael.

    There's no way to track the package if you picked the free shipping, you need to have picked registered for that.

    i ordered mine on the 14th, got posting on the 17th and has been at the Shenzhen transit office since the 18th.
