    This is a question for people who live in the UK (London more precisely). I wanted to know as to which shipping company is usually used when receiving the product you ordered. Royal Mail? Parcelforce? UPS? or some other one. Thx in advance~ [​IMG]

    EDIT: oh and soz if this has been asked before, i couldn't find it in the search.

    hi,

    if you choose the standard shipipng (non express// non expedited) it will come by Royal Mail, I think.
    if someone in the UK could confirm it'd be appreciated!

    I ordered it as registered, which is the same thing except tracking as far as i know.

    Thanks for help [​IMG]

    While on the subject, is it still Royal Mail if you choose the Xmas delivery option? [​IMG]

    Ordered on the 24th so the 5-10 days isn't far away and was just wondering who to expect [​IMG]

    I think the expedited shipping (new UK option) uses Home Delivery Network. But I can't say for sure right now [​IMG] I'll try to get clarification.

    my last order that I received from october took 7weeks.
    It been 4 weeks on my other packages that i am still waitng. So far. Through free shipping. Yes I know they change services to the UK.
    But I ordered before the change.

    Ah not too bad then, thanks for that! [​IMG]

    Any reason the Xmas option doesn't give a tracking number though?
