Transit Time of USPS Packages
Transit Time of USPS Packages
For domestic packages, they usually can be delivered in about a week if you choose USPS First-Class Mail, or in 3 days if you choose USPS Priority Mail. For international packages, the transit time varies from country to country. In general, it takes 2 - 3 weeks to arrive in the east coast of Canada, most European countries, and Australia. Sometimes it can be delivered as soon as in one week, but sometimes takes up to four weeks (especially during the holiday season). Transit time to other countries and regions may be longer than 3 weeks. Weather, natural disasters, customs inspection, and other uncontrollable events can interrupt carrier's transportation flow and this is out of our control. We are not liable for the lost or damages in your package, or the delay in receiving your packages due to such unforeseeable events.

For international packages shipped by USPS Mail International, tracking service is only available to these countries and regions. International packages shipped by FedEx International Economy, FedEx International Priority, and USPS Mail Express (EMS) are trackable.
