    I have a question for those who have ordered more than one item from China.... I ordered one item on the 22nd - it was accepted by China post on the 24th - coming registered mail - no other tracking info available. I ordered another item on the 24th - it was accepted on the 26th and was listed as sorted on the 28th... Since there seems to be a disconnect on the first item - do I have anything to worry about? Or is the tracking info from these sellers (even though I have a registered mail #) hit and miss?

    Is there a better place to look up these tracking numbers than USPS? They are coming from different sellers.

    Probably should have paid extra - but everyone here seems to get their items in a decent amount of time.

    I'm sure they're fine. They wont start being updated regularly until they hit the states. give it a few more days

    Took me about 12 days or so. I used this website for tracking, initially:http://www.track-chinapost.com/

    But I also checked USPS.com. Once it hit the states then I only used USPS.com to track where it was within the US.

    They will scan the tracking barcode @ a customs receiving center, most likely in San Francisco if it's from China.

    It shipped the 26th.

    You have nothing to worry about. I had something sent from China. Ordered on the 24th-

    29th it said it was held in customs..
    30th it said it was released.. Im guessing west coast.
    On the SAME day it was at my house in Texas

    I still have a registered package rrXXXXXXXcn that only shows accepted 11/24 by China Post - (ordered 11/21)

    and another raXXXXXXXcn that says accepted china post 11/26 - preparing for shipment 11/28 (Ordered 11/23)

    No changes since 11/28

    the track-chinapost doesn't show either of these packages existing - I'll try the second one (packagtrackr)

    Cheers

    ----------

    Is that website packagetrackr for real? If so - it is fantastic! It shows much more information than USPS or china post - it even states that my packages may be in the US....

    I will definitely bookmark it!

    Thank you....

    Yes of course it's real! I too had a package coming from China last month and the china post website Would not accept the tracking number a seller gave me. So after about 5 days I thought the guy was scamming me. So i contacted him and he linked me to the website. It's way better than anything else I've ever used with reguards to tracking, even a companies own website :D

    It has a huge list of companies from all over the world and it works :D

    I have purchased a couple single item things from ebay and the both provided shipping. Updates were slow and took about 3 weeks to arrive.

    Try to track parcel by China Post Track
    Good service to track package from most popular delivery companies
