It takes about one month.

I ordered 2 products from the same Chinese seller in 2 consecutive days over a week ago, until now none of them is tracked

RB015147679CN (Sept 11)
RB015147974CN (Sept 12)

He claims there is some error in the system so they didn't get tracked but they are actually moving forward and on the way to me. However, I really cannot believe it that as many places as they pass on the way to Turkey they were never tracked anywhere. Has such a huge delay in tracking ever happened to some of you guys and how can I check if these tracking codes are fake? Thanks for any help.

don't worry Hasan,
the tow items were still in Hangzhou post office international parcel center on September 20th.
i guess the packing or checking procedures are a little bit complicated than normal domestic items, that's way it takes more time.
just wait patiently.
good luck!

Hello All Again, I wrote last night about a package my friend ordered from China from a company she has bought from the past. Anyway, I had her place an order for me & as of Sept.15,2012 it still states its in Shenzhen China ( which I know is customs) anyway I paid for rush shipping 2-3 day & as far as USPS they said theirs nothing on their end other then showing they've just received information that they were going to be receiving a package but the company told my friend just a couple hours ago that they "KNEW" for a fact the package was no longer in China. So how would they know if the USPS site & local post office states otherwise? Tracking # is LK35506380CN

may be just because the USPS & local post office site did not update the information in time.
Did you check the USPS site, it says your item is preparing for shipment, i believe you will receive it soon.

Hello, I am In some serious need of help. My friend has always from a certain company in China for quite sometime. Well, they had a laptop for sale so I purchased it for my daughters 14th bday Friday. It states it's still in Shenzhen.
Tracking # LK395506380CN
Also, I paid for 2-3 business days. So it would arrive on time for her biryhday.

the parcel is needed to be checked at the Shenzhen Customs, that's way it stays in Shenzhen for a few days, but it will be delievered to the US after the check. just wait patiently and hope it will arrrive on time.
Have a nice day!

Can anyone tell me how long I should be patient for? Today it's been exactly 3 months since shipment.

your package arrived in Guangzhou on August 23, and passed the check at Guangzhou Customs on August 25.
i guess it is prepared to be delivered to you. Just be patient.
you can call the hot line of China post at 86 10 11183. or you can consult the local postal office.

package sent from china to me

i cant find it in the post site.

It was being checked the Shanghai Customs on August 24. i guess it is on the way to your country.


For delivery a package from Shenzhen/China Mailand to Romania which is the cheapest option, if I can work with China Post Office in Shenzhen.
I need an email address for contact.

i suggest you use DHL, TNT、UPS、FEDEX, China post is the slowest one.

maybe the item is still not being delivered because it was weekends on July the 21st and 22nd. try to track it a few days later.

I sent a package to Beijing by USPS Express Mail. It arrived in Beijing and delivery was attempted on July 3rd. I can not find out any additional information. Can you help me track this package?

your item was delivered from Shenzhon on June 20th, and arrive in Guangzhou the next day. the last status of it is that it was at Guangzhou customs on June 22, 2012, and the Guangzhou Customs released it on the same day. so i guess your item is on the way to Pakistan, just wait patiently.
