Australia,
8 days so far, for an auction lot (simple envelope) to Travel Sydney to Perth
We only get 2 deliveries per week, so expect next Tuesday, then being 10 days. If it misses that one, then almost 2 weeks.

I've been experiencing delays with tracked mail. It seems to go into a distribution center sit there for five or six days, and then re-appear en route to another center where it may or may not go through another delay before moving on toward its destination.

Yes, seems to be 2-3 days longer than normal here.

Yes. Untracked 1st class mail 8-14 days in most cases - where it used to take 4-5 days tops. Sign of the times - gotta roll with it.

There may be delays, but nevertheless I've been getting my domestic eBay purchases within or before the estimated delivery window. On average, they've been taking about a week. The only exceptions have been when the seller is slow in putting the stuff in the mail (I occasionally buy from a seller who was notorious in this regard even before COVID-19 gave them an "excuse"). Even purchases from the U.K. have been reaching me in California in 10-14 days.
