I bought an item off eBay USA and it is being sent to me here in magic Oz. Expected date of arrival is in June so about 6 weeks or so.

Purchased on 23 April and the seller sent it off right away. So far it has been 12 days and managed to move from Connecticut to Kentucky via New Jersey and Ohio.

It has been sitting in Kentucky now for 9 days!!

A previously purchased item in the USA also had some weird movements from Texas to Kentucky to Chicago and then to Los Angeles where it sat for over two weeks. It then got lost in the 'ether' for a a couple of weeks and then showed up in Oz. It then took two weeks to get from Sydney to Melbourne.


So far here is the actual tracking of the item;

https://parcelsapp.com/en/shops/ebay That is an app that may be of help if things get sticky with what you see when you go to eBay. I was sending a large envelope to England back in January. For starters USPS lost the tracking on the item after it supposedly left Cincinnati. Their assumption was that it had reached Erlanger but that I should check with the recipient. I didn't even try that after getting a run around on the phone one day from eBay. I never saw anything in tracking after that and finally checked the number using the app above. The package had arrived in England safely and they showed all the intermediate stops even after arriving in England. Good luck with your items. I had luck back before Covid using eBay's overseas shipping to the UK. But now they're not much better than the post office.
PS The last item I shipped did go from Miwaukee to Cincinnati to Erlanger and back to Chicago before heading for Canada. And took over 3 weeks to do it!

John,

Thanks for that link.

I'll use it to track the item. I'll check on it in another week or so.

Things must be really messed up with the mail from the USA to Australia. Last letter from the USA to Australia took exactly one month to get here.

I am still waiting on another letter from the USA and it has been 40 days now.

With our every other day residential mail service here in Oz which was implemented because of all the lock downs/virus crapola mail delivery takes longer. Even with everything here almost back to normal, the mail service delivery schedules haven't reverted to normal.

If I don't get the letter on Friday this week then the next mail delivery won't be until Tuesday.

Airmail packages from Japan to Oz are running about two weeks and sea mail large packages are running about 6 weeks..............
