Very rarely is the tracking information "real time".
09-24-2007, 11:01 AM #53
I don't think so
How do you explain one thing. The item left HK Sept 16th. The tracking still says as of today (Sept 24th) the same thing. I've bought badminton items online before from another source, and it doesn't take that long.
Its my first time buying anything from this company. Not a good first impression don't you think?

That's NOT Badmintonshoponline's fault, it's HKPost, Badmintonshop cannot control what HK Post does.
I say again, I've purchased many things from many different shops in China, Taiwan and HK and the tracking is not updated real time. Many times instance like yours have happened and a few hours later I receive the item. After I receive the item, I go online and check the status and it still says it left HK on the 16th, when I received it on the (say) 24th.
Assuming Badmintonshop sent the item on 9/16, you cannot blame them for HK Post's delivery time frame.
You need to be clear here. I'm not for or against Badmintonshop, I'm just stating you need to be clear it's HK Post you should be concerned with.

Another thing: Canada Post and even our great USPS. They're not always real time with the tracking unless it's Overnight or Express Mail where you pay a premium. I'm not surprised if you receive you package today or tomorrow.
Yet one more thing: customs. Sometimes, they flag your package (randomly), open it up for inspection, who knows. There are many things that can happen.
All you can do is wait. Besides, relax, like you said, it's only a pair of shoes.

It's a multitude of things actually. Who knows what happens once the package is handed over to the postal services . . .

I understand all your concerns and comments. My point is that SpeedPost, according to the HK postoffice indicated it takes two business days. Also, when I checked at the HK postal website with my tracking #, it says "Outward Ordinary Parcel". Shouldn't it says something to the extent that it is a Speedpost parcel?
Anyways, hope to receive it before Thurs.

Does anyone know how long it takes to ship from HK to Canada via air parcel? (not speedpost)

Fastest: In 4 days.
Longest: In 3 weeks.
Be patient. Once the items is shipped, there is nothing you could do.

it also depends on where you live in canada, HK post hands it over to Canada post once it reaches the country so depending on your area, your delivery service might take longer. I live outside toronto and there is a canada post office near me, so my delivery arrived within the week even when i used regular post from badmintonshoponline.

I agree with DanKAlot... The USPS or other postal service may or may not be the only factor. When Shipping "Goods" via international route. Custom check point in both country may delay shipment, especially large shipment or goods above certain commercial value.

I've bought many items online from badminton stuff to non badminton items. I know how long they usually take. If I can purchase the same good locally, I would already.
To be fair to badmintonOnline and HK post office, I found out it was a misunderstanding. I had requested for SpeedPost, but was shipped via regular air parcel. That's why it is taking longer.
I just had to wait and hope it doesn't take weeks.

Item finally arrived. Took two weeks via regular air parcel from HK to Canada. Maybe faster for West coast Canada, but I'm in the middle, so took slightly longer.

I recently bought two MP99s from this site for a fantastic price. The price was so low i had reservations about the authenticity. However they were 100% genuine. Took just over a week to arrive. Overall couldn't be happier.
