I can tell you that I have an other item in shipping as well, I haven't had an update for over 2 months. Just only recently got told by the shipping courier that it will take a minimum of 2 months longer before I might even recieve it.
The ongoing pandemic has really put a mark on international shippings. Some countries don't even use flights anymore due to the virus, only sea shipping and that takes way longer. Something that flights takes around a few days, sea takes 1-2 months.
With this said though, I'm aware that the waiting game is no fun and not having anymore information for some time can literally feel like it's killing you.
Thank you both for the response!The next tracking update after the initial "origin post is preparing shipment" is when it's processed through customs in the destination country, which can take a while depending how backed up they are (can be a lot during holidays and/or pandemics). Your tracking on 17track probably looks something like this:
There may be a date code in the Chinese language section which tells you the date it was scheduled to leave Taiwan. If it's after that date and you haven't seen any other updates, it's safe to assume it's sitting in customs in the destination country waiting to be processed.
You shouldn't rely only on 17track for tracking, especially for countries outside the US. Tracking through the local courier's website will provide more information on how to pay import fees (not required for the US) or to arrange delivery.
I did visit USPS site and it just says they are awaiting the package to one of their facilities. I also checked Chunghwa Post's website and if I am reading the info correctly it looks like my package departed on May 6th, but if the package is on a ship that would explain why I haven't seen anything yet. If it went via air then it's probably just sitting at customs.
Thanks again, patiently waiting as this is the last piece of the puzzle for my new build.
