    Take as long as 2-3 weeks. Get the tracking number from shipper so that you can track it online ........

    Not exactly 100% Natural but definitely the closest you can get to it

    There's a reason they don't even provide a time frame for it, cos it's the lowest tier international shipping option. Personally I've waited as long as 4-5 weeks. You're at about 2.5 weeks. What platform did you make your purchase on? I'd take note of any time limit for disputes/returns and take that into consideration.

    @zenten, if I recall correctly, the tracking number for this service is quite basic, similar to singpost's registered mail. It probably only shows when the parcel leaves US, when it arrives in destination country and when it is received. It's also known to be unreliable at times, e.g., the tracking might still show US when the recipient has received the item.

    .... well you won't get the full details but adequate information to put you at ease ...up till the point where it shows the package arriving at the destination country.

    Yup, agreed, it's better than nothing

    Just wanted to point out that it does the opposite sometimes. Haha.
