    first-class being their slowest International services, definitely more than 10days
    I've no experience with the first-class, but the time taken for priority is accurate.

    For non-holiday season, typically takes between 7 - 14 days to reach you (Singapore). Their tracking information is quite useless...
    Sometimes "sink" Post can take upto 5 working days to deliver your parcel (my personal experience), if after 14 days you don't see your item, you can try calling Singpost hotline and give them your tracking number

    From what you've said, that means, most probably I'll only received my stuff probably from this Friday (20th May) onwards?
    So if by next Thurs (26th May), if I don't received my items, I better give S-Post a call?

    Thanks for the information.

    From my experience, you should be receiving #1, within the next 7 days.

    #2, anywhere from 7-14 days.

    good luck! Don't worry so much. It's only a matter of time. Unless you need it in a hurry, then.. More good luck! :x

    just sent some stuff back to Singapore recently using USPS. Think they are pretty good and price is pretty ok.

    As for shipment time, I think it takes about 5 days for Express and 9 days for priority thereabouts.

    Bought lens caps from HK previously.....take less than 10 days to receive them each time.

    USPS ok used them before, takes about 10-14 days from USA, sometime longer 3-4 weeks depending on where the parcel originated.

    I've used USPS, before few times, Speedpost will come knocking my door during weekdays afternoon.
    So far no bad experience from them. Is it fast? not that fast, allow 2 weeks wait is the norm. eBay should be pretty safe, there's a buyer protection and you pay via paypal, they can resolve issues for you. I have not report any issues yet.

    Aside even for Auspost, HK Post or Chinapost, the waiting is about 2 weeks or less depending on working days. they'll go via Speedpost, they may open up your boxes to inspect before dispatch. So far I only encountered one misplaced eBay purchase via HK Post, so end up I chose to receive refund over resend of item. No report was made since the seller just transfer the fund back to my paypal.

    That means, for my items from USA, it may come anytime from now till next week? But it may also be a longer wait for my items?
    On top of that, if the seller on ebay is in the "97-99.9% positive feedback" range, most probably, the person is reliable to get a refund if I don't receive my items after a month?


    Thanks all..

    I beg your pardon, eye paste stamp lah.

    Last time, when I have ordered something from a ebay seller in hk, it took about 2 weeks for the package to reach me.
    Got a tracking number and website from the seller to see where the package is.
    If I remember correctly. it took less than a week for the package to reach Singapore. Then several days more from somewhere in sg to reach my residence.
    Maybe the poor delivery guy has to go on foot....
