Just got an email about the Geekvape Zeus X Mesh on a flash sale this week for $9.99 but damn it...it ships from the HK warehouse which doesn't work for me in Canada.

As you try to check out it mentions SingPost only, that it is presently not working but that they will ship it once it is. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I know what you mean. I have a large order held up because of it and now they want me to pay an extra $90 to upgrade from SingPost to DHL. I told that place to source more cheaper options and get back to me.

Think yourself lucky. I ordered a $45USD Mi-Band-5 and now they sent me a message saying they want another $27USD to ship it.

That sucks but my order is not from here, it's from another site.

Lack of airports in Singapore and Hong Kong strikes back.
The answer to 1984 is 1973 ยง Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

Well, just placed an order, and at the moment of choosing the postal service, I went with the best service I have used for the past 7 or 8 purchases ( except for the one that took 3 months ). PostNL is the fastest route from CHina to Barcelona. Of course, when things are normal.
But if we lose three or four purveyors, that means PostNL is gonna get submerged with packages....

Back to square one.

At least where I was concerned, in Canada the source spot only offered SingPost. Not NLPost or even DHL.

Coming up to 8 weeks since SingPost claims my package was sent to Canada.

3 months in total since it left FT warehouse.
I just hope it eventually is put into the system of Canada Post.


As it is, I will have to repurchase that product at home very soon if it doesn't show up by the end of the month.
