OVERSEAS POSTAGE DELIVERY TIME

Schedule

Do take note that this is base on an estimation.

Before i mail out any packages/letters etc I will take a picture of it with time and date stamp so as to provide documented proof.

If sent date is on a weekend (Fri-Sun) or a public holiday, collection will only be done on a weekday and so post mark date might be more than 3 days from sent date.

If mail was sent at night or after collection of mail, postmark date would be the next day.


THINGS TO NOTE

I ALWAYS rate as I believe its unkind to not show gratitude upon receiving a gift.

If i have not rate you yet then most probably I have not received your mail. However, I am more than willing to wait up to 8 weeks for mail from overseas. Usually the travelling time would be 4-6 weeks.

If you do not receive my swap, kindly inform me via pm before rating and i will gladly resend via registered mail with tracking number.

As mentioned above, i ALWAYS take a picture proof of the mail with stamp and address before mailing out.
