Is it normal for a small packet from US to Canada to take a month or more?

Hey everyone,

So I won some make up items from a seller on ebay. I have purchased twice from her before without any issues. Anything I order from the US I normally get them in about 10-12 business days. I won the items on Oct. 11 and she shipped them on Oct. 12.

As of today, it has been 3 weeks (17 business days) and there has been no sign of my package. She always ships her items via First Class Mail. I'm thinking that the package has been lost . If that's the case, that would really suck b/c not only did I really want those items but she's one of my favourite sellers. I know the most obvious thing is to contact her, but I'm wondering if I should wait til sometime next week just to make sure? Also, if the items have been sent to the wrong location, does the post office redirect them?

It just doesn't seem normal for small packages like this to take more than a month.....The only other time this has happened was last year (jeans took 3 weeks to arrive).

Thanks!

Of course, you should contact the seller ASAP if you feel smth is wrong. I had two of my packages (with tracking) returned to me in the past just because the buyers decided to wait for more than a month to let me know the package didn't arrive! If they'd advise me after 2-3weeks we'd track them and catch them on time. I cannot track every single package every day just yo see the status, also often the package is delIvered but may show up as not delivered for several days sometimes.

In you case, there's no tracking, but still. Packages don't get lost in post that often. It still may arrive. Don't worry. And the nice seller should handle the case in a nice way ;) good luck!

Don't forget to confirm the address the seller sent the package to

Oh really?! Ugh! Ok, I'm really hoping it's just being held at customs for whatever reason then. The weird thing is, I've ordered some stuff at least a week or more later than these items but I have received those already! I've never had anything lost in the mail before. Fingers crossed!!

Hopefully you'll get it soon! I did buy something on Oct24th and had it shipped First Class and it arrived this Fri (Nov 4th) so I'm not sure what could be happening with yours..

I'll bet that it will show up eventually. My longest ever in transit package took over 2 months.

I was actually just thinking shipping has been way way slow everywhere lately. I had a package sent to me just here in the US take a week and a half after the day it was shipped which is way longer than normal and I have three other packages taking their sweet time after already being a week.
