Shipping time
#1
Hi,

I just received a shipping confirmation on my Pine64 on Friday. Yay!  I am excited for its arrival but am not sure about the timing.  Does anyone have any real world experience about how long it takes for a shipment to arrive after confirmation?  I am based on the east coast of the US and have tried USPS tracking and they have no record of the shipment.  This is not problematic because they usually don't until the package arrives in the US.

On a side note, I ordered another Kickstarter product that took 4 weeks from China and so I am not sure if this shipping is similar.  I hope note but am hoping for guidance so I can set my expectations appropriately.

Thank you!

To US is using EMS shipping method, this normally takes about 5-7 business days.

I received my shipping confirmation about two (yes 2) weeks after my pine-board already arrived here (Germany)

Hey you should be able to track your shipment via 17track.net

I too am wondering how long shipping will take, I'm in East coast Canada...

Anyway I can't wait to get my hands on this little beast!!

@NEPHYTZ, I saw your post with that tracking link in another thread.  I checked that tracking site along with USPS and both say that the number cannot be found.  Does yours show something different?  I am wondering whether I should be concerned.....

Hi,

Just a quick update. @TLim suggested that shipping times are 5-7 days; however, this is misleading. The challenge is that a shipping notification from Pine does not actually mean that the board has shipped. For example, I received a shipping notification on 4/16 which got me excited thinking about an arrival 5-7 days later. BUT, China Post EMS did not actually acknowledge receiving the package until about a week later on 4/22. I am guessing that the 5-7 days will start on 4/22 but am not certain and so the time from when I received the notification to when I receive is likely to be closer to 14 days.

It is frustrating as I have been patiently waiting, but these changes drive me nuts.

I even got my confirmation for the shipment 14 days _after_ i already received my board
So i wouldn't give that much to the confirmations...

Your Pine64 can also get stuck in a US customs office, mine has been like that in Chicago for 11 days now and could stay there for weeks. :^)
