Just trying to get a feel for shipping times to Australia using NewEgg’s free ‘World EggSaver Standard’ shipping. Their website says it takes 4-7 business days to arrive. In my case, my item cleared customs in Sydney after 7 days, and since then it’s been 6 days of radio silence. Delivery is for Perth.
After some investigation it turns out that NewEgg uses DHL eCommerce which is DHL’s bottom-of-the-barrel shipping. Once it hits Australia it apparently gets passed to AusPost. No tracking number works for AusPost and all DHL tracking updates stopped after the item cleared customs.
I have purchased from NewEgg a couple years ago but can’t remember what the turnaround time was. Wish they had specified in the shipping details that it gets passed to the local postal service (instead of implying that it was door-to-door), as I likely would’ve paid extra for express.
For those who also ordered from NewEgg, how long did yours take?
