Thanks guys. If it happens, we're prepared. Typical high-tech sector BS.

Company A merges with Company B, Newly Formed Company looks to eliminate areas of overlap and eventually send most jobs overseas.

We'll see.  

Hate to hear that DnB, but best of luck to you guys!

Quick update on the order. Purchase has been processed, but I haven't received the itemized invoice yet, so I'll get totals out to everyone as soon as I get the breakdown. Thanks!

All totals have been sent out minus 2. I sent you two PMs requesting your shipping addresses so I could get your totals figured up. As soon as I get those, I'll be able to get your totals to you. The order should be arriving any day now too! bounce

Be glad to have you aboard for the next one Bugs!

Latest update on the current shipment, it was showing as arriving in Chicago on 4/1, so it's still just the waiting game.

No worries, I actually have grown a bit impatient as well. The last orders have always arrived with a couple of weeks after shipment, so I contacted the postal service this morning. They called back and left a message with the update. It is what I figured happened with a delay this long. They said it is in customs right now and it can be held for up to 30 days after they receive it. If this is the case, it should start moving within the next week or two at the latest, but I will give them a call back Monday to see exactly when they received it to get a better timeline. Sorry to all for the delay, hope they get done what they need to and get it moving!

Unfortunately, this latest update isn't much of an update at all Neutral

According to everything in the USPS's system, it is still sitting in customs in Chicago and hasn't entered the postal system, yet their tracking shows it arrived at the USPS facility in Chicago on 4/17?? As far as I know, ISC is customs, so I'm going to call the local USPS consumer affairs department tomorrow when they open. Sorry, there isn't better news. This is by far the longest a shipment has ever taken to arrive.

Anyone know if the bosun they sell is scented or un? I asked them but they don't know. Have one of you got bosun from there before? It's the one G&H I wish was available scented in the US

So it seems like the 500 g plugs are about 100chf or $100 which is basically double what 500 g bulks sell for in the us. I really want to place an order from them but it's hard to justify paying double. How does it work with customs is there a chance customs will confiscate the order?

Nismo, just wondering if you were able to call and find anything out.

Bugs, you'll have to contact them about the Bosun, not sure if it's scented or not.

John, the latest update is what I posted on the 10th. USPS says it's still sitting in customs in Chicago and they have no control over it. I did contact Synjeco and Daniel is going to contact Swiss Post to have them look into it as well. I'm fairly sure they're going to come back with the same info as USPS...customs. Waiting to hear back from Daniel and the 17th will be the arbitrary "they can hold it up to 30 days" timeframe, so still a waiting game at this point. I do apologize for the delay, it has come as quite the surprise, as there hasn't been an issue in the past. Again, looks like we got the short straw this go around.

We shipped some beer glasses to a friend in Australia last month. After 2 weeks of it sitting in customs in Melbourne I called USPS. They said there was a massive worldwide customs delay and the problem was actually worse here than abroad. It sounds like it got hung up in the craziness in customs.

Is there a law about importing tobacco from Switzerland? Does anyone know the specifics like are you taking a risk whenever you order that customs will confiscate the package? Could customs have confiscated your order since it was large?

Meh. These things happen...always a risk when ordering internationally. Actually, I'm surprised this is the first time it's happened to me (I take snuff, so I seem to always have a shipment on the way from MrSnuff.com, also located abroad).

Tobacco from Switzerland garners a bit closer inspection by US Customs because a good majority of the Cuban cigars that make their way to the states do so by way of Switzerland. But to answer your question, no, as long as you ordered something that is legal to ship and legal to own, they have to let it through to you...eventually.
