Packages within Europe basically as normal.
Two shirts from the US took about a month (from California), that's happened before though too due to customs etc

These examples of packages arriving after months give me some hope that my package posted from Sweden to Hungary on 15 April may eventually arrive, although it was sent unregistered and the distance is far less than between the US and Europe...

My package (with two Masonna 7"s) finally arrived today. It took 7 weeks for it to get from Sweden to Hungary. It definitely made my day.

I'm still waiting on a package from Finland to the US since March 30! I know it's not on the seller as they have a good reputation and the world is in utter chaos. Glad to see other people are getting their shit and I still have hope but it's frustrating. There are worse things happening in the world and I'll continue to be patient (*besides this post). Most things domestically have gotten here but are still taking a couple of weeks to a month. All hail the worldwide noise distribution network and I hope the USPS survives the recent attacks on their existence.

Just received a package sent from Germany in under two weeks while another from Germany remains undelivered after over five weeks.

Many others still missing from elsewhere for upwards of a month... some larger packages, some just one CD.

Still not able to ship. I’m half expecting it to be enabled any day now, half thinking it might stay closed longer due to the unrest.

There's updates on the restrictions posted a few times a week but they have recently been about a lot of African and South American countries accepting shipments. Australia and USA are without any movement, and the packages I've sent to Canada seem to have gone by boat as they have taken over a month to get across the Atlantic.

Speaking as a Canadian who just bought that Sewer Election box you listed I have no issue waiting until “safe” to send....

I hate to say it, but I think that they are in Canada, but remain undelivered. Since the pandemic struck, I've had packages from all over the place take months to arrive, even after the tracking is updated with something along the lines of "sent to destination country". Canada Post is a shit show right now and I honestly believe that international mail is just sitting in warehouses, waiting to be processed.

I just received a package from France in about two weeks, while packages from Brazil and Germany, to name a couple, are still unaccounted for after upwards of two and one month(s), respectively... again - no rhyme or reason to how it works, from what i can tell! If it squeaks through, it squeaks through?

ABSOLIUTELY SHIT !!!!

Coming from Australia, the island at the asshole of the world, international post is almost non existant.

Australia post have cancelled all post of smaller air mail items so cassettes can no longer be posted unless you pay $25 for a fully tracked service where it is usually only $8.95

CDs must now be sent without cases in order to slip them in as "documents" only mail.

Because we have shut our boarders there is very minimal air freight leaving the country.

I have been told by my postal worker that there are warehouses of mail being stock piled.

So yeah, its grim down here.

I have so much international stuff to release on my label but im holding off on release dates so that people can actually order the stuff.

I just received tracking updates for an outgoing international package that hadn't been updated in roughly seven weeks. It appears as though it was shipped surface mail to Spain due to the limitations on flights and cargo availability. I can't help but find it funny that I'm not notified until after it reaches the other side... meanwhile, some idiot already claimed on this package and forced a refund weeks ago. You would think that Paypal would adapt and prevent impatient buyers from taking action after only six weeks have elapsed.

I guess once it gets delivered you can report to Paypal with the tracking confirmation and some message that proves this tracking number was that specific order, and claim your payment.
