Just noticed the dates. Being USPS I still believe it could be an issue today. Talking with him personally today was more of a relief than the link above stating a similar problem, Mike's statement just reaffirms there are issues with shipping out of Southern Florida. I currently have a package that has sat for 3 days now in Memphis that is coming Fedex from HLJ, usually I get it in 3-4 days once shipped. I will still give Mate one more shot, especially since my first experience was flawless
Finally Talked with Mate, he explained the USPS sorting facility near him has been having some major issues. He backed this up with a link were several others have experienced the same problem at the same location. He also mentioned that his Email server has been having problems as well. He refunded me shipping charges and 10% of my total for the issues. This has restored enough of a trust that I will try again next time i need paint.
My order is finally showing progress on usps tracking today after he said it shipped on 3/28. I don't mind waiting but the lack of communication is what makes me mad. I sent 5 emails and messaged him directly on Facebook and the only response i got was it was the post offices fault. This was my second order and will probably be my last. No reason an order with all "in stock" products should take over a month to get.
My recent order took about 8 weeks. Have to agree it is some of the best resin I have seen. I understand a lot of the time is getting his main package out of Canada to his remailer here in the States. That is on top of his back log of orders.
I placed an order on 3/13 that supposedly shipped 3/28 that still says its in pre-shipment. Mate has responded to one of my three emails saying that he shipped it and the post office must have misplaced it and that he was going to check. That was Wednesday 4/12 and I have still not received word on its staus.
Sounds like most of you have had better luck then me. Placed an order on 3/13. Said it shipped 3/28. Trackng shows its still in pre-shipment and my emails, while recent, have gone unanswered. Previous order was very quick and smooth.
