sent a parcel recorded 1st class on saturday. still not arrived at the destination 5 days later. rather annoying as the buying is sending me an email everyday being sarcy about it not arriving.

anyone else having problems?

A Blu-Ray I ordered was despatched from the store on Tuesday, RM 1st Class, and it hasn't arrived yet!

Yes.

Ordered something on Saturday, dispatched on Monday... no sign yet.

Mazuma sent a cheque in the same way at 5pm on Monday and it arrived the next day.

Go figure...

It seems to be random for me, I ordered some tshirts and they took about a week to arrive (came yesterday) but other things I've ordered at 3pm have arrived the next day.

i wonder if there's a correlation between the places packages are coming from and them being delayed?

mine are coming from manchester and licoln if that helps :/

Funnily enough I had exactly the same, ordered blu-ray fast and furious box set, took 6 working days to arrive after it was dispatched, the week before I ordered something big and heavy from poland on a friday, dispatched same day, arrived monday monring.

Quicker to order things from halfway around the planet than it is your own country.

Had a couple of DVD boxsets shipped from a vendor in Kent to Nottingham late Tuesday afternoon. Came on Thursday morning and that was normal first class post ... seemed pretty normal to me.

Bought a game from the members market on here, it arrived a day after expected. Nothing to worry about but there's a few delays going on I'd imagine.
