The first could be usps "first class international". It takes longer (2-6 weeks). You may need to pay your country's customs/duty fees.

Second could be usps "priority". This is faster and it has a higher insurance value. Plus, there's a chance that ppcs is paying for any customs/duty fees.


USPS does not provide any tracking. I've shipped ~30 packages overseas with them and I learned early on that they don't offer for international shipments.


You take your chances. Most ppl that I send stuff too opt for the cheap International First Class but I've had a package take ~6 weeks to get delivered and several that were held up by customs.




Why not order from a UK or EU site? You can even order the top from EK directly. wink.gif

I would recommend aquatunning.com for yah thumb.gif

Can you actually track them? I know I've sent a few priority mail ones which come with free tracking (online purchase though) and they never show anything. I've asked multiple times and all the post office clerks say that there's really no tracking for international shipments. Maybe you're in or near a border city?

Yes It always makes a couple stops before it makes it to canada and I can monitor it's status the whole way. Once it comes to canada I can simply enter the tracking number into canadapost website. Maybe they only offer this for Canada.

ah ok, it definitely tracks in the US but once in Canada, its up to your post I guess. Didn't know that Canadian post was able to accept the #. I've heard FedEx can too. But it proves that usps doesn't track your package all the way. I know for Canada, a recipient was able to use the receipt to find his package. Ultimately, you can't say the same for every country. One of the many reasons usps is on the chopping block, they're really not the best wink.gif

No they are both the same exact class of shipping, tracking IS available, and they are not the higher class of payment.

Customs duties have nothing what so ever to do with the postage rates-i pay my own duty fees, and anyway, the EK top falls way under the amount of non taxed goods (50 euro is the cut off point for no paid duty).


BOTH were/are USPS prioroty 3-5 days (insurance is charged in accordance with the value of the goods being sent wink.gif )

EK stopped selling clear plexi tops 7 months ago-Gregor over @ EK was my first port of call.

Same applies to Aquatuning-no clear tops either.

I did not say that i was referring to PPC mate, please dont give the wrong impression smile.gif

Although, i will give you another example of ridiculous postage fees-go to sidewinder, enter for example 4 m of durelene tubing and see what the postage is to the states-then enter as destination some European country, and watch the amount sky rocket.

So i get my US retailer that i shop from to buy the durelene for me and add it to my order, and i pay him for US postage rates+5 dollars as a thank you.

The truth is, that many US dealers when dealing with overseas customers charge way over the top, and there is also no uniformity in their prices, they quote what they want, because they know that for a customer from Europe for example to be shopping at their store, means unavailability of whatever they are looking for in Europe.

Basic supply/demand costing laws-but all that does is alienate their overseas customers in the long run wink.gif

I would just move and buy something current and immediately available wink.gif, but that's just me thumb.gif.
cheers.gif

read my post carefully-and you are missing the point-screw the customer over for a top, and have them not shop ever again @ your shop, or provide decent postal rates and encourage them to return, thus making more money in the long run-obvious answer mate-ok ill draw a line under this, im done with this topic since im way OT tongue.gif

Read the few posts after the one you said "this". Try not to sound like your complaining of shipping if you're looking for an EOL product or item. If you desperately want an item no longer being made, buy it from where ever. I would just move on and buy something current and immediately available wink.gif, but that's just me thumb.gif.

I've also tracked orders shipped by USPS Priority Mail International, from FrozenCPU, to the Vancouver area. Same as NewHighScore mentioned. But you're right that USPS doesn't track the shipment to your door, only to the border. But the shipping cost is far less than UPS charges.

Yes, UPS and FedEx are a bit pricey for consumer shipments. USPS tends to be better so I ship from them. Also, their site allows you to fill out the customs form immediately online.

Hi peeps, I am no longer water cooling my PC, leaks hurt too much!mad.gif
But I thought I could post some pics of my water cooling loop from work, I will post some figures later. I'm trying to work out how many 120mm fans we could fit.biggrin.gif
ENJOY:thumb:

around 2000mm outer diameter, the tank holds 40ton is for expansion, this is a closed loop system.

Loop pumps, draw 330amps at 440volts each. We run 2 at a time in rotation.
