    i recently ordered a macbook battery in fastmac...
    i already got confirmation that they sent it out through usps.
    how long does it usually take to be delivered here in the philipines?
    anybody had experiences with fastmac already?

    i got the confirmation around Oct. 29 i think.

    Thanks in advance.

    should be a month or so. check your local post office. it may already be there but got hold...usually, the package notice in your post office is delayed.

    I believe that its not that good if the package would be sent through post office. It's based on my experience though =(

    If it is regular airmail, 3-4 weeks on off-peak. Sadly this is peak season so expect it 1-2 months. My last parcel I got last week from Australia took 2 months. I have a parcel from the US sent a month and 1 week ago is still in transit.

    Good luck and hope you get your package in a timely fashion.

    Unfortunately, I've had nothing but bad experiences with packages routed through USPS / Philippine Postal. They either show up very late or not at all.

    I, on the other hand, have had good experience with USPS, since I buy off eBay a lot -- and up until a few months ago, from online fountain pen stores as well. All of my packages arrived two weeks after they were mailed, and none of the items have been damaged while in transit. :)

    For QC area, most of the packages are dropped off at the Phil. Postal Office near East Avenue

    I hope my package arrives earlier than i expect.. bought a nice leather case for my iPhone in eBay. The postal cost was more than the item cost itself. :p my money should get its worth.

    it does takes time and the thing is they will be the one to open your package and if its an electronics etc. they charge you for taxes

    i have frequent shipments from the US using USPS EMS. they all arrive in 5 days max.

    huge savings compared to fedex.

    Hmm. I have something mailed to me today from Honolulu via EMS with tracking number. How's your experience with this? Can you really track it? My parcel has been mailed too recently for any activity to be tracked yet.

    dont forget that if any receipt or invoice is included in the package the postal service will slap you with a basic 10% charge and so many plus charges... :(
