    Default Postal System

    Hello(First time poster)
    I am currently worried about a package i bought from ebay.
    I've been hearing allot of stories how things get lost and never show up but i would like some help to ensure that i get what i bought.
    I currently live in Santo Domingo around Los Trinitaros(Is that spelled right?) and i just want to know what are my chances that what i ordered gets to me, The object at hand is 100cm long and i bought two of them.
    Can anyone tell me if there is a place i can go to check if and when it arrives or if i can just wait at my house for it.
    I assume i used the regular shipping system.

    Any help would be of great help to ease my frustration.
    And i mean ANY small detail would be nice, An adress to check, Number to call.
    I was told my package would get here in 20-40 days and its only been around 7 but still i am extremely worried

    I, and most others here in the DR, use mail forwarding services.Mine is in Miami, it's "Express Parcel Service, or just "EPS".
    There are many others.
    I use "Amazon.com", "Walmart",JC Pennies" and other USA on line vendors.
    You just give them the address of your "shipper" and they will send your "Stuff" to them.
    The shipper brings your package into the DR. It comes by "AIR" and you will arrive about 3 days after it arrives in Miami.
    EPS sends you constant emails tracking your packages.
    When it arrives in Miami, when it's, "In The Air", when it is in DR customs, when they have it, and when you can come to get it.
    In 18 years, I have never lost a package, or had any damages.
    If you did use the US Postal service, which ships it to the DR postal, "Dis Service" you just have to wait and see what happens.
    NEXT TIME, use a "Shipper".

    The odds of getting it are not in your favor.
    Have you ever gotten ANY mail at your house from the D.R. postal system?

    Many places they do not deliver to and you need to get your mail from your local D.R. post office.
    If your "package" is something one of the postal employee likes, well then "Kiss, Kiss Goodbye".
    I'm still waiting for a pack of pictures I sent my girlfriend back 20+ years ago to arrive.

    I am estimating a 10% chance of your receiving your package. Please let us know if you do get it. It may be a couple of months.

    Is this China Post in Hong Kong? If it is they are very reliable, but the problem is not China. It is the DR Postal Service. Take the advice of CCCCCCCCCCCCCC and use EPS in the DR in the future.

    I've used Aeropaq to ship small packages to Santo Domingo. Fast and reliable.

    Follow everyone else's advice.. use a courier next time
