garvani: Useless couriers are not just found in New Zealand. I ordered a couple of tshirts from a custom design place in the states, they use DHL, great i thought having had fast delivery times through them before. Not so much with this one. Said items were purchased on the 6th of October and here is the tracking information as of today:
global mail is like regular mail. it's dhl express that is fast.
that said i found both take around 9 days to get to nz. like if order in the weekend it'll come wed week when they send on the monday. which you could call 8 days as that's tuesday in nz.
actually that was usps, global mail is actually 7 days, send monday arrive monday.
untracked uk mail comes in 6 days though.
