Best shipping option for UK, please?
Would probably be helpful to others & myself to know please.
If anyone got their parcels quicker via any other postal routes to the UK?

It seems FT are still sending some epackets via Nanjing, even though they know there's a huge backlog of packets not moving & the tracking is worse than useless.

I know FT ain't personally responsible for the postal service but it's a bit off putting to put an order in & it just sitting there or worse it getting bounced back to FT.
Any info would help, cheers

Right now I am avoiding options that transit through Beijing and Nanjing.
China Post seems to have a heap of issues in those facilities. They say that they have problems "penetrating some parcels". :-)

I am in the EU and since this circus started I have had all my orders shipped with "Registered Airmail via Singapore Post". With this option the parcels are shipped from Hong Kong.
Free shipping for orders above $20. Cylindrical batteries and knives not allowed though.

Everything has reached me within 10 to 15 days so far.

Sing Post seems alright, I had an Aegis Mini (with internal battery) arrive in 7 working days from leaving FT

I wish they were bounced back to FT, that way the waiting customer could at least chose a different shipping option and get his stuff. Right now the customer has paid, FT has sent out the product and the transaction is in limbo due to Nanjing / China Post. Can't request a refund, can't change shipping method, can't legitimately request FT re-send or you eventually end up with both shipments.

I really hope they resolve the Nanjing issue soon.

i would wait now, my order is still in china now after a month, floating around Nanjing
going nowhere fast, showing the same tracking info over and over again, item leaving overseas many times
all i want to see is item landed in my country. just don't use e-packet or china post
maybe use Sing Post.

Same situation here, parcel stuck since 15th, very frustrating when I payed extra for express, hadn't been reading the forum posts since all the porn stuff was going on so had no idea there were any problems with parcels or I wouldn't have bothered ordering anything.
