The shipping estimate for default "Registered Air Mail" to Canada was outdated. We are very sorry about this. Estimated shipping time to Canada has been increased earlier today.

For faster service to Canada, we recommend the following options:

Expedited Service to Canada


Register Air Mail by PostNL

Sweet, wouldnt have ordered if i knew it would take this long. Do other chinese sites take as long as fasttech? This is my first time ordering and its leaving a sour taste in my mouth.

Sorry for the experience, HyDrOpOnIc1987. FastTech does use shippers that are common to all/most Chinese sites.

Your order (with tracking R***CN) was shipped by China Post. Right now, about 50% of all Canadian orders via China Post are delivered in 30 days, with the rest in 60 days.

This is double of what customers got earlier this year, and it's unclear why the delivery time lengthened suddenly.

I will continue looking into this tomorrow. The good news, if I could say so, is that the packages are still in transit and are not lost :/.

We apologize and sincerely thank you for your patience.

Indeed, just like I said,you are going to get your stuff but CP does some shenanigans on our side...they are federal workers and are a precious bunch; on my end, they wont deliver if the package requires a signature; you`ll have to go and fetch them.So contact CS here and ask for a no sig delivery just to make sure.

FT is still my #1 outlet.

Oh, they request sigs on delivery through canada? Sounds like extra red tape that could be ignored with an improper label lol

covid, lockdowns and general lack of air transport have wreaked havoc.

orders from FT via canaduh post e-packet or free ems used to take 2 weeks or less, 3 weeks max!

My current order is at 41 days today .. last scan was march 14 where package was finally handed to the carrier for transport (still in china after 18 days)

hopefully the package will scan soon at canaduh customs and then that fun begins where it either moves to you within a week or spends days/week+ in customs

be patient, have a beer or rum or three 😎🍻🥃💨💨

Items may be already in Canada, just stuck at the border\customs. Try using postal ninja for tracking.



I don't live in Canada, but I have family up there, they dislike ordering "cross continental" because of the haste customs creates.
