FOR ALL PACKAGES OUTSIDE EUROPE: Shipping times can vary a lot depending on
Customs & Shipping Company speed. We can not control this. For China (& rest of
Asia) & US allow at least 2 to 3 weeks. Depending on the situation it can take
up to 1.5 month. Rare cases of even 2 months have been seen to CHINA (and rest
of ASIA), this has to do with slow customs procedures. This also influences the
tracking data shown online. Please be patient!
