Tracking information

If you received a tracking number in your shipping notification email, you may use various websites to tracking information. If you have any questions about your package please give your tracking code when you ask at your local post office. Enter your tracking number and click "Track":

 

Note that there may be a considerable delay between the tracking entry that it has been sent abroad, and when you see it having arrived in your own country. It's not flying around and around the world, but most likely waiting for customs clearance, or waiting for onward routing from some intermediate destination. Usually these events are not recorded in the tracking information. 

Note also that some countries do not appear to participate in the standard 2-letters + 9-numbers + 2-letters tracking scheme and in these cases, you won't be able to see tracking information in your country. It seems that Australia and Canada are two notable examples of this. 


General shipping information

Since 10th April 2018, QRP Labs shipments stopped being sent from Japan. Shipments are now taking place from Turkey. Shipping takes place using the standard post office airmail service (locally PTT). No courier is used (e.g. DHL, FedEx, UPS etc). The delivery in your country will be by your standard postal service.

If your order is in stock, then we aim to ship within 1 business day of your order placement. You will receive a notification email when your order has been shipped. 

Your shipment will generally arrive in a cardbox box sized 195 x 165 x 6mm (large orders may use larger boxes). Be aware that if this will not fit through your letterbox and you are not at home, you may need to collect the package from your neighbour or from your local mail sorting office (varies, from country to country). In cases where the shipment is small and does not contain any delicate components e.g. LCD, the shipment may alternatively be packaged in a padded envelope.

US Shipments: from time to time, certain orders may be shipped from US stock. These are shipped by USPS domestically and generally take 2-3 days to arrive. The shipment notification email will inform you if your order was shipped from US. 


Shipping statistics from Turkey, May 2018 to date

This table is based on customer feedback and we are very grateful to everyone who emailed to say their package arrived. It helped to create this table of statistics which is very useful for other customers to get an idea of how long their order will take. 

Sent: the number of orders which have been shipped - from time to time as advised on ordering pages, there may be a delay in shipping while components/kits are being re-stocked, this causes a lag between "Orders" and "Sent".

Fdbck (feedback): the number of the "Sent" orders, whose recipients have emailed me to tell me what date their shipment arrived.

Min: the minimum number of days in shipping

Avg: the average number of days in shipping

Max: the maximum number of days in shipping

Note: Min/Avg/Max days are number of calendar days, not working days! Note also that this is the number of days actually spent in shipping, from despatch to receiving your package. You will receive one email shortly after placing your order, confirming it. You will receive another email when your order has been shipped. Please provide feedback on when you recevied your package, for calculating the statistics used for the table below.

Enclosure shipments from China by SEA

To save costs, enclosure kits such as the U3 case are manufactured in China and shipped directly from China, separately to the rest of the kits. The table below shows shipping statistics for cases sent using the cheaper surface shipment option.

Note: many of the shipments are actually sent by air. But this is a lower priority option so at their discretion the origin post office can decide to send by air (if spare capacity is available) or by sea.
