There are currently delays from all major carriers.  USPS and UPS are overwhelmed, even domestically, with volume and new social distancing / sanitation measures. In addition to that USPS is currently being dismantled internally by Trump's appointed postmaster in order to supress mail in voting in the US. Please be aware that normal delivery standards do not currently apply!

Big one to note: INTERNATIONAL orders (outside the US and Canada) are currently made at the buyer's own risk as far as timing goes, due to individual countries' restrictions on imports at this time as well as severely minimized air travel around the world. We ship them out but cannot guarantee any timing - delays of over a month have been reported to certain locations. The best way to avoid this is to inform yourself about your country's current policies on parcels coming from abroad before ordering. Here's the USPS' current page on International service disruptions:
