    EMS from China seems to average about a week. Six days is my quickest and 10 the longest. Thats not counting the current CNY delay.

    shipping times are average of 7 to 10 days fromChina and 8 to 16 days from USA,

    some faster, some slower,
    but they usually get thru OK.

    Dammit! I made and paid for my order from Health Cabin yesterday morning and it's still "processing". Is this normal? How long does it take for them to actually pick the order and ship it? Been 2 full chinese days and still nothing.


    I am getting edgy – can't wait :)

    Just got my second order from HG, here's the tracking info if any new guys want an idea of what the packages get up to on their travels:

    Mar 3, 2010 10:12am NYAH LPO Item delivered.
    Mar 3, 2010 7:49am NYAH LPO Attempted Delivery
    Mar 2, 2010 9:24pm BENDIGO MAIL CENTRE OPERATIONS Received at delivery hub.
    Mar 2, 2010 1:09pm AUSTRALIA - MELBOURNE Transferred for delivery processing.
    Mar 2, 2010 10:41am AUSTRALIA - MELBOURNE Received and awaiting clearance for delivery.
    Feb 26, 2010 7:57pm CHINA - SHANGHAI EMS Processed - enroute to final destination.
    Feb 25, 2010 3:19pm CHINA Item lodged

    I placed the order on the 21st, but naturally they had to work through the big order backlog accumulated over the holidays before they posted mine.

    Yes8s, I've noticed some websites have the 'Processing' status on even until you receive the damn thing. So who knows, it could be on it's way or they could also be waiting for more stock.

    Try emailing them?

    Hi Kimmy,

    Actually, I just re-read your post and its shows that it is at customs in China - not seen that before. Normally it shows it going through Aust customs but not China..

    Example of my last (delivered) parcel from HG.

    Do you (or anyone else) have actual experiance from Health Cabin deliveries here in Oz.

    I emailed them yesterday with a general question about time from order to shipping and they said it usually takes up to two days. I emailed them today about the progress of my specific order and am just waiting for a reply.

    Maybe they might just cancel it altogether because of how much i've been buggin them:p

    No I've never gone through Health Cabin before. But my last package from HG didn't even get opened by customs. This was at the start of the week.

    Looking good Kimmy.
    Out of the 5 parcels of e-cig stuff I've had delivered not one has been opened by customs. I'm hoping for same with the parcel from DealExtreme containing the little lasers I ordered for mods.. :)

    From Healthcabin:

    Mar 3, 2010 10:35pm AUSTRALIA - BRISBANE Scheduled for delivery.
    Mar 3, 2010 1:56pm AUSTRALIA - SYDNEY Received and awaiting clearance for delivery.
    Mar 1, 2010 10:49pm CHINA - SHENZHEN EMS Processed - enroute to final destination.
    Mar 1, 2010 4:53pm CHINA Item lodged

    Not bad at all. Been vaping since last June but neglected to stock up over the Chinese New Year, and had to go 3 weeks on Nicabate lozenges (I won't smoke again ever). Looking forward to trying the new juices I ordered; Lucky Strike, Chesterfield, Pall Mall, Davidoff, honey, ginger, cinnamon, along with usual batch of RY4.

    And about processing times, this is the first time I've ordered from Healthcabin. I placed the order last Thursday night and it was shipped Friday. Pretty good considering they must be backed up from the holiday.

    In the past I've ordered from East Mall and HG. If I place an order in the morning I usually get an e-mail an hour or two later notifying me that it has been posted. They are very quick about it. With Healthcabin, I didn't get such an e-mail but I will apparently be getting it just as quickly.

    If I place an order, I always get it in a week or less, unless I order over the weekend in which case it arrives a week from the following Monday.
