All 3 vendors: Shipping, Round II
I placed another order from each vendor on Friday 10/29. It was dark outside so I'm sure it would have been after business hours.
This time, the first label was printed by Loud; again around 3 am Monday 11/1. This time it was accepted about 12 hours later the same day and it's already hit Jacksonville on 11/3. Based on experience, it looks like I might be able to get Friday, but informed delivery days ETA is Saturday.
Next was Merlin. The label was created on Monday 11/1 around 5 pm. The package was accepted around 3 pm on Tuesday 11/2. As of last night (11/2) around 7 pm, it was still in CA and not showing in transit yet.
CC uses a different shipping system with different wording, but on 11/2 the postal service was "expecting" the package. It was accepted at one facility and moved to a distribution center by 5 pm.
I'm glad to see Loud moving first. Great job by everyone on getting the product out quickly.
I have my fingers crossed that I get what I ordered.
