@mysticheero No worries! You sound like a friend trying to help. 1) yes, I always choose the most affordable option that includes tracking, 2) yes, for my past orders I waited till status said shipped but still didn’t receive tracking. Even after UW notifies via email that items are shipped. All couriers I know only issue a number after the item(s) enters the facility, 3) all of my orders so far have taken at least a month to arrive and a tracking number was never given before then.
I’m not worried at all though (even if I should be). Costs are what they’re supposed to be and I chose the shipping option for the lowest price not because it has tracking. I know my orders’ll arrive and that’s that.
