Sometimes they keep things at the post office. The tracking information should tell you where it is located. Was this FedEx, UPS, or USPS?

It has been 4 days, give it 14 before you panic, it still has to get to the US then go through Customs and be approved and it could take longer than 14 days to get to you.

Oh gosh, I'm with you now. The "Acceptance" was just acceptance to the ship. Yeah, it's going to be arriving sometime next week. Even after it gets to the States it'll probably bounce around to one or two different cities before coming to Cincinnati.

I remember I bought something from an Amazon dealer in England once and it took 2 weeks before it arrived.
I live on the east coast of the USA.

The US has tightened by on individual items shipped from China due to a majority of them labelled as "gift". So depending on how (or if) customs deal with what used to be 7-10 days is now 3-6 weeks.

fwiw it worth, go to eBay and type in a few items that come from China and they will state weeks and not days.
