First, for people living in the US, airmail has kind of been restored, but there are a few catches. First, it’s only parcels below 2kg, good for a few average sized HGs or one average sized MG. The main catch is that there’s no insurance or tracking. On top of all of that, delays will still be expected. Honestly, I’m not going to use airmail for the US unless you guys request it. But, if anything it’s a good sign that things are heading in the right direction and that airmail and EMS might be back sooner rather than later. Please check the official JP website for more details.
My second update is hugely important to this shop. As I said before, next week is my last week at my day job, and I will be doing this full time afterwards. However, even with the majority of my time devoted to this business, it’s still a massive workload for me to handle on my own. So, I’ve hired a few of my colleagues to come help me package and ship your orders, at least on a temporary basis. If sales stay strong I may finally be able to hire a full time staff. They won’t start until early November, so I’ll still be doing things on my own for the first couple of weeks. Rest assured though, things will finally start speeding up. Once again, I sincerely apologize for the hold up.
