i got a shipment notification, on feb. 1., and a very kind note to answer my question about when i would get the LP, CD, etc. :
Hi, I'm sorry that you've not received the order. According to the information in our database, your order was shipped on February 1, 2012 via UPS Mail Innovations. This delivery method allows us to significantly reduce your shipping costs, while still providing the reliable international service UPS is known for. UPS will deliver your item to the postal service of your country, who will then in turn deliver the parcel to you. UPS Mail Innovations does not provide tracking numbers for individual items and hence, the tracking is not available for this shipping method. The delivery may take 8 to 18 business days (3 weeks approximately) from the date of shipping. So you should receive your order between (February 1, 2012 - February 12, 2012) and (February 1, 2012 - February 26, 2012). If your order doesn't arrive within the estimated time frame, you may want to check with your local post office, your parcel may be held there if customs fees or taxes are due.
Sincerely, Sony Music Digital
