Umang, great idea!!

About the shipping question, although you have mentioned that it has taken as less as 5 days for some orders to reach, it still is not a very concrete answer. I realise that a concrete ans to this is not possible, but if we can add some facts here which can help to derive some conclusion?

1. Like a poll in this thread there members can vote the average time it took for their package to arrive; Or

2. A sub-thread where every member can come and contribute the following details -

value of order

shipment chosen

order received in how many days

customs charged

city where delivered.

 

This will def provide enough support/answer to people who are going to try PA for the first time.

If you choose free shipping (economy bubble, preferably) - almost negligible chance of a duty.

They probably havent charged your card yet and thats the reason why you see the payment pending thing. Cancel the current order and check with your bank if they've charged you or something, if they havent, place a new one.
