This is the first time I’ve closed down the store for more than a couple of hours for an update!! And I’m glad to announce that the store is back up and running 💕
New preorders for manjuu are now open, this will be the last batch for this year. Holidays are nearing, which means supplier-sans will take a little longer to respond and packages may be a little slower once they’re out in transit to you.
I’ve changed couriers finally! My experience with the previous one wasn’t really good, but it’s a learning experience. Perhaps they were just really understaffed, but I don’t want anyone’s packages handled poorly. So I’m happy I was able to find alternatives in the past couple of weeks.
The post office near us misses me, as I haven’t gone there since February!! But my parents aren’t allowing me to use public transportation to go around (only my dad can drive and he has work) so I can’t go to the post office personally. But artist friends here are helping each other out, so we’ll be helping each other out with each other’s packages haha! I’m happy that despite these problem-ridden times, we’re able to make do with whatever networks we have. Post office rates have been updated as mentioned earlier. I’ve just fixed how everything looks so it won’t be too hard on the eyes.
The new schedule for shipments for the rest of the year are as follows:
DHL Express (international)
Transit time: 2-5 working days
Ship out: as often as needed, when packaging materials are available
Private Postal Service (international)
Transit time: 7-12 working days (Asia), 15-20 working days (others)
Ship out: every other week or every 5 orders
Regular Mail aka Post office (international)
Transit time: 18-25 working days
Ship out: Oct 30, Nov 30, Dec 11
Local shipments (Philippines)
Transit time: 3-5 working days
Ship out: every other day
The store’s default currency has been changed to (PHP) Philippine Peso! You can still view the prices in USD by using the store’s currency switcher, but I will still receive your payments in my country’s currency. I’ve also added GBP, EUR, and JPY for those based in other countries as well. Conversion has been bad recently due to our struggling economy, hence this change. I hope you guys don’t mind 🙏🏼💦
Hoping the rest of the year goes well for everyone! We’re still kinda under quarantine. Though, not really much has changed for me personally since I can’t really go out due to my asthma and weak lungs in general ;O;)/
Please continue practicing good hygiene and stay safe out there!
