How long does it take for a package to get from Canada to the US?

It usually takes about 4-6 days (as long as its not sent surface mail). However, sometimes items get delayed at the border going either way and that can add up to 2 weeks! I had a customer convo me yesterday asking about a package I sent out April 4th. Canada Post had Good Friday and Easter Monday off so that could also contribute to a recent delay.

Generally, packages take longer to reach USA from Canada. The United States Customs/Homeland Security may inspect your package and the seller has no control over this.
That being said, as a seller I try to ship same day, have the customs forms in order and my stuff seems to ship quite quickly (my home to California takes about 6 working days).
SudsNSuch: Did your seller give you an estimate when the package would arrive?
