Newegg shipping stuff from us to canada through purolator

I don't usually by electronics online but you know Canada is one of the worst place to buy electronics.. Such a narrow range of brands.
I wanted a Huawei tablet but they don't sell it in Canada. Luckily, I found this site called Newegg.ca selling what I want but shipping the product from the states.... It's been a day since the product was shipped but the tracking provided by purolator has no information about where the product is or where it is picked up..


This is what it says.

Monday, February 13, 2017 5:29 PM In Transit
Monday, February 13, 2017 5:27 PM Picked Up at Shipper's Origin Location


I know I'm being a freak now cuz it's been only one day but I had a shipping problem previously with Amazon. My purchase was lost in the US so Amazon had to give me a full refund.

It's my first experience having purolator shipping something for me. Is it usual for purolator not giving much information about tracking???

Purolator is reliable, don't worry.

Never had any issues with them. I hate UPS, always have issues with them.

And in the rare chance something does happen, NewEgg support is great.

I've purchased lots of computer parts from them over the years.

Purolator is also owned by Canada Post, so it's not some sketchy courier.

There is no update on the status between Feb 13 and now is because the item is in transit. Once it reaches to it's next destination, the item will be scanned and you will see an entry. It will take a longer time for update if it is coming from USA.

Purolator's shipping is a bit of mystery, inconsistent delivery methods:

Purchase from Newegg, shipped by Purolator, item ended up at PostNet (retail store) for pickup - Good, like this one, PostNet is close to where I live
Purchase from Newegg, shipped by Purolator, item ended up at Canada Post for pickup - Good, like this one
Purchase from B&H Photo, shipped by Purolator, item ended up at Purolator depot for pickup - Don't like this one, Purolator did not attempt to deliver and Purolator depot is far away
