    Makes sense - I went ahead and ordered it through Amazon and it will be here tomorrow!!!

    That’s fast:smile_: just got RP2 from Razer store shipped within 3 days, from package it is apparently from HK.

    update: package cleared customs and was delivered 2 days past scheduled delivery date. large shipments (mine was in a shipment of 90 other orders) are held at customs for longer due to the clearance process.

    Makes sense - Wednesday evening Amazon ended up getting more 2080 models in stock so I went ahead and ordered from them. Mine is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.

    A bit late to the conversation, but yes - a clearance delay in customs is absolutely normal. Usually they don't miss their shipment window, though.

    I recently ordered and received the Razer Blade Stealth in the pink quartz and it stayed in customs for nearly a week before it was delivered. I was so irritated, I wanted it "Right Now!" LOL
    However, they did still make their delivery window for the express shipping, but it was still kind of irritating.

    Yeah similar boat here as apparently many. I ordered my rb15 3 days ago late at night and was pleasantly surprised to see it ship on Sunday due to deliver Wednesday but now it's stuck in customs. Weird thing is there are multiple descriptions of the delay. Currently just says "import" as the reason but five minutes prior to that in the history it says:
    • Clearance delay - Import
      A statement is required from the consignee unless the consignee authorizes the shipper to complete and include the toxic substance statement on their behalf.
    ?Lol

    Also it's funny because if you start typing FedEx clearance delay in Google it populates razer before you finish typing delay.

    my package is stuck at AK with the status
    . Clearance Delay - Import
    A statement is required from the consignee unless the consignee authorizes the shipper to complete and include the toxic substance statement on their behalf.

    my package was sent from HK and I live in IL.

    ??? Is there anything we a buyer has to deal with custom? ≈ How many days it will stuck for custom clearance? Any idea please. Thank you

    I did like the next day haha. I use FedEx for work a lot and know the people in my main shipping facility in the area. I had them text me when it came in the routing center and I went and picked it up. Got a perfect one it seems pretty stoked about it.

    I would also say that this is normal. I have had some of my razor laptops shipped form HZ and others local. When you order a laptop right after it is announce or it is backlogged, it makes sense for Razer to ship directly from HZ vs shipping to the US and then to you. Just to be fair, I have had the same thing happen with Apple laptops also.

    I gave them my info and a FedEx dude gave me a phone call explaining that it's just a waiting game when it comes to customs. But the day after I got the call, the laptop somehow magically got transported to my location, and it delivered the same day.

    “My” white blade 15 was supposed to be delivered yesterday. It’s been in customs for over 2 days. I’m really losing my patience... ;/

    i work for a company that does import clearance, to be fair i dont know what country it is but most process's is the same, most of the time customs is blamed for delay of the actual courier

    clearance on average takes about 5-10 mins per shipment. sometimes they go wrong but it all depends where it comes from and what the commodity actually is. most of the errors customs want to see copy documents and will customs clear within 4 hours

    My Razer phone 2 and wireless charger coming from HK to SC are stuck in AK as well only the reason for mine seems a bit different.

    Reason for delay:
    Itemized breakdown of product composition required.
    Recommended action:
    Shipper to provide


    Sounds like they want to know all the components of both devices.
