    Bonjour Monsieur,
    Je suis étonné que vous marquez dans votre évaluation que le paquet a mis longtemps pour arriver chez vous. J'ai vérifié toute de suite mais tout d'abord je voudrais remarquer que j'ai envoyé environs 1000 paquets jusqu'à ce jour et j'ai reçu 254 évaluations. 250 positives et 4 neutres, dont 2 concernant l'envoie.Une remarque pour un paquet plié dans la poste hollandaise et le vôtre. Mais ça peut arriver. J'ai donc vérifié et vous avez commandé votre paquet le 9/8. Catawiki octroie au vendeurs 3 jours ouvrables pour préparer et envoyer l'envoie. Donc jusqu'au lundi 14/8. Le vendredi 11/8 le paquet était déjà parti. A 00.28h la nuit du 12/8 le paquet a quitté la Belgique pour arriver le lundi 14/8 au dépôt (le premier des 3 stations intermédiaires) en France. De la le paquet a mis 3 jours (passant par un bureau d'échange et 1 dépôt) avant d'être livré chez vous. En total 7 jours ouvrables entre la commande et la réception. Tenant compte que les vendeurs ont 3 jours pour la préparation et qu'il fallait 3 stations intermédiaires pour la poste Française , je trouve ça plus que raisonnable. Le jour de l'envoie vous avez également reçu par Catawiki le code bar de suivi à la Poste. Vous pouvez à tout moment aller vérifier si ce que j'écris est la vérité. J'espère vivement que après cette explication vous comprendrez que
    je suis d'avis que je n'ai commis aucune erreur , bien au contraire , que j'essaie d'agir au plus vite et d'une façon qualitative. Quoi qu'il en soit , je trouve personnellement que cela ne mérite pas une note neutre de votre part. Mais il est clair qu'on vie dans une démocratie et tout le monde est libre de pensée.
    Salutations sportives, Filip. (natfil)
