    after a waiting period of 16 days the lot has never arrived and the seller cannot give us information. I would say that the seller is bad and unreliable.

    Dear Ilaria,

    Please be a bit more patient. As I told you, PostNL have started an investigation to your package. I understand that it's frustrating that it take so long. But all we can do now is wait until PostNL gives us more information. Thanks for your understanding. If your package is clearly lost after the investigation you will get a full refund. But for now we still hope that they will find your package.

    Kind regards,

    Huub
