Not sure how long they've been doing this. I've heard stories that it takes longer than normal shipping. Has anyone from overseas used this, and if so, any commentary ?

I have had consignments delivered thusly - not from MM. It arrived with no issues. It takes slightly longer than "normal" mail but is perfectly acceptable in terms of speed. 'Normal mail' can take 3 - 10 days to arrive, this service 5 - 14 (ish).

Having said that - anyone buying (internationally) from MM needs to make sure they have recourse to Paypal or their credit card if the items do not arrive, arrive damaged or are not as described. MM would likely say that without tracking (and there is none at destination - it's delivered by the local Postal Service as regular mail) they can avoid responsibility. ISTR American merchants tend to do that even inside the US for non-tracked items.

European buyers should be particularly aware that the 'Distance Selling Regulations' which protect consumers so well inside the EU do not apply to foreign purchases.

I can live with that. I just had an order from the UK take 15 days (again!), so that's pretty speedy

MM is back on my radar after I discovered this. Anything small I can't get from Book Depository can usually be found at Miniature Market for around the same price with the new shipping option. Then there are all the tokens and clearance items I find so hard to resist. Small, lightweight, too easy to add to the cart!
