Announcement: Reduced working hours and slower response time

Hello everyone,

I wanted to give a heads up that starting from April 6, 2023, I’ll be reducing my daily hours for shopping services due to some personal health reasons. I apologize for the abrupt notice and any inconvenience this may cause.

As a result, response times may be slower than usual. The estimated response time depends on the volume of orders and emails I receive, as well as my workload from my day job. While it’s difficult for me to provide an exact estimate, I don’t expect anyone to wait longer than 5 days for a response. I will prioritize orders in progress, which means that requests for new orders or items to be added to existing orders may experience longer waiting times.

I understand that this may be difficult for those with closing deadlines or seeking one-of-a-kind items, especially from the second-hand market. If you require a faster or more responsive service, I am happy to recommend my shopping partners. Please don’t hesitate to ask.

For those who still wish to use my shopping service despite the slower response time, I appreciate your patience and support. To reduce waiting times, please utilize the online calculator for budgeting, and try to finalize your order at once, rather than sending separate add-ons over time. While I understand that this may not always be possible, it can help reduce response times.

To ensure timely processing of your email, please refrain from following up on unreplied emails unless it has been more than 5 days since my last response. Following up before that may push your email further back in the queue. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
