 Yes to tracking number. No to holding package.  That's how UPS does it, but FedEx delivers it to you and sends you the customs bill a few weeks later.
Excellent.  I think another Luxire order is in my immediate future.
 Every time I've ordered directly from  Carmina and charged shipping, it has always been charged at the time of purchase.  I suspect the 40 euro charge mentioned above are customs fees.
