The PIN is sent by standard mail several days after your Payment reaches $10 for the first time. It takes almost 2-4 weeks for PIN to arrive, It may take longer for PIN to arrive if you live in small countries or small / rural places.

For PIN to arrive in India, It takes about 2-4 weeks for people who live in Metro cities (bigger cites) like Mumbai, Delhi etc. It may take long for people living in small cities or rural towns.

I live in Mumbai and I received my PIN within 25 Days, My PIN was sent to me on 25th November 2011 and It arrived on 20th December 2011.

If your PIN doesn't reaches you within a month, You can request for 2 replacement PINS. That means If you waited a month and PIN didn't arrive, You can request another PIN and if the replacement PIN also not arrive within 4 weeks you can again request the last replacement PIN. That is Total 3 PIN Request can be made with 1 month gap.
