Simon and Convoy, always amaze me...

I ordered an S12 on 9/27 direct from Simon, it arrived yesterday at my home in the US! Another order placed with a respected Chinese seller on the same day is not even tracking to the US yet.

Not sure how you got it here so quickly, but hats of to you!

Thanks Matt

So it doesn’t actually have anything to doing with Simon. The seller has no control over delays by a courier company. Sometimes I get parcels from Simon at 3 weeks and others at 5 weeks to New Zealand and it’s always due to the courier’s delays. It has nothing to doing with Simon himself

I think indirectly it does. He or his company is responsible for releasing the package. The effort was made to ship before their national holiday, which in turn allowed it to get out of China before things got stopped for a week. I did not expect it to even ship until at least the 8th.

I frequently see some Chinese sellers to be very fast, others (mostly the same types) to be very slow. Not entirely knowledgeable about the details, but some shippers (with same shipping service) are faster in my opinion.

Whenever I bought from Simon it was actually faster than with other shops.

Simon is excellent but slower than others at shipping out in my experience and that’s with over 100 lights. I get a shipped notification from AliExpress but no tracking shows for a week, first scan being up to 7 days later saying the shipping label was created.

Plenty of drop shippers with no stock or overheads.
