Gearbest: anyone beat this for delay?

I was having a look through my gearbest orders and had a good laugh when i saw this one has been delayed for close to 4 months.
Anyone beat this?

Can we start a leader-board and see who wins the first place of being treated the worst by gerarbest this year? Smile

You have me beat by double. But maybe only because I quit waiting at the 2 month mark and demanded a refund. You are more patient (if that’s the right word for it Wink ) than I.

Depends on what you mean…I have a Nitecore tube that’s been stuck in customs since 2017. At least they shipped it lol.

I stopped using Gearbest because to many orders weren’t delivered.
But this year my longest wait on an order is 60 days (fasttech).

I keep track on how long my orders take to arrive.

Results this year:
Fasttech: 25 orders, avg 37 days. max 60, min 19 days.
Banggood: 15 orders, avg 29 days, max 33, min 12 days
Kaidomain: 14 orders, avg 16 days, max 33, min 7 days

I also ordered a lot from eBay and AliExpress, but it’s not really fear to compare those numbers because they are all different sellers. And other stores like Convoy where I only placed 3 orders is also not representable.

Maybe more people want to track the shipping time so we can have a database by the end of next year. We could also hand out awards like fastest shipping company, slowest shipping company. Etc.
These are Just some thoughts.

I have to say this sounds good, i know its fun to bash long times but it would also be great to reward the fast ones.
i will say i have found gearbest to be the worst for me this year but i have not kept a database, i should have. I just know they are the worst this year for me as i always get a sinking feeling if i feel like using them.
I have had issues in the past with armytek but maybe that was a one off.
Can anyone say which places shine and send stuff out really fast? i think a leader-board would be a good idea with a raspberry award for the worst and a 10000 lumen award to the best.

I ordered something from Kaidomain about 8 or 9 years ago and I still haven’t gotten it. Lost in transit, supposedly, and I couldn’t get the money back. Never ordered from them again after that.
