I have chosen the “USA Priority Mail US$2.34 7-15 business days Tracked”, but still have to wait 30 days or more.

And as far as the “Tracked” goes, I seldom get tracking updates, it’s like the package disappears for several weeks (4-6), and then suddenly appears at my door. Never providing any updates along the way.

I hear this a lot:
One chooses expensive shipping and it’s still as slow as the cheapest option.
So if it’s always ‘just order and wait longer than you would like’ anyway, might as well go for free or cheap shipping.

After combing threads, I don’t think there’s an easy way to this, so snail mail it is. But will stick to USA Priority Mail. Maybe one day DHL will offer a direct from China.

DHL is definitely fastest, if available.
I usually pick EPacket when available, then EMS, then Priority mail. I’ve gotten stuff before in 2 weeks via EMS and EPacket.

Order from Banggood, pay extra for shipping, wait.
Order from Banggood , wait.
You get really high lumens though. Smile

I can't answer your question for you.  But a few years ago I placed an order from China...I believe it was from Banggood, using DHL, and I received my package in New York 5 days later.

Next order I’ll check with customer service first on this DHL option i keep hearing of as it’s not in the native options.
