How bad is Banggood shipping in reality

I’ve never dealt with them, but about to consider a HL01, but am concerned with shipping issues

Depends but I wouldn’t order without going through PayPal. That way if you don’t receive your package you have a way to get refunded

Just remember the ancient Chinese proverb: “Patience is power; with time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown.”

My translation: With time (4-6 weeks) and great patience, your money sent, will return to you in the form of a beautiful torch.

Ok, I know I sounded like a dork, LOL.

Important steps to take BEFORE ORDERING from CHINA…. Wink
.
1… Create an account with company store and setup shipping address and save in your browser.
2… Setup PAYPAL account and use a credit card for purchases and set up shipping address.
3… Before purchasing, VERIFY it is IN STOCK or you may never receive item and you will need to request a refund.
4… Make sure/positive this is the correct item you want.
5… After purchase verify order in company store and paypal.
6… Shipping time from China to US is 4 to 6 weeks and will not show on Tracking # until after passing US Customs.
.
I think that is all. Silly
.
I have not had a problem purchasing from Banggood except items not showing out of stock until after placing the order.
When this happens i request a refund, ( 3 days waiting ), and order from a different store.

My Banggood orders usually ship between 2 to 8 weeks after I place the order and the typical shipping time from Banggood to my home is 3 to 4 weeks.

CNCman pretty much summed it up fairly well. Only problems I have ever had is ordering a product that has a shipping date a few weeks out from when I ordered it. If it says “ships within 24 hours” I have almost always received it withing 3 to 6 weeks. 12 days being the fastest I ever got something. Almost 9 weeks being the slowest. That 9 week mark was hit only once in many orders.

I tend to order and forget about it. I set a reminder on my calendar for 60 days. Helps me in remembering to start asking questions. Most of the time it isn’t necessary.

Same time frame apply’s to Gearbest as well. At least for me. Now if you can find a great deal in either companies USA warehouse, then you have it made.

Never had any issues with Banggood in the past, but hadn’t ordered anything from them since an S41 around mid 2018 iirc.

Just bit on the Astrolux C8 sale, so we’ll see how it goes. Ordered on the 8th and got a shipping confirm on the 9th.

I’ve never had a problem with banggood. Their shipping times have been no different than the other Chinese vendors for me. I usually receive my packages in 2 to 4 weeks here in Michigan. I use paypal whenever it’s allowed.

It really depends. I ordered some stuff at 11.11 from Ali and not everything has arrived yet. I been ordering from Ali hundreds of times and everything has always arrived. Once there was wrong item sent to me, but that got sorted out. Shipping time to Finland is usually two weeks if they send it immediately, but 1-3 months aint nothing new when there is big seasons like 11.11, xmas, new years and stuff like that. No complains when prices are low and quality is good.
Banggood is new place for me, using that only maybe under 6 months and my fourth order was MF01 mini which got shipped at next day 5.1, at sunday and last update was 8.1 when it was despatched from third sorting center. BLF A6 got shipped at sixth day from ordering so sometimes its quick and sometimes its not.

In my experience the shipping to South Africa is remarkably good, basically door-to-door courier in about 2/3 weeks. The only issues I have had is waiting for the item purchased to come into stock to be shipped out. Banggood and other similar Chinese sites, such as Fasttech, can have a very liberal interpretation of the term ‘in stock’ !

My latest order from BG is in limbo with tracking not updating since December 2019. It’s been almost a month now so I’m considering asking for a refund. AE and GB have been hit and miss as well with some orders having never been shipped or delivered. You get what you pay for. I just make sure I don’t need anything urgently and always have a backup plan when ordering from China.

Arrived to Finland today 15.1. I doubt it will arrive to me this week because customs and shipping, but still that was fast.

where do u live? sometimes tracking doesnt work from china until u have it in your hands. I never have any issues, i usually order with priority direct mail then it arrives within 10 working days or so after its shipped out.

I made many dozens of orders on BG and never had any problems with the items not arriving. However, several times the items shown in stock might not actually be in stock and they will send you an email several weeks later asking you to cancel or wait. Sometimes I cancelled and sometimes I waited and it eventually delivered several months after. Normally shipping to the US is about a month and sometimes more but I don’t know for sure because I never look at tracking numbers or (missing tracking numbers) anymore so I don’t time then.
