BangGood ups their game

I believe in alerting the group when a Company does Good as well as when they do Bad.

In this case they nailed a home run!

I ordered these fine Ultrafire SK68 clones in various colors on Dec 2nd and got them today Dec 11th. Amazing ship time and will make great gifts. I expected they would arrive around Jan 7th 2015 or so, but they got here in record time.

How some packages can skirt through in 1 week and others take over a month boggles the mind.
My package probably got on the very end of a large shipment or it just cleared customs real quick?
Anyway, they work good and you can’t beat the $2.99 price.

Thanks BangGood !!

I ordered a half a dozen of the same lights Dec 01.
Not expecting miracles but I have not been horribly disappointed by BangGood’s shipping time.
I’ll update.
Soon???

My first ordered flashlight was delivered in.. 2 months.
Now I’m waiting for EagleEye group buy, I hope it doesn’t take that long.

I'm switching my BLF account into LumenZilla. Thanks!

My Eagle Eye came fast enough, 19 days for NW, 23 days CW. Imo it’s fast because around 10 days held in our custom that become slower during that time. May be due to many import products coming from 11.11 sale.

Customs, yep.

My fastest international was Hong Kong next day to West Coast and released by customs, on flight, and at next stop in hours.

Just checked mine, it’s already in my city’s post office today.
Waiting it to be delivered.

I ordered 11 of those Sipik SK68 clones on November 8th and didn’t receive them until December 6th. That was my first order from Banggood.

Ohhhhh now, people have no problem laying blame on only one order Smile

For the record I have had 14 orders in the last year, some have sucked, most were decent.
This one was very good, wanted to share it, that is not “Building praise” it is sharing an experience.
You’re welcome.

YMMV

Well, I completely agree with your post here in just stating the opposite, but really its more like it doesn’t work in either way… few realize this. In shipping from China, it seems to rarely be that the company selling the item has much to do with the shipping time. Instead, it is a whole variety of possible situations from the post office to post office transfer in China, post office to customs, customs to shipping port or airport, ship or airport to customer’s country customs, customer country’s customs to customer country postal service and then postal service to customer where the vast majority of shipping time differences occur. The company has very very little ever to do with any of this if they are even slightly competent in sending your order within a day or two.

Think of this: we all know if the order doesn’t get there within a certain time to the post office, it doesn’t actually move that day, it sits there until the end of the next day. How many post office connections are there between the Chinese city and the port? Then customs can take days, in each country, or weeks. If the package gets through customs to the plane or ship when it is almost full, it may go out the very same day, but if it is a smaller port/destination/big volume ship and the package gets there when an empty transport ship/plane does, it has to wait until the ship/plane is full…this can be days/weeks. Add a few weekends into the equation and it can reasonably be seen that shipping could be +/- a few WEEKS with absolutely no effect from the originating company, and if you are unlucky, and hit everything at the wrong time, maybe + one month or more maybe? Unfortunately both sides: “BAD SERVICE! IT GOT HERE IN 40 DAYS” and “WOW I GOT MY PACKAGE IN 5 DAYS, GREAT JOB!” have little to do with the originating company in reality. Yeah I feel this way too sometimes…but the truth be told you cannot really tell if ANY of it had to do with the company selling the item…they could sit on your order for a week and you get it in 14 days and you think thats great, or send it out immediately and you get it 30 days later. You can’t even tell by when they update your order as shipped, as some don’t do this immediately even though it may have been shipped, as some don’t ever do it and you just get your order anyways, and some have lied about it being shipped when it hasn’t been shipped, this being made obvious by the customer service agents replies and order changing etc… its really hard to tell anything without a large sample of packages anyways.

But yeah, if it takes over 40 days then something isnt smelling right…
