Banggood shipping rant.

It’s cool that I got “expedited” shipping when ordering my R90C! That’s cool. No problem.

Problem is, I ordered it on the 23rd and it is still “processing” what’s the point of 6 day shipping if it doesn’t leave for another week?!

Rant over.

Any idea why this happens?

Some promo days are very busy (11/11, Thanksgiving, Christmas, ..) and packing may take longer, I presume.
Also, some products may not be in stock.

The pre-season Christmas shopping season is very busy, always more customers than the year before. This is not an excuse, of course, they should have indicated how long this would take.

Whats the point of 6 day shipping, when it still takes 3 weeks to arrive. Oh wait, I know. So they can squeeze an extra couple bucks out of you.

Well at least it is free expedited shipping. Hard to complain really. I already know that regardless of whatever they decide to call their shipping method, it’s still going to be 2 to 4 weeks. They can make it sound as fancy as they like but it still gets on the same slow row boat from china. I never pay extra for any shipping method from BG or GB. Unless it’s in a US warehouse it’s going to be 2 to 4 weeks. I always assume it’s going to be a month, so I get a nice surprise when it shows up in 2 weeks. Smile

Except DHL, which only takes about 3 days. Damn quick! But, anything going through your regular postal mail is going to be weeks, regardless of what they call it.

I’ve had around 30 orders from banggood. I’m farmiliar with the 2-4 weeks. I have never had it take this long to actually start shipping though. Weird. Oh well.

Thanks for the info guys.
