Days to months. I've received packages in < 7 days and, recently, had a recent package take 2 months. All depends on the seller, their stock on hand, shipping method and Customs. The 2 month purchase was off Amazon and due to a stock issue...at least that was their excuse. They =did= alert me to the problem and said I could cancel, get a full refund and re-order. Wasn't critical, so I just let it ride.

Always helps to read the feedback on evil-Bay; can help with making a decision on buying. It's a crap-shoot, sometimes. Did you think of having a hose shop make what you need?

I purchased some extra router device for the WIFI in the house from known electronic dealer. The seller stated that the component will be shipped from CHINA. I almost gave up on the parts, I ordered after four months of e-mails back and forth. They did show up but it took a very long time.

I've been buying stuff on Aliexpress for about 10 years. It will usually take about two or more weeks to arrive here in California.

I avoid buying directly from China because returns are nearly impossible. Sometimes a middleman is a good thing.

Well... I had a mission-critical item (special cable, only about $300 worth) that needed to be purchased for an event, the people who needed this item let me know on Dec 18 for use on Dec 31. Normally 13 days would be plenty for a domestic supplier (one of which is only 250 miles from us) and we tried to order it, but EVERY supplier in the USA could not deliver until after Jan 2 because they were shutting down for the Christmas/New Year holiday.


The product was custom made in China and we received it on Dec 30 using their regular shipping. The only potential hangup was in Customs and we saw via tracking that it cleared in about 6 hours.


You want cheap? You'll wait on that slow boat from China. You pay more, it will come faster.


Like the sign in the print shop (remember those?) said: Good, Fast, Cheap, pick any two...
