For PCHome24 the 24h delivery is suspended. (It’s like Amazon, stock is centralized). I’ve got orders that have been waiting for over 7 days.
got this message:
Shopee is decentralized, so that will depends on each shop, probably a better bet in these times, it is also more straightforward to cancel orders if you need to, you can just chat directly with the seller. The wife got orders going through with no issues.
Its normal, dont panic. Everywhere is experiencing delays and the government, along with all the logistic ompanies (including export) have already explained very clearly why (CCP Virus) and apologized far more than they need ed to. Anyone relying on delivery se rvices should be responsible and order ahead of time to plan for their schedules. This isnt a big deal, but one that requires a bit more patience from the customer…
This is a problem borne of a culture being spoiled with next day delivery for the long time at a cheap price, be forgiving not entitled. Really, they arent trying hard to just make you wait. The only people and businesses at any kind of true risk and problems are thosethat have ultra perishable items. To them, my condolences…sucks.
Tiny sample: ordered from the online Apple Store today, and delivery is expected on Friday, two days from now. But that’s a domestic shipment. (The same item was unavailable at several Apple-ish stores I checked in Danshui, and would take at least a week, maybe more, to arrive.)
Sigh, dumb COVID. Most of the time this would have been a nice excuse to head into town and splash out for a nicer restaurant.
Almost certainly an issue with the country of departure. usa is famous for problems as with many others such as india. In the off chance they actually sent it to the right country, and it arrived here, its likely lost and you should open an investigation before its too late. It must be opened on the senders side, then you can make waves on this side. Depends also on which method they used to ship.
USA for example has gone to total shit over the years, and they have the gulls to just say fuck you, too bad. much like other 3rd world countries . I would insure important packages now if dealing with the states. They have also made mandatory that the sender does all the paperwork for postal services from taiwan to the usa, this is clearly to allow denial of responsibility as the post office can claim they didnt fill anything out. a dick move for a now lazy and entitled system, to say the least. postal services via ocean freight still ndoest seem to require this. however sending cean freight via. post to usa is a gamble, they really are truly unorganized and lost packages, packages delivered to opposite sides of the country etc are common place now. Be warned. We have had about 600k in product lost due to the USPS ineptitude, and theyvliterally just tell.you to piss off. If they fuck up the delivery, and it gets returned,t hey have the nerve here to ask you to pay for the return delivery. Have been to blows many times over this to the point we just use freight forwarders now. Dont expect things to get better for the customer.
