Banggood parcels of mine claimed to be shipped already from 20/01, still saying order confirmed on the tracking. Items were all in stock. Giving them bit more time before I take it up with PayPal. Chinese New year excuses can't last forever

canceled a few that were getting delayed etc. Then re ordered after confirming with some sellers on gearbest.
also Buffalo Courier are only going back to work on 12 Feb they say.
so besides courier delays AND seller delays, you gotta make sure.

I ended up re ordering and using DHL instead for the ones i needed ASAP. DHL working like normal..no new year and flu stories..

Very few phones ship from banggood to rsa(these days). Not all suppliers on gearbest send to rsa, but is gearbest has stock, they should ship without issues. Have not checked myself

so all in all what an amazing experience with DHL express.
sure it cost a bit, but they literally picked up the phone Friday morning in HK, sent me customs invoice, i paid, it cleared customs, and DHL was at my dor Sunday 2pm. just over 2 days end-to-end.
Got a lenovo z5s for under 3k all in, dhl express+customs+phone. in 2 days!

Last BG order from 19Jan shipped 10th and i recieved a notification that ut woyld be Paxi via Pep.

From fastway to my door, then Churchills with some delays to my door, now i have to go to a Pep store to collect. i guess with Buffalos pricing I can't really complain.

Is it okay to make orders now or will there be delays because of that virus?

They may be keeping parcels in the warehouse for some time so the virus (if any) dies?

I ordered a phone from Gearbest last week Thursday. It just arrived. Very happy.

Um now I just hope that it doesn't come with the Corona virus.
