Today we released the latest version, V1.1.14, of our free FBDS Chrome extension!
With this release, we added a "shipping time indicator" for each product, where you can see approximately how long it takes to get the product delivered (see screenshot below).
There are 3 categories of delivery time:
Deliver in 5 - 7 days: Product will be shipped from one of our US warehouses and is expected to be delivered in 5 – 7 days once it's shipped out.
Deliver in 8 - 12 days: Product will be shipped from one of our warehouses outside of US and is expected to be delivered in 8 – 12 days once it's shipped out.
Deliver in 14 - 20 days: Product will be shipped from our warehouses outside of US and may subject to additional custom inspection. It is expected to be delivered in 14 – 20 days once it's shipped out.
Please keep in mind that
- Although in most cases you'll get the USPS tracking number within one business day, it could take up to 3 business days to actually ship the product out. Please make sure you fact it in the total delivery time when communicate with your buyers.
- The expected delivery time is under the assumption that the corresponding products are in stock and under normal conditions. If, for example, our US warehouse is running out of stock, the system will automatically switch to other warehouses to fulfill the order, which could make the actual shipping time longer. The ongoing pandemic could certainly impact the delivery time as well.
Given the inherent uncertainty that are out of our control, in general, it's always recommended to underpromise and overdeliver when communicating with your customers.
Meanwhile, we're working hard to streamline the data sharing along all aspect of our supply chain so that we can get you the most accurate estimation in shipping time.
