Default Alibaba shipping times

Ordered an electronic part for one of my machines and the shipping confirmation email is dated 11/29. I guess this is coming from China, but I was just curious when I can expect it. I know the peak shipping season probably isn't helping.

Anybody order from Alibaba? What kind of shipping times to do you see?

I have ordered from them and waited 2 weeks just to get the "your item has shipped" notification. It was a long wait. I think 6 weeks.

Yes, I buy all my iphone charger cords on ali express. Unfortunately there's no way to give you a good answer. I've seen 8 days (it was prolly in a warehouse in Frisco). I've seen 4 weeks.

I use Prime A LOT. But Ali is worth it if you plan ahead. I order all my iPhone charge cords there. They run about 70 cents each. They're so cheap I have them deployed everywhere. Back porch, shop, every car, every other room, in my office, 2 or 3 in th computer bag, etc. The key is to keep some "in stock" so I don't have to be in a hurry when it's time to order.
