COVID-19 and shipping

With COVID-19 shutting every thing down do you dare order anything from places like Banggood or HobbyKing? Checked both sites and neither one says anything about not shipping.

Re: COVID-19 and shipping

From what I've read the virus can't live without a host for longer than 12 hours, so even if someone sneezed in the mail bag you can't get sick. I think the population that's infected and walking around should be more of a concern. How many people can afford to self quarantine without a pay check?
Cheers Floyd

Re: COVID-19 and shipping

China is no longer the worry, outnof the 80k infected they are less than 20k remaining.

USA will be the biggest soon as most have not reported until recently. Funding was provided to healthcare for screening, prior to last week, screening was a Pay as you go.

Italy and Iran are still on the upswing too, and Canada is also still on the upswing.

So ordering from China, non issue.

Re: COVID-19 and shipping

We can speculate all we want but in actual fact, I ordered an item from China a while ago and tracking shows it sitting in China with a red letter warning that it's delayed indefinitely

No speculation here, I ordered from ZYhobby last week, it arrived today.

Yup that's what I'm worried about, I don't want to put a big order in and then have it held up and not shipped.

Re: COVID-19 and shipping

Nothing beats empirical data! Order something inexpensive that you’re not in a hurry for, and see what happens. Then you’ll know definitively.

Ordered an Ender 3 from Creality in Shenzen on Jan 19. Received it 24 Feb and assembled it 01 Mar.

Still healthy!
