About how long does shipping take?

Hi Nicole!


There are two key factors to consider in calculating the estimated delivery or receipt of your order. That would be the "Processing time" of the item and "Delivery time" which depends on the shipping carrier that you selected upon placing the order. Items have different processing times depending on what the seller have set for it.

The "Processing time" is the time given to the seller to prepare or make the item before they can ship it out. The "Delivery time" is the time that the shipping carrier will deliver it to you after the seller ships it out or after the order is dispatched. You can see both these time frames on the Item Pages so that it gives you an idea as to how long it may take.

It took over a month and a half. And that was only after I called their customer service line and they told me that I needed to threaten to cancel the order for them to expedite it. I hated the dress. It looked nothing like what they had pictured. I would not recommend ordering from them

Shipping took a very long time. If I remember correctly it was three weeks or so

If they do not say that it is not in Stock after you pay for the itwm, it should take about 20 to 30 days.
It may take them two weeks before they let you know it's not in Stock.
Good luck.

mine took about 3 weeks, but was wrong color. so much hassle to return, ended up keeping it at a greatly reduced price (they credited me).

Nicole, you have to understand, ALL advertisers on DHGate are thieves. You will never get what you are promised from DHGate. The Chinese have no reason to ever deliver to you. There are no laws against stealing from Americans, it seems to be encouraged by the Chinese Government. Do yourself a favor, spend an extra 10%, buy it via Ebay, you will be dealing with Americans, that speak English as their first language. I have made three attempts to buy from DHGate, at all times under all circumstances, the Chinese have stolen the picture you're looking at, and you will never get what was promised by the Chinese. Please read what the others have posted, it's all true, and worse. In all 3 cases I never received anything, and remember I had to pay full price, in advance, and I got a FAKE tracking number, and never even received an empty box. If you send money to China, you will never receive anything, and you will be lied to, both by the FAKE seller, and DHGate customer service. This many customers can't all be lying. Henry

The shipping was promt (on time) but the dress was nothing like the pictures add. It was very poor quality more like a Halloween costume and I could not get a refund it was impossible to talk to anybody. Once I finally got a hold of customer service I was promised a full refund after submitted my pictures and claim however six months later still no refund! Horrible site!

it also depends on where the store is in china, remember you are not buying from DHGate but from an independent store THROUGH DHGATE.
In fairness, we have bought many, many things through DHGate and nearly all of them were ok. only two items never arrived and it took three months and countless emails to finally get a refund.
Shipping varies greatly some times quick, some times very slow.

It took my item 54 days. It arrived after my event even with a written promise from the seller that it would arrive in time. The dispute process took another many collective hours of my life that ended up in them basically telling me, "too bad." I will never purchase from this business again.

As u can see there are a few opinions there but depends on what you are buying dont buy anything unless it has trade assurance which means that dhgate have to give u 30 usd if its shipped late or not same as pictured , damaged, ive personally received everything purchased albeit with hours of typing online with customer service now i onlyuse express its the registered mail as free shipping that takes all the time ive been waiting since 4 of june for some things that only made it to the post on 22 july 6 weeks late so choose your seller questions about insurance on shipping time and delivery length etc ok
