The time taken for your order to be shipped to you tends to take away some fun and excitements that comes with online shopping. There is literally nothing wrong with “shipping” only that you have to anxiously wait for your order to arrive and waiting is no fun.
Just like every other global online stores, Geekbuying provides you with multiple shipping options for your convenience. It’s up to you select how fast and how much you want to pay for shipping.
In this article, we will be looking at the different shipping options available at Geekbuying for your understanding, this will help you in knowing how to choose the best shipping option for your order.
Firstly, let’s look at the available shipping methods
Geekbuying Shipping Methods
Geekbuying is truly a global online store; they ship to almost all countries around the world with the given four options to choose from when it comes to shipping. Below are the shipping options available on Geekbuying:
1. Unregistered Air Mail
This is a free shipping option and it is available for all products and most countries that Geekbuying ships to but also the slowest in terms of delivery time. Items shipped with Unregistered Air Mail can take more than a month (for some countries) to reach your doorstep.
Another disadvantage of the Unregistered Air Mail is that you won’t get any tracking number which means you won’t have any idea of where your parcel is at any point in time. This can be a problem when your order didn’t arrive because it will be harder to track thereby making it take longer for customer service to resolve the issue.
This shipping method is best for low cost items and for orders that are not urgent.
You should also note that although you won’t pay any shipping fee to Geekbuying , local shipping fees and import custom fees may apply depending on your country.
2. Registered Air Mail
This is the next cheapest option. Still takes a bit long but more convenient and less of a hassle because you will get a tracking number for your shipped order.
Normally orders over $30 will be automatically switched to Registered Air Mail. Delivery time for this option can take anywhere form 10 to 30 business days depending on your location.
This option is best if you order isn’t urgent but you want more safety.
3. Priority Mail
A faster shipping option. A little more expensive than the former but still very affordable. Takes anywhere from 7 to 15 days for US, Europe, Australia and most countries and 10 to 25 days for Russia. You also get a tracking number for this option which means you can know where your parcel is at any point in time.
This option is best for orders that are not too urgent but you still want them to arrive as soon as possible.
4. Expedited or Express Shipping
This is obviously the fastest shipping option that Geekbuying provides. With this option, you can get your order to your doorsteps within few days. Usually in less than a week depending on your location and the location of the warehouse the order is being shipped from. Needless to say that it cost a lot more than the options.
This option is recommended for high-value items and for very urgent orders. It is important to note that Geekbuying shipping fees does not include import duty fees that may apply for some countries.
Pro tip: Make sure to choose delivery from a local warehouse (when available) or choose a warehouse that is closest to your location. This will bring shipping cost and delivery time down.
