Thank you executeme for pointing these dates out to all of us!
Just remember to do the following before submitting your order:
- Check out the seller’s shipping policy (often located in their profile).
- Convo the seller by clicking the “contact” link under their avatar to ask if they will expedite shipping if you are worried.
- Don’t overlook International sellers! Look into their profile or shop announcement or contact them to see how long it would take to get an item to you. Sometimes it’s just as fast as the shipping time within the U.S.
And sellers, make sure your profiles are updated with your Holiday Shipping dates to keep your buyers in the know. Check out our previous article on shipping here.
