Is anyone else becoming frustrated by the number of sellers selling from the Far East pretending to be based in the UK? It is very annoying when you wait so long for a delivery and when it arrived the postmark is Chinese.

Surely estimated delivery time tells you it is not in the UK.


If they state say 5 days, to give the impression that it is the UK, if item doesn't arrive within the time stated then as soon as it gets past that date, start an item not received case, and get a refund. Might teach the sellers a lesson.

Yes, there are numerous complaints on these boards.

 

When you select UK only that relates to where the item is supposed to be located, not the seller. Look at their feedback page and it will tell you where the seller is registered. Then at least you know if there is a chance that the item will be posted from China. It will be the same quality item no matter where it is sent from.
