ya never know what ships from China.
I hate that. Ordered lint free swabs to clean electronic contacts.
Can't find an indication on any given page that says ships from a 3rd world country of 90% slaves with 1st class infrastructure that no normal person has access to.
Unless it says at check-out.
Still hate it.

The delivery estimate (which should be on the product page in the right column under price) is usually a dead giveaway, and if you click on the "Used & New" link to get a listing of all the sellers, it will tell you where each item ships from (if it's not Amazon itself), i.e. state or country.

Note, this is on a computer. May be different in a mobile app.

Fritz, I think you'd be shocked by the amount of 'Sold by Amazon' goods that originate in China. Heck, GM makes some Buick & Cadillac models in China that are sold in the US.

Nope I wouldn't be shocked. I just don't want to wait for them to be shipped. I could care less where they're made. That's just the state of the economy these days.

Choose a delivery option:
[ ] Wednesday, Nov. 14 - Monday, Nov. 19
$39.99 - Expedited Shipping

[ ] Friday, Nov. 30 - Friday, Dec. 21
FREE Standard Shipping

You were trying to save a couple of bucks and got suckered into the swabs shipped free from a warehouse in China. Lesson learned.

He's talking about cheap trinkets that ship from China with an estimated delivery date two or three weeks from when they finally get around to shipping the item.

Stuff where the cost of the item plus shipping is simply too good to be true.

Guess I misunderstood him stating a 3rd world country of 90% slaves with 1st class infrastructure that no normal person has access to as he detested PROC products.
So China OK, slow boat not? thumbsup smiley

I do avoid food products from China as much as possible.
PRoC as a source for some things is unavoidable.

But it's the ship time because it comes from China.
I have received electronic bits from China, but it was a week, at most.

Had I had been more careful about reading the "fine" print, shipping from PRoC, I'd have looked for an "local" alternative.

My bad, but the beez could be more forthcoming.
But that ain't the way you become a beezillionaire I guess.
