The estimated delivery time is based on the seller’s handling time, the shipping service selected, and when the seller receives cleared payment. In certain cases, the estimated delivery time will vary. By knowing the estimated delivery time, you can determine how long it will take to receive the item.
Sellers are required to specify how long they will take to package and ship the item after receiving cleared payment. Sellers may select a handling time between 1 to 30 days.
Some shipping services provide an estimate for number of days that it will take the carrier to deliver the item to the buyer. This transit time does not include the seller’s handling time. It includes normal weekdays. Often Saturdays, Sundays, and major holidays are not included in transit time estimates.
A payment is considered “cleared” after the money from the buyer has been deposited into the seller’s account. However if the buyer pays by cheque or demand draft, it may take several days
Estimated delivery time
Estimated delivery time is the total amount of time that it will take for the buyer to receive the item based on the handling time, the shipping service selected, and the type of payment used.
