Anyone notice eBay items from China taking 2 months to arrive?

Recently I had ordered some eBay items from different sellers in China (small and low cost), they are taking about 2 months to arrive (some which I am still waiting for). This seems unusually long compared to before when it would take 3-4 weeks at most.

Anyone else notice the same? I wonder why this is happening only recently.

I recently received an aliexpress item that allegedly was put on an airplane on February 6th. Some of my items arrive quickly while others are slow. I didn't notice any tampering of the slow items so I don't know why they were delayed.

I ordered 2 items more than a month ago. One item arrived last Thursday. Still waiting for the other. The vendor has been following up which is good considering it's a $2 item.

I am finding longer shipping times now.

I had one show up after almost 3 months. I completely forgot about it. It was past the time I could even leave feedback lol

Same here. My item made it to Vancouver in 13 days (air parcel). Been stuck at customs for 5 weeks now.

I'm thinking this is partially due to Canada Post cutting back service as they're not making any money as I find they're mail delivery is worst now than in the past. I've gotten more and more neighbours mail in mine and similarly they've been getting my mail more and more often.

You can contact the seller to tell them you haven't gotten stuff and they'll usually reship or refund.

Same here. Items are taking about twice along to arrive as they did a year ago.
