GearBest shipping memo: save money on delivery by choosing the best option
Online shopping has never been more convenient. We browse through countless pages of deals and offers from the comfort of our homes and can order them instantly to be delivered to our doorstep.
The waiting, however, is the hardest part.
In this post, we take a look at the best ways to get your GearBest orders delivered and explain various shipping options.
GearBest shipping methods
GearBest ships to most countries in the world and gives you the choice of one of the 4 shipping methods.
Unregistered air mail: FREE, but can take more than a month for some countries. No tracking number, which means you will be left in the dark as to where your parcel is. There is some risk involved as well - should anything happen to you package, it will be hard to determine at which stage of the delivery process it went missing.
Thus, unregistered air mail is most suitable for low value items under $30 and works for orders that are not urgent.
Note: You won't have to pay any delivery fees from GearBest warehouse to the border with your country. However, local shipping costs and customs fees may apply.
Registered air mail: shipment of all orders over $30 will be automatically switched to registered mail. This is the most low-cost shipping method that will get you a tracking number. Shipping time varies, depending on destination, from 10 to 30 business days.
Priority line: takes from 7 to 15 (US, Europe, Australia) to 10-25 days (Russia). You will get a tracking number to monitor your parcel in transit.
Expedited shipping: THE FASTEST trackable way to get your GearBest order to your doorstep. Recommeded for high-value orders.
Please note that shipping fees do not include customs fees - which are different for every country. We suggest you get in touch with your local customs office and check the potential fees in advance.
