      Well, Elvis! It depends on where you have ordered China or US. If you have ordered in China, it takes a few days to manufacture and then they need time to send to the warehouse. If the manufacturer ships by sea, it takes almost 60 days to reach the Amazon warehouse, so no worries.

      If your shipment is delayed it is advised to track the shipment using the carrier’s tracking number or you can contact the shipping carrier for specific updates.

      Elvis, Your package may take longer than expected to arrive at the Amazon warehouse for a number of reasons. A possibilities is that the package is still being processed and the warehouse hasn’t yet received it. It could take some time for the cargo to be checked in, sorted, and made available for fulfillment during busy times or peak seasons. Transportation difficulties may also be a cause of the delay. Various factors, including inclement weather, logistical difficulties, customs clearance processes (for overseas goods), and carrier-related issues, can cause transit delays. These elements may affect the anticipated delivery date and cause delays.

      If ordered from China, manufacturing and shipping to the warehouse takes a few days, or around 60 days by sea.
