How long should it take to get an item shipped from Shenzhen, China to Muncie, Indiana?
I ordered something on ebay and I would like to see the date or around the date it should arrive. First somewhat right answer gets the points.

I live in NYC and I order from China and Hong Kong a few times a month. It takes 14-25 days to receive. The package goes thru custom twice and the least amount of time it has taken for me to receive a package was 19 days and the longest was 26. You count from when the item was actually mailed off and then just wait. They do not use tracking so unfortunately you have to be patient and it will arrive when it gets here.

If you packaged it well and it was done so as to protect it from normal routing damage of any type...the client declined the insurance you offered...then you did your job and upheld your end of the deal. He should claim through USPS and/or Paypal...the burden of proof is on the client and once the pkg left your hands as long as you did everything you could to ensure it got to him safely under normal handling ... there is nothing you need to do other than apologize for the problem he's encountered and recommend he pursue this with the postal service. Likely they won't do much either so his next route will be Paypal but again...he could be disappointed. That said...if you want to retain this person as a repeat client if such is the case...you might consider asking him to return the item with it's original packaging intact and then you will assess the best solution ...whether it is a refund or an exchange...he will still be responsible for the cost of shipping and if you refund, deduct the shipping/handling fee...you will be doing this as a courtesy, it isn't an obligation if you did everything possible to get it to him safely. You can't be held responsible for a neglectful postal worker/workers but if you hope to retain his business...this route may make him a happy client anyway. Good luck whatever you decide.

It depends how and when they shipped it. And how long it's sitting in customs due to mail volume.
Depends if they ship it China post or EMS.
