Processing time “47 Business Days” , that’s nearly 10 weeks.
I’ve bought from Banggood many times and on the whole I’ve been very pleased with their service. However this sounds very similar to a practice that Gearbest were very heavily criticised for. GB would take orders for an item that had been heavily discounted but wasn’t in stock, that wouldn’t stop them from taking the full payment. After a period of time they would then inform those that had ordered the item that there had been problems securing the shipment from the manufacturer, and then offer a refund but only as store credit.
Call me cynical but with the obvious loss of trade they’ll have suffered over recent months I wouldn’t be surprised if this could be a ruse to raise some quick cash.
