For some really popular & common small items there are a few China/Hong Kong sellers that use local warehouses like in Melbourne/Sydney.
Those sellers are really good in that you get cheap prices but also local shipping so it's really fast.
Memory cards are a good example of that.
I think if Trump really does want to make America great again maybe he should try to figure out how to ship things cheaper. A lot of stuff I've looked at it's usually the shipping cost that deters me...but then the wait and unreliability are other factors.
Missing words I thought I had in my posts, time for bed.
I know a lot of people think ordering something just before Christmas is bad, but it can actually be a good thing. The chance that something that will be delayed (but not lost) is higher so if you're lucky you can end up with 2 of the same item for the price of one.
Every year I usually make up a list of odd stuff over a few months that I don't need urgently, then order it all just before Christmas
I've got about $70au worth of little things I'm waiting for atm.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
