6. Monitor your delivery
In general, most sellers ship their goods about two to three working days after payment has been made. Delivery speed can be affected by a few things, including how far your seller is located from the warehouse. Once the seller sends out the item, the delivery status will be updated to “卖家已经出货”, which means that your item has been sent out. Need to send a chaser? Try using Aliwangwang, a messenger program which helps you to contact the seller directly.
