Shein made headlines in July 2022 as it was revealed that it had overtaken Amazon has the most-downloaded shopping application in the United States. And those headlines brought a lot of new customers to the Chinese fashion retailer … but how does shipping work?
How Long Does Shein Take to Ship?
Shein has a vast fulfillment network, consisting of warehouses in Asia, America, Europe and the Middle East. The retailer aims to ship orders in one to three business days.
How Long Does Shein Take to Deliver?
How long it’ll take for your Shein order to arrive depends on whether your nearest warehouse has the items you’ve ordered in stock, and whether you opted for Standard Shipping or Express Shipping. But consider most to be arriving from China.
Standard Shipping can take three to six weeks from the time the order is processed; Express Shipping aims to have it at your door within one to three weeks. Again, this depends on where it’s coming from — if it’s local, it’ll arrive faster than overseas.
You’ll also find that your order could arrive in several shipments, some sooner than others, if some of the items you’ve ordered are available locally, and others have to be flown in from abroad. This will be reflected in the order confirmation, with individual tracking numbers.
Shein notes that most stock is stored in China, and that it covers all customs fees.
