Over the past few weeks I've made a number of small orders with Ebuyer - £50 - £100 area. As the items were not urgent, each time I've gone for the free delivery option which is supposed to be 5 to 7 days. Every order was delivered to me the day after I placed the order.
All my frequent deliveries from Ebuyer are on the free delivery option, and I asked questions once about "very last moment" that I was receiving some of the goods placed on order. Apparently, this is all to do with 'work load priorities' and times of placing an order.The within 5 days is only a guideline.
I ordered an item on Sunday and had it delivered the following Tuesday when Ebuyer said it would be a Friday delivery. I thought it was because I am only about 30 miles from their depot but it looks like it applies to eveyone. Thanks Ebuyer.
