The Corona virus has killed more than 1,000 people, and while many provinces in China are under curfew, such as Hubei Province, the outbreak of the virus, so many factories have been shut down, affecting commodity production. Almost all the products around us are made in China, or at least some of their ingredients are made in China, so curfew affects the entire world. Many airlines also announced cancellation of flights to China. Cancellations not only affect holidays, but also shipments from Eli Express, Alibaba, Ibayi and more. If you are building on cheap products from China, especially on the Purim costumes, you should consider this again as shipping may not be coming any time soon.

Amazon: Buy Amazon-supplied products only

Last November, Amazon launched a website in Hebrew and alongside it also launched a free shipping deal on purchases over $ 49. The offer still exists, and can be enjoyed today. However, these are products that are only shipped by Amazon, in which case it is a significant advantage and most importantly - peace of mind, but it must be ensured that the products you purchase are actually shipped by Amazon. Amazon's inventory management method works differently from eBay and other sites, since Amazon allows sellers to keep inventory in the company's warehouses, as well as handling logistics and shipping. This is an advantage, as shipments leave the United States, so delays are not expected. The full product list can be found here.

Ebay: Beware of the "Drop - Shipping" method

Nowadays you can find sellers from all over the world, with each product shipped from another country, depending on the seller's location. However, you can filter through eBay by searching for the product. To do this, look for the product, and after the product list appears on the left side of the site, you can find filters to filter the result. Go down until you find "Item Location". There they chose North America and Europe.

It is also important to take into account the "drip shipping" method. This is a selling method that requires zero financial investment, but only proper and smart marketing. In fact, by the same method, sellers find existing merchandise on eBay or other sites, and offer it more seductively. Thus, the consumer places an order at a store in eBay, pays to the seller, and in return he orders another merchant from the same product, only changing the shipping details. Sometimes these sellers identify themselves under the wrong location, with the whole product shipped from China. In this case, it is important to pay attention to the product price, as if it is too low compared to other sellers and the shipping fee is free, it may be shipped from China.

Don't take a risk: Forget about Express, Alibaba, and other Chinese sites

The Chinese sites rely on merchandise found only in China. Due to the curfew and interrupted flights, disruptions in shipping times to Israel appear likely. For example, it is possible that a product that is in stock in a non-curated warehouse will come to Israel significantly late, because the number of flights has decreased significantly and direct flights between Israel and China have been discontinued. Therefore, it is advisable at this time not to place orders from the Chinese sites. Another important thing to note because of many questions that have arisen online, the Corona virus does not pass through packages or deliveries.
