Shipping and Delivery
Shipping times displayed on Gearbest refer to the estimated time it takes for packages to leave our hands. Since the actual delivery of your order can be impacted by many events beyond Gearbest’s control once it leaves our facilities, we suggest that if customers have a special occasion or event that they wish to use their item for, such as a birthday, that they order their items well in advance. GearBest cannot be held liable for late deliveries. We will, however, work with you to ensure a smooth shopping experience.
For a smooth delivery and peace of mind, we strongly recommend that customers purchase shipping insurance during the checkout.In the event that your package has a shipping issue, Gearbest will send you a replacement package free of charge. If the item is no longer in stock, we will offer you a refund option.
Any orders that do not have shipping insurance will not be the responsibility of GearBest and the customer takes full liability for their package during the shipping process.
GearBest provides information via banners on our site and through newsletters to customers, that provide details of shipping delays due to the Christmas peak season, and encourages customers to order in advance. We can therefore not be held responsible if a customer does not receive their order in time for Christmas.
There may be occasions when GearBest confirms your order but subsequently learns that it cannot supply the ordered product. In the event we cannot supply a product you ordered in a timely fashion, GearBest will contact customers and offer to cancel the order and refund the purchase cost in full.
We try to make the delivery process as simple as possible and we are able to send your order either to you home or to your work place. We can ship to PO Boxes via all shipping methods, except for expedited shipping methods, as signatures are required upon delivery. Express shipments of this type can only be delivered to physical addresses.
Shipping and delivery times are calculated in working days from Monday to Friday. In the case of major holidays such as Christmas and the Chinese Lunar New Year, please allow extra delivery time. During those special occasions we will provide notices to reflect possible delays.
Customers are responsible for providing complete and accurate shipping addresses. GearBest cannot make changes to your shipping address once a package has been shipped, and GearBest is not liable for packages lost due to incomplete or inaccurate addresses.
Gearbest cannot be held responsible for any package that does not make it through the local customs and is destroyed due to the item being illegal in the destination country. Customers are solely responsible for complying with their local laws. We can also not be held responsible for any import tax that may occur and it is the customers sole responsibility to pay this fee, if any. Kindly note that shipping insurance does not cover any customs issues, including but not limited to, goods being destroyed or confiscated due to their illegal status in any given destination country.
Should the buyer refuse the package due to import duties or taxes, the buyer takes full liability for all the costs involved in the process.
All orders reported as “delivered” by shipping companies are considered delivered. GearBest cannot be made liable of non-delivery in this case.
If a delivery fails for any reason and the address sent to was the correct address as provided by the customer, GearBest cannot be held liable if a package is returned.
Whatever the customer orders is what we ship. We can not be held liable for the customer receiving the wrong item if they placed the wrong order.
Due to international trade embargos and sanctions currently in place, a limited number of countries are subject to limited shipping restrictions. These include: Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Syria and sudan. Orders with shipping addresses within these countries can only be accepted if they contain apparel products and nothing else.
