Chinese New Year Holiday Notice

Please note that due to the upcoming Chinese New Year, our processing team, suppliers, and logistics partners will be on their long-awaited vacation from January 18-27, 2023. There will be delays in processing and shipping orders placed days before the Spring Break begins and during the vacation period.

We will resume operations the next day, January 28, to process all orders. 

If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to send a message to our support team. We thank you for your understanding and patience.

We wish everyone a happy Chinese New Year. 

COVID-19 Restrictions Delay

We would like to explain the current delay situation that is affecting some orders. During the first week of November, we have been informed by our warehouse team that some completion of orders will be delayed because of the COVID-19 restrictions that were imposed on our suppliers’ locations. It affected the shipment and arrival of our stocks from our supplier to our warehouse. At first, we believed that it will only last for an additional five to seven days so we posted an update about it and duly informed our customers who had orders that were affected by this situation.

Unfortunately by mid-November, the restrictions were not lifted yet. Basically, most areas in Guangzhou were still affected. By then, we have started partially shipping orders that had other items that were already ready for shipping. We have also continued to send update emails to concerned customers about the delay.

Around December 9th, we were told that the situation is getting better so the restrictions have been lifted. Since then, our team has been working around the clock to get the orders shipped out. Orders are being fulfilled one at a time. 

Though that situation had already passed, our warehouse processing team is still dealing with the pending orders due to the restocking production delay on our suppliers’ side despite our side working normally. Another factor that might still affect your order would be the local courier services. Since the restrictions happened and some local courier staff was affected by the virus, manpower handling the delivery of stocks from our supplier to our warehouse might be limited. 

Over the past few weeks, we have encountered some difficulties. We appreciate your patience as we work through this challenging period. Since the majority of the orders are for gifts for the holiday season, we completely understand how unfortunate it is for this to happen now. Once more, we sincerely apologize for the worry this has caused everyone.
