One of the most important things buyers want to know, is how long it will take for them to receive their order. A good way to let your buyers know this information, is to complete the processing and shipping times for each listing. You may even want to place this information in your item description and on your Store Policy Page.
The processing time is amount of time from when a buyer places an order and you ship it. Shipping time is how long it will take to receive the item once you have placed it in mail.
When it comes to processing and shipping times, I believe it is better to overestimate the time. If it takes you an average of 2 days to prepare and process an item for shipping, you may want to set your processing time to 3-5 days or even longer in case you end up running a little behind schedule. If the post office gives you a time frame of 3 days for shipping. You may want to set your shipping time to 7 – 10 business days.
