Chinese New Year (CNY) also known as the Spring Festival 2021 is coming around the corner.

The great news is most of the Spocket suppliers are based in North America and Europe so they will not be affected and their order fulfillment will continue as per normal.

However, do note that some suppliers that have USA and China warehouses may experience order delays.

My supplier is not listed on the table above - are they taking time off?

Any product listings that have a shipping origin of China and Hong Kong, as well as all suppliers who have USA & China warehouses are expected to experience fulfillment delays.

You should be able to know if a supplier has both USA & China warehouse by looking at the bottom right corner of the product disclaimers. Suppliers that have warehouses in the USA & China will have a description that says "International orders (Outside of USA) will be shipped from our China warehouse".

For these suppliers, please expect an order fulfillment delay from approximately February 8. 2021 to February 26, 2021. In addition, allocate a few extra days of possible delay from shipping carriers.

What do to during the Chinese New Year period?

  • Notify your customers about this shipping delay

  • Temporarily hide affected products from your store

  • Reduce the amount of ad budget for affected products

  • Allocate your ad budget to North American and EU suppliers (that do not have an associated China warehouse) during this period

  • Be wary of time-sensitive items such as Valentine's gift orders. Be sure to notify your customers about this possibility of delay

  • Ask Spocket's team for a recommendation of suppliers who aren't celebrating the Chinese New Year/Spring Festival which might fit your product niche

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to approach our Customer Support team at support@spocket.co 😊
