  • Maybe because it is 6, 486 miles from Hong Kong to LA. That is a long way for them to travel.

  • Most products come from China by ship. Then they have to get from the dock to wherever they are going in the US. Takes awhile, but keeps the costs down.

  • It probably depends on how large the item is and if it's having a hard time going through customs.
    It also depends on the supplier.

    I buy from an online shop that's based in Hong Kong. (It's a cell phone accessory store), and I get all my products within a week.
