    I am looking on ebay and Amazon for stuff, it seems most are based in China/USA (abroad).

    If I purchase from these, will it get here?

    Cheers
    John

    Yes, mostly it will.

    Depending on what your looking at have a look on Banggood,Gearbest or Wish.

    You might find it a lot cheaper. Some have UK or Europe warehouses as well and while not everything is available from them and the cost is a bit more they arrive a lot quicker.

    Agree with PM, but sometimes the quality can be iffy especially for things such as LED lights. If it is more than (say) £50 I tend to buy through Amazon as that gives me a better returns option, even though the item is often more expensive.

    John if you use Wish, stand by for lots of emails and newsletters. I unsubscribed from them.

    When the Thought Police arrive at your door, think -
    I'm out.

    Thanks Ed

    I won’t use Wish then Bob, but then if I use my hardly used email it will wake it up.

    Cheers
    John
