What is Processing Time (Processing Days)

processing time

Sellers can specify a processing time for items they sell. The processing time may vary from 1 day to several week (different shops, different policies). If the seller specified a processing time, you can see that on the item listing page under Shipping and return policy. You’ll see ‘Ready to ship in XX days’. The number of days is the processing time.

One item in an order: If the processing time for your item is a range, like “3–5 business days,” we use the end of the range to determine when you can open a case or leave a review. In the example above, we’d use 5  business days.
