Warnings over mail delays due to current security situation

eBay.com have warned their US sellers that packages destined for the Manchester area may be subject to delays due to the recent atrocity at the Ariana Grande concert.

“If you are a buyer or seller involved in a delivery from the US to the UK via the Global Shipping Program, please be sure to communicate with your trading partner to alert them to a possible delay”.

eBay also said that they will extend seller protections for US sellers involved in such transactions. There are no actions you need to take; eBay will automatically apply the protections.

Here in the UK, Royal Mail warn that “mail posted between the UK and Europe may be delayed due to the current security situation”.
