Severe weather conditions from snowfall are currently affecting parts of the United Kingdom and are causing delays. Due to this eBay have extended buyer facing delivery estimates in impacted postcode areas. This is in addition to the areas impacted by Royal Mail Coronavirus delays to mail.
Typically, we’ve seen in the past that the extended buyer facing delivery estimates will retain the original delivery date but instead of being a single day the estimation will now be a range three or four days past the normal expected date.
eBay say that they are actively monitoring the situation and will make any changes as required.
