I've placed an order for 2 covers for a OnePlus 6 which came to R190 all inclusive yesterday. Will see how long it will take once "shipped"
Yeah,we are trying our best to provide the best service.I think I will actually be more keen to order now with that piece of mind option, but will await reviews of this method from users who do frequently purchase from Gearbest. Looking forward to being able to utilize a South African directed option. Nice to see Gearbest is trying to accommodate us!
