If the Olympics hadn’t caused enough problems of exporters, wholesale dropshippers and anybody else sourcing from China then this definitely will. The country is shutting down for a week. It’s the National Day Holiday Break and anybody looking to get anything to them from China next week had better get their order in by Thursday, September 25th.

At the start of October China is going to take a week off to celebrate the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Also known as National Day, on the 1st of October in 1949. You’d have to say that the 2008 National Day holiday couldn’t have come at a better time with the entire country having just hosted the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2008 Paralympic Games. As a result there’s many people looking for a long break.

So, from October 1 to October 5 (and in some cases October eight) the whole country will shut down and people will go on holiday and go back and see their family.

Chinavasion will also shut down during this time, with the Chinavasion warehouse being closed from Wednesday October 1 to Sunday October 5th. Anybody wanting to get their orders processed before the break would probably need to do so by Thursday, September 25th to make sure that you or your customers get the items in time.

Holiday Date Duration (2008-)
Chinese New Year 1st day of 1st lunar month 3 days
Labor Day May 1 1 day
National Day October 1 3 days

Interested on when all the troublesome golden holidays fall? Here’s a chart that should explain it all. For February and October get goods ahead of time but in May things should be fine.

Orders placed with us in the holidays will be processed on October 6, when the warehouse opens again.

Thanks to Chinavasion’s new processing system anybody who has placed an order over the holidays shouldn’t have to wait too long for their products with all orders being placed during the holiday season being shipped out within three days of the warehouse re-opening.

This is thanks to our new improved stock system, which allows us to get things to customers faster, and our policy to put dropshippers’ orders first in daily priority lists will make sure that nobody sheds their reputation through the holiday.

If you have had customers asking us for any of these hot electronic gadgets and need to place your wholesale dropship order with us to get it to them in early October you’d better get your skates on

So if you’re looking to get an order in and want to get stock to customers in a hurry you’ll need to get in before September 25th to guarantee your customers get items in time. But if nothing is on fire then you won’t have to wait till things return back to normal thanks to Chinavasion’s new stocking system and supply policies.
