Many of the items that I've bought from ebay take more than 45 days
from date of sale to arrive in South Africa, especially older, full
machines sent via surface shipping. Which is why I think the 45 day
from *sale* (rather than delivery) period is a shame and why I'm
hesitant to order from Ebay (and will only order if the items is small
and can be sent using airmail).
