Same as that. I meant maybe coming from Europe to UK warehouse and then to be shipped out. Far more likely coming from USA or China, which maybe why they are asking for payment for faster delivery.
I got a phone from Spain on the way and the fast shipping was only €1 more than the slow, and the slow was estimated 12 days.
No idea why economy would be 5 weeks from the UK. Presumably not dispatched by Amazon.

Another S&S big delivery month (building stockpile before July 1st). Every item dispatched individually via An Post. 99.9% of my other deliveries come via Amazon Logistics so I don't get why this stuff comes in the post, some of it is quite bulky e.g kitchen roll

My issue with Amazon UK at moment is the unavailability of new music releases (CDs, vinyl, multi disc sets). They're just listed for pre-order and are already "temporarily unavailable" if you're ordering from outside UK. Some of them become available closer to release date but others have to be obtained from elsewhere. It's affecting more than Irish customers as I see online discussion from people in other parts of Europe not being able to order items. All of this is down to Brexit. For some reason, DVDs and BDs are not affected.

I haven't ordered from Amazon.co.uk since the end of December, just before Brexit. I ordered a beard trimmer (in-stock and fulfilled by Amazon) on Sunday and just got a delivery date of 18 July. I have Prime and it's shipping via priority delivery.

Can anyone explain what is going on and why it'll take so long?

It will probably arrive before that but what can happen is that the stock is in a warehouse that doesn't ship directly to Ireland (could even be in Germany or France) so they either eventually get around to shipping from the EU or wait till its back in stock in a nearer fulfillment center.

But I'm open to other suggestions.

Thanks for the explanation. Overall situation seems mad.

In fairness, I haven't had much issues to be honest (bar January and February when Brexit made a mess of everything but that has passed). All items usually delivered within 48hrs.

If anything, I've made some nice savigns with VAT not being charged for most goods under £22. Not good for the Irish revenue service of course.

It will inprove further when the fulfillment centre in West Dublin opens early next year.

Think you are charged their fee + vat on whatever it is and a possible service fee. So for example a €50 item might cost €69.50 + €3.50 service fee.

Had a banner offering me student prime 6 months free then half price. Clicked it to see, and all I had to do was enter a finishing date and it activated!
I'm not a student
