    I ordered a handful of things from the Apple.fr, including a MBP that's supposed to arrive by January 31st.

    I also ordered a Belkin USB-C to USB-B "printer" cable that's scheduled to arrive the 28th of February. Can someone tell me why the predicted delivery date is two months away?

    If I can, I'll just buy one if a store around the time I pick up my MB.

    Or are they in the process of making these??

    Anybody have an idea why the delivery date is so late? Should I just cancel the order and buy it in a store? Can it be bought in stores?

    This style USB-B? This is a USB 2.0.. StarTech.com 1m (3ft) USB-C to USB-B Cable - M/M - USB 2.0 - USB Type-C to USB Type-B Cable - Newegg.com Yes, I realize you're not from the US, based on the Apple site you say you ordered from and your profile, just showing that they ARE available.

    Here's a 3.3M one on Amazon (surely you have a local Amazon page). Amazon.com: Cable Matters USB 2.0 Type C (USB-C) to Type B (USB-B) Printer Scanner Cable in Black 6.6 Feet: Computers & Accessories

    Both appear to be available. Why is Apple not shipping yours for so long? Only Apple knows - best guess is that either they're sold out or they don't even expect stock for some time yet.

    You could also get a USB-C male to USB-A female adapter to plug in your existing cable. Amazon.com: AUKEY USB-C to USB 3.0 Adapter, Set of 2: Computers & Accessories

    Please don't be frustrated your question wasn't answered as quickly as you hoped it would be, yesterday was a holiday on which many people spend a lot of time partying rather than sitting in front of their computers.

    Is this the cable you ordered - Mfr. Part Number: F2CU028yw1M-WHT This one shows as available on the US Apple site (where I'm from), I could have it as early as Wednesday.

    Hey I'm not frustrated I just wanted to bump the thread cause it was falling back and I was afraid no one would see it. Yeah I noticed that they're "in stock" in the US. For some reason the french apple store has this long delivery wait.

    Anyway, I wanted to include it in my total order cause I was getting a discount. I'm just gonna cancel it from Apple though and order it on Amazon as you suggested. It's cheaper even.
