Question

I assume that "they" are "Marketplace." If so, the theoretical answer is that items are shipped and delivered at precisely the same instant.  As soon as the item shows as "Delivered" in your Transaction History, it has been sent and, theoretically, delivered. 

However, there's no way to predict the randomness that messes up theory.  Items that are sold in Marketplace are not delivered by Marketplace,  They are delivered from the merchant's Magic Box, a scripted prim somewhere on the merchant's land in SL.  If the Magic Box's script jams, or the sim goes offline, or the merchant makes a mistake along the way, or if you make a mistake (order too many things at once, forget to come in world to receive your purchases, accidentally refuse delivery ...), Marketplace might think that an item was delivered .... but it wasn't. That's not the way the system is supposed to work, so there's no way to predict it.
