Hi, Maria! 

 

There are a few things you can do to improve your sentence:

 

Every time he SENDS us the products we receive THEM after the delivery HAS already left. 

 

SENDS: remember that your verb needs to agree with your subject. He/she/it agrees with "sends," not "send."

THEM: "products" is a plural noun. So the pronoun you replace it with should also be plural. "Them" is plural, but "it" is singular.

 HAS already left: You are talking about the present, something that regularly happens. So you need to use the present perfect here (HAS left), not the past perfect (HAD left). 

 

Hope that helps!
