What if I want to ship to the country that is not on this list?

Need to ship to countries not supported by ePacket? Not a problem. We use multiple shipping services and cover every single country around the world! Just let us know if you want to ship to countries not supported by ePacket and we'll provide you pricing accordingly.

Average ePacket Shipping Times

Brazil: 20 to 30 business days

Mexico: 20 business days

Russia, Ukraine and Saudi Arabia: 7-15 business days

All other supported countries: 7-10 business days

But this list is different from what I’ve seen on other sites!

Yes, this list might be different from what you’ve seen on other sites. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of confusion out there about ePacket.

Part of the problem stems from the fact that the USPS also has a service called ePacket. Their ePacket service is only for packages that originate in the US. Obviously, China Post’s ePacket service is for packages that originate in China.

As far as we can tell (but we’re not 100% sure), certain countries like Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Malta, and Gibraltar are served by USPS ePacket.

Those countries are not served by China Post’s ePacket.

Yes, we’re sure of this. After all, shipping via ePacket is what we do.

About the Author

Afroz Nissar

I've been helping companies grow in the e-commerce space for almost a decade. I've saved companies countless hours of work and, most importantly, helped them significantly improve their bottom line.

That said, ePacket Express was... unexpected. I was using ePackets to ship my own products from China when I realized that there were a lot of other entrepreneurs out there that wanted to use the service but couldn't. Since I already had the infrastructure in place to manage inventory and ship packages, I figured it would be nice to help my fellow entrepreneurs with their logistics.

And here we are now.

  1. Hi,
    Is there any plans to extend epacket services to India in the near future? That would be much appreciated by the entrepreneur community.

    Best Regards,
    Zain

    1. Hi Zain,

      Unfortunately, that’s not a question I have the answer to. I do know that China Post is always working on expanding the list of countries that they can serve via ePacket.

      I’ll be sure to update this list every time they add a new country so keep an eye out!

    2. Hi Zain,

      We have some good news! There is a new option for shipping to India. I will send you the details in an email.

        1. Hi Pragadish,

  3. The link is in Chinese. Can we get an English link so I can see the rates/terms on ePacket Express Please?

    1. Hi Kandi,
      Sorry for the late response! We somehow missed your comment. The link is in Chinese because it’s by China Post (and we’re not related to China Post, we just use their ePacket service for our clients). I’ll reach out to you via email with a few questions so I can prepare a quotation for you. Thanks!

      I will let you know if there is an option we can offer you for shipping to Afghanistan.

    1. Hi Omaj,

      Unfortunately, Nigeria is not on the list of supported countries for ePacket.

      I will email you if there is something we can offer you for shipping to Nigeria.

            Wale

          2. Hi Wale,

            As soon as China Post adds Nigeria to the list of supported countries for either ePacket or eExpress we will let you know.

    1. Hi Ajit,

      Unfortunately, this is not something we can help you with. We are a logistics company that uses the services of China Post, we are not China Post.

      For any problems you may have with a delayed delivery that did not go through us, you’ll have to reach out to your seller.

    1. Hi Lyn,

      Unfortunately, Ghana is not on the list of supported countries for ePacket.

      However, China Post is always extending the list of supported countries for both ePacket and eExpress, so maybe in the future, they will add Ghana to the list. If that happens, I will let you know. We are always trying to keep the list on our website up-to-date, so try to check it from time to time to see if there are any updates.

    1. Hi Kaye,

      Unfortunately, Philippines are still not on the list of supported countries for ePacket and we do not know when and if that is going the happen. That depends entirely on China Post and if they add the Philippines to the list, we will inform you. In the meantime, there is an option we can offer you for shipping to Phillippines. I will send you all the details in an email.

    1. Hi Praise,

      Unfortunately, Philippines are not on the list of supported countries for either ePacket or eExpress. However, there is an option we can offer you. I will send you the details in an email.

  9. Hello,

    Is there any plans to extend epacket services in the Middle East?
    Include : UAE , Lebanon, Qatar, Jordan

    Saudi Arabia is already added to the list…

    1. Hi Marco,

      Unfortunately, that’s not a question we can give an answer to. ePacket is service offered by China Post and they decide which countries are supported. We are always trying to keep the list on our website up-to-date, so try to check it from time to time to see if there are any updates. You can also check the list of countries supported by eExpress shipping.

    1. Hi Vaishakh,

      Official China Post EMS shipping time for shipping to the UK using ePacket service is 7 to 10 business days.

      1. Dear Natasa,

        If I ship all my goods to Turkey then I arrange from Turkey to Iraq, Could you tell me Estimated time needed to delivery from China ( Aliexpress ) to Turkey? because I checked some products on Aliexpress its written 20 to 40 days as thats too long, but in your website is written 7 to 10 days, could you tell me the correct one?

        Regards
        Rebin

    1. Hi Albert,

      Thank you for reaching out! I will explain all the details regarding shipping to the Philippines in an email.

    1. Hi Pepe,

      Unfortunately, we do not decide which countries are added to the list for ePacket service. ePacket and eExpress are services offered by China Post EMS and they decide which countries are supported. However, China Post keeps adding new countries to the list, so it may happen that they will support shipping to the Philippines in the future.

  11. Hi,

    Need shipping details to South Africa please.

    Any idea when S.A. will be added to the list for ePacket?

    Kind regards.

    Melanie.

    1. Hi Melanie,

      Unfortunately, we do not know when and if South Africa is going to be added to the list of supported countries for ePacket service. That depends entirely on China Post. However, they are always expanding the list of supported countries and we try to keep up with their updates, so once they add a new country to the list, we make sure to update the list on our website.

      In the meantime, we can offer you eExpress service for shipping to South Africa. I will send you all the details regarding this shipping service in an email.

  12. Hi there. I’e noticed that some products ship to few countires mentioned in the list, but not to all of them. For example, product ships to Norway but not to Austria. Why’s that?
    TY

    1. Hi Dylan,

      I’m not sure I understand your question since both Austria and Norway are on the list of supported countries by ePacket. Can you please let me know which list are you referring to?

  13. HI Natasa,

    I’m from India too & I’m interested in ePacket service/s. Please send the details.

    1. Hi Mangirish,

      I will explain all the details regarding shipping from China to India in an email.

  14. Dear Sir,

    I have a question regarding the ePacket service. I have an ecommerce website and a warehouse in China and I want to ship my products to US. Could I use ePacket service directly? and how could I use the service?

    Thank,

    1. Hi Akkhalin,

      In order to use our services, you would need to store your products in our warehouse. For shipping the products directly from your warehouse, you’ll need to contact China Post.

  15. Hi, I’m reffering to this list. What I mean is some products on aliexpress that use ePacket, ship their products with ePacket to only part of the list, and not the full list. For example: product X ships to only 12 countries out of 33 from the list. Did you understand?

    1. Hi Dylan,

      You can ship to all the countries on this list using ePacket. However, AliExpress sellers choose which countries to support and that’s completely their decision. We have no influence over it.

  16. Hello, Natasha.
    Please share information about fast shipping to India from China. I run ecommerce business, so, will need the service on regular basis.

    1. Hi Mustafi,

      I will send you an email explaining all the details about shipping to India from China.

  17. Dear Natasa,

    could you also send me the shipping details for Pakistan please?

    Thanks !

    Best Regards.

    1. Hi Ahmed,

      Thank you for reaching out!

      Unfortunately, China Post EMS does not support shipping to Pakistan at the moment. So, we cannot offer you a cheap and reliable option for shipping to Pakistan. However, they are always expanding the list of supported countries, so try to check our website regularly for the updates.

    1. Hi Caleb,

      Unfortunately, this is not something we can help you with. We are a logistics company that stores products for our clients in our warehouse and ship them directly to their customers using ePacket (which is a service offered by China Post EMS).

      AliExpress sellers choose countries they want to support, and there is nothing we can do about it. You can try to reach out to AliExpress seller and ask them if they’d be willing to ship the product to your address.

  27. Good day good people,
    Will you kindly assist by sending me ePacket rates for all supported countries? I am a Dropshipper; this will greatly help me adequately set my shipping prices.

  34. I would like information on how to ship from the US to other countries via epacket. I also want information to ship to India and South Africa.

    1. Hi Michel,

      Unfortunately, this is not something we can help you with. We are located in China and we can only ship from China to other countries.

  35. Thanks for pointing out that USPS also has an ePacket service along with China Post, that’s very helpful and clears up some confusion!

    Since package size and weight limitations are one of the disadvantages I’ve come across with ePacket, I learned in this article https://www.abetterlemonadestand.com/epacket-shipping/ that there’s another service called eExpress that’s similar to ePacket in that it offers fast and trackable shipping but for packages that don’t meet ePacket package size and weight restrictions. Is this something you offer?

    1. Hi Nikki,

      Yes, we do offer eExpress shipping. In fact, the blog post you linked to recommends reaching out to us for more information about it. 🙂

      If you’d like to get pricing, submit a quote request and someone on our team will get back to you on Monday!
