Average ePacket Shipping Times

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.

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,

    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,

          Thanks for reaching out! I will send you the details for shipping to India in an email.

  2. I have hundreds of small merchandises I need ship to individual US customers. My China office is in Shanghai, the items are 2-5 ozs by weight. Would you advise me how to start? Whom should we talk to to set up account?

    Best Rgds,


    1. Hi Chuck,

  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!

  4. Hi,
    Do you know if South Africa will be added to the list in future? It would be great to be able to offer quick and efficient shipping times.

      1. Hi Natasa

        Can you please share the options you can offer for shipping to South Africa.

        Best regards.
