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.

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 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!

          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.

      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 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. 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.
