ePacket Shipping Restrictions

by Afroz Nissar, 18 Comments.

As always, there are restrictions when it comes to shipping packages internationally. Here’s an overview of the rules to follow if you want to ship via ePacket.

What is the weight limit for ePacket packages?

Each package, including boxes and filler material, should not be greater than 2 kg. The only exception to this is when shipping to Israel – packages to Israel can be up to 3 kg.

How big or small can ePacket packages be?

Minimum package size:

  • Regular packages should not have a length less than 14 cm and width less than 11 cm.
  • Rolled-up packages should have a minimum length of 11 cm. Additionally, twice the diameter plus the length should be more than 17 cm (2d + l >= 17).

If your packages are smaller than this, it’s not usually an issue as we can use a larger box and add in filler material.

Maximum Package Size

  • The longest side of a regular package should not be more than 60 cm. Additionally, the sum of the length, width and height should not be greater than 90 cm (l + w + h <= 90).
  • The longest side of a rolled-up package should not be more than 90 cm. Additionally, twice the diameter plus the length should not be more than 104 cm (2d + l <= 104).

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,
    I am from Malaysia. I would like to know is there any restriction where Malaysia authority (Custom) will hold any goods from China via ePacket Express due to tax clearance?

    1. Hi Nazir,

      Unfortunately, that’s not a question we can give a definitive answer to. It depends on the contents of the package and the commercial value of the products. If the commercial value is low and the products are not restricted in the recipient’s country, the chances of customs problems are low (but never zero).

      We recommend reaching out to your customs office for more details.
