What Are the advantages of Using ePacket Delivery?
As the name “ePacket” suggests, the shipping service was created for eCommerce purposes, to deliver products purchased from online stores and marketplaces from China and Hongkong to customers worldwide with a much faster, cheaper and more secure experience.
ePacket delivery became so successful starting from the US and expanding to more and more countries. The list of countries that have access to ePacket is constantly growing. Now let’s go through the advantages of using ePacket delivery:
Standard methods of shipping from China to other parts of the world usually take months. But, with ePacket delivery, you get a much faster delivery time. Of course, you can not expect the delivery time faster than DHL, TNT, FedEx, etc which are not economic shipping or FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon), but you can expect your delivery to reach your customer in a span of 10-20 days.
Average ePacket Shipping Times
- Brazil: 20 to 30 business days
- Mexico: 20 business days
- Vietnam: 5-7 business days
- Russia, Ukraine, and Saudi Arabia: 7-15 business days
- All other supported countries: 7-10 business days
ePacket is the most economic shipping with the fastest delivery so far. Especially when the international purchase parcel is of lightweight and small value, both customers and sellers are not willing to pay the high shipping costs. With this cheap shipping cost, sellers can achieve more profit after offering a better price. And buyers are more likely to enjoy their purchase of “Made-in-China” products.
ePacket delivery offers end to end tracking for every parcel without any extra cost. This is the “MUST” for drop shippers or worldwide buyers. If you own dropshipping business, basically you will worry about the shipping the same as the buyers. Epacket will make you stress-free comparing other economical shipping. As soon as the carrier received the parcel and scanned the code, you can track your parcel. And the tracking is very simple and we will discuss it in our next section.
Another benefit to the customers and the sellers are security senses that any undelivered item will be returned, without any additional expense. This, in turn, improves the customer-merchant relationship, as the online merchants could provide refunds on any packages that were not successfully delivered to customers. The return, however, is arranged collectively in a certain period.
Payment of postal customs: Any customs, duties, and/or taxes must be paid by the recipient of the shipment. As the ePacket delivery goes through regular custom clearance, customers may need to pay any applicable taxes and duties. This isn’t an ePacket shipping issue but an international shipping one. But due to the low value of the parcel in most cases, the duty or tax can be ignored.
