If you are dropshipping you must have heard about epacket which is the fastest cost efficient way to ship items from Aliexpress. Sometimes its even free.
ePacket shipping has made buying products from China a lot easier. To maintain a competitive advantage over merchants in China, it’s important to understand what ePacket shipping is and why it has become a popular shipping method from China and Hong Kong.
In 2011, the United States Postal Service formally announced the new shipping service and agreement with Hong Kong Post and eBay China, allowing packages from China and Hong Kong to receive USPS First Class Mail Service along with a delivery confirmation service.
As the name (“ePacket) implies, the shipping service was designed for ecommerce, to make it more affordable and quicker for consumers to receive their purchases from online stores and marketplaces that shipped out from China and Hong Kong.
