What we need to know about ePacket shipping time?

For dropshipping, ePacket has long been known as a great shipping method. In the past, goods from China must be shipped overseas. However, shipping time of ePacket from China factories to US shoppers could take up to 8 weeks which implies that customers have to wait a long time before they could receive their packages and thus creates customers’ dissatisfaction in the long term and affects sellers’ profit. 

However, ePacket features with an automated tracking shipment status tool is a great way for sellers and buyers to keep track of their items. It enables shoppers to be informed about possible delayed delivery. This helps to reduce customer dissatisfaction by providing them with the latest updates on the location as well as a more reliable time on which they are expected to receive their order.

What makes ePacket the perfect choice for dropshippers?
There are two main elements which answer this question: it is tracking-enabled orders and shipping time, whose reliability and efficiency are believed to improve shopping experience for buyers in eCommerce platforms. 

For most ePacket countries, shipping time could take from 10-20 working days. Here are specific shipping time for some ePacket countries:

  • Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore: 2 – 4 business days
  • South Africa: 10 – 15 business day
  • Mexico: 20-25 business days
  • India, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus: 7 – 10 business days
  • United Kingdom, France, Spain, Netherlands, Canada, USA, Australia: 5 – 7 business days

There might be cases in which packages get delayed during high-traffic times such as holidays. Or in such unwanted and unavoidable circumstances (for instance, world pandemic), it is advisable for sellers to provide purchase details (PayPal receipts, for example) and the ePacket tracking number for customers. 

Thanks to the tracking system, packages can now be easily monitored and tracked. Additionally, in case of delays, sellers will be notified so as to prevent customers dissatisfaction during their shopping experience.
